On the whole, the course is good, I spotted a few typos and ambiguities which I communicated to the team and now seem to be fixed. As a learning platform, you are closer to perfect than you think. My daughter's Nec GCSE courses are a nightmare in comparison.

An excellent course for new creatives, as a refresher for more experienced creatives, or to be honest, anybody who has to do ‘storyselling’ (see what I did there) in their business life - in other words, anyone. How did you hear about us? Already a subscriber to 42 Courses, and have had various work recognised (short-listed) at the Cannes Lions over the years. Was also a judge at the Cannes Cyber Lions and Young Lions some years ago. How can we make your experience even better? Yet again - content was top notch, some of the frameworks were great little reminders, great to see some of the great Cannes work used as part of the teachings. All in all, almost as good as it gets 🙂

It was a great experience hearing from the world's top creative people from one place!

Great, diverse and rich content provided in an easy to read and memorable way. I liked the switch between videos and text, the links to extra resources and reading and the wealth of examples provided that makes the course more concrete and helps project how to apply the learnings.

The examples where interesting but I needed it to be more practical with Technics not just the information.

A very interesting subject and I really liked the setup of the course. Short, interesting lectures, clear examples and questions that invited to some reflection. Well done!

Really enjoyed the presentation of behavioural science within the context of brands and advertising. The discussion section below each lesson is also quite insightful; pls expand this to include as many comments as possible.

Many great insights. Strong brand and marketing focus!

Excellent course to help think through the concept and practical steps to increase creativity.

I have been reading for several years in and around behavioural science. This course provided a plethora of further reading, and sites to add to my list. Very enjoyable and perfectly balanced between information and interaction with great tempo. You just want to go on and on.

This course is a revelation. A complete departure from how you’ll remember the tedious classroom based learning of your youth. Storytelling is engaging, entertaining, practical and effective in delivering learning. Featuring some excellent speakers, loads of great examples and a lovely touch of humour along the way. Delivered as bite sized chunks to allow for it to be incorporated in your busy day. I also love the gamification aspect, which inspired me to try and climb the leaderboard. Highly recommended

I loved the storytelling course. It helped me think about adverts as more than product recommendations but rather the different stories have to tell.
