Shimmy Marcus, Creative Director, Bow Street:
“Screen Leaders proved to be a perfect combination of theory and practical advice with a concrete implementation structure so you get to see real benefits from what you learn on the course. The opportunity to network with industry leaders was also extremely beneficial and has helped us establish new partnerships and open new markets. I can’t recommend Screen Leaders highly enough for providing critical advice, feedback, and ongoing support in the development of our company.”

Lindsay Campbell, Underground Films:
“Screen Leaders is a challenging yet hugely rewarding course. It provided the business audience we needed to expand our company and move it in the right direction. Crucially, we were supported by a team and mentors who wanted us to succeed.”

Dave Quinn, CEO, Windmill Lane Pictures Ltd:
“We found the course extremely focused and tailored very specifically to our industry. It was very helpful to be coached by and hear case studies with very experienced people from Ireland and Europe who really understand the complexities and nuances of our business. The course got us from theory into action mode from the very start.”
