ECS Skillnet Training Courses

Who are we?
ECS SkillNet was conceived by Boni Sones of Effective Communication Strategies (ECS). We have devised a range of communication tools to help busy PR professionals. Boni has created a range of training presentations and engaged the Cambridge based media consultants MagStar Limited to provide the design and technical support for this project.
