What People Are Saying: "We have sent several Editors and Senior Journalists on Multimedia and Digital Storytelling courses at kdmcBerkeley. They have all come back testifying to the superbly high quality of the training and bursting with new ideas about how journalists should work in the digital space. These ideas have all been cascaded through BBC journalism and training in a series of workshops and editorial presentations. They have had a major impact on the way we tell stories and engage with audiences on ALL platforms – TV, Radio, Online and Mobile. There is no question that kdmcBerkeley are pioneers in the art of digital storytelling and social media, the latter an increasingly important facet of how the BBC and all media companies now operate. Any journalist who trains with kdmcBerkeley will learn transformational skills and new ways of connecting with audiences to bring back to their Newsrooms."-Chris Walton, Head of Social Media and Digital Training, BBC

Staff development is an essential component for taking advantage of digital opportunities. kdmcBerkeley supports management through the transition process to assure smooth implementation.
