“I was lucky enough to join Merrin’s 2021 video workshop. The content was well researched and delivered with humour making it enjoyable as well as extremely useful. We came away with information on hardware, apps and loads of tips for creating current videos with just our smart phones. Result was ability to produce quality content to effortlessly support our branding strategy.

Merrin has a gift for making something daunting seem like an everyday easy must!”
