    What do our clients say about Greta Powell Training?


    Adobe MasterClass Training (InDesign, Photoshop, Premiere Pro & Illustrator)


    “Greta’s bespoke training meant that every minute I spent with her was useful and practical. She adapted the training as we went along which meant I got to learn how to use Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and more and delight my own clients at the same time with visual artefacts and exceed their expectations. I’m now in the process of pulling together a marketing and engagement strategy for my business a result of this training where I was totally blocked before.


    Highly, highly recommend this hands-on training”

    Nel, Director of Creative Coaching
