It’s been several years since we’ve hosted in an in-person YouTube training workshop due to the world-wide changes, but our first date of 5th May was set, and we were both excited and apprehensive about starting them again. Although we’ve continued to provide some online training sessions over Zoom and in webinars, there is still something very different about delivering training face to face.
Additionally, while there are some fundamental principles to YouTube that don’t really change, the platform is constantly changing and evolving. Since we last delivered the workshop, there are new features, new opportunities, different strategies, changes in audience behaviour, more data to analyse… so a big part of our workshop was now all new material. While we were confident that this is now our best ever content, and we’re excited to share it, you don’t know always know how it’s going to land with the attendees. However, the training was a great success and we couldn’t be more pleased with the feedback.
The workshop venue
This particular workshop was held at a Worksmart Hub in Altrincham, which is just South of Manchester near our main offices. It’s super convenient if you arrive by public transport (there are trains, trams and busses, and it’s close to the airport), lots of parking if you’re driving, and pretty easy to find. We make sure that everyone is looked after, so there is an “infinite” supply of coffees, teas and waters, and everyone is well fed on the day!
From our feedback survey, everyone had no issue finding it.
A lot of our attendees were too polite to get stuck into all the food provided, so we had no issue with them taking a doggy bag home with them!
YouTube training attendee feedback
Attending the training, we had a wide range of people with different backgrounds and levels of experience – from small business owners to senior marketing executives of large brands. We try to make sure we cater for everyone regardless of experience and ability, even when we deep dive into some of the more complex aspects of the YouTube platform.
Below is the attendee feedback to some of the post-workshop questions we asked:

The attendees also very kindly left us some testimonials.
