I have had the pleasure of taking two 10 week Social Media Training courses from Jeff Brown with Alpha Social Media. Both courses were tailored to the needs and knowledge levels of the class participants and Jeff always found specific examples to make the material relevant to the various industries of the students. It is obvious that Jeff loves what he does and imparts his extensive knowledge with enthusiasm and skill.

The non-intimidating class atmosphere created by Jeff facilitates learning in a fun and friendly environment. Jeff is continually staying abreast of all developments in social media and Jeff incorporates the latest trends and products in his class material. I can highly recommend social media training with Jeff Brown at Alpha Social Media.

Jeff, this Social Media 1 class has been an eye-opener!! You have taken the terror out of Twitter, and helped me understand how I can use a variety of social media tools to benefit our Emergency Department and my own consulting business. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise in a fun and encouraging environment. You have adeptly answered all of our questions, and made this relevant to everyone in the class-regardless of their organization. I look forward to the next sessions!
