GOOGLE has awarded Simon Beer of Torquay a digital marketing qualification.
Simon, digital director at full service marketing agency, Big Wave Media, undertook the digital marketing course, called ‘Squared Online’, a new development by Google for tomorrow’s connected leaders.
It has been built by the best practitioners and delivered collaboratively online to create a new movement in career learning, featuring high profile guest speakers.
Simon was one of only 150 candidates selected to take part in the first live in-take.
He spent six months collaborating with other ‘Squares’ and being taught in online classrooms covering topics such as digital trends, data analysis, t-shaped principles, digital futures, display and search. He was then invited to the London Google HQ offices for the live graduation ceremony.
Ronnie Halden, of Big Wave Media, said: “This is a brilliant achievement by Simon and reinforces our position as a leading exponent of digital media within the overall marketing mix.”
