DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London-Westminster, June 2019


Since her first Social Media Course for Writers, in a country pub’s private room near Guildford in 2015, Anita has run courses in Surrey, Kent, York and a few venues in London. In 2020, Anita’s London courses will take place at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London – Tower of London (due to refurb of 2019 venue), a lovely venue, two minutes from Tower Hill tube station.

Former Attendees say…

Former attendees have described Anita’s courses as informative, easy to understand, confidence-building, inspiring, informal and enjoyable; and often they couldn’t wait to get started on improving their online presence when returning home. Attendees bring laptops and the day is practical, relaxed and friendly.

There are plenty of refreshment breaks and a sit-down lunch in the restaurant, allowing attendees time to get to know each other so they can use this to their advantage when interacting on social media. Online relationships are strengthened when you know a person ‘in real life’ too:
