Six new video courses launch for CAMPUS members

Six brand new BookMachine CAMPUS video courses are available for +CAMPUS members to start dipping into to upskill, reskill or learn new skills.

BookMachine CAMPUS is our growing library of flexible, industry-specific video skills courses designed for publishing professionals. They have been created to give you the knowledge and practical tools you need to apply your learnings to your role and career progression.

This latest batch of courses covers topics from creating P&L reports, talking about race as an editor and planning engaging virtual events, to paid ads on Facebook and Instagram, social media listening strategies and creating bestselling audiobooks.

We would like to thank our amazing tutors who have put these courses together: Helena Markou, Rachel Gregory, Rachel Quin, Ruth D’Rozario, Suzanne Kavanaugh and Veronica Ferrari!
