Read about some past learners' experiences:

Lucy Polkinghorne
TV Journalism

Working as a journalist for nine years, I had skills in writing, presenting, interviewing, researching and media relations, but I was lacking in many critical PR skills. The HSPR course was fantastic in bridging this gap and helped me make a smooth transition from TV reporting into public relations.

Tamma Kirkby
Travel & Tourism

The skills I’ve learnt have not only improved my performance in my PR roles but have been a major contributor to job promotions along the way. My confidence level in making critical decisions, creating copy and implementing complex PR campaigns has consistently grown with the more I learn.

Ruth Quirk
Oil & Gas

I could integrate the seminars into my working week, and apply the assignments to my actual work. The skills I gained and the individual feedback and guidance gave me greater confidence in discussing new communication projects with senior management.
