SEO and social media expert Nichola Stott (Founder, themediaflow) and PR and social media specialist Claire Thompson (Founder, Waves PR – that’s me) have today announced the launch of a new joint venture, SEO PR Training.

The company ‘does what it says on the can’, offering tailored SEO training to PR people and strategic media skills training to SEO practitioners.

PR people struggle with the conflicting information that they are bombarded with regarding SEO, making it hard to know who to believe and how best to advise clients. Many SEO technicians lose sight of the fact that the world doesn’t only consist of  links, making it easy to miss the bigger picture.

Preparing for the launch, we have given proof of concept sessions with agencies, which has helped inform the level of training offered, and undertaken some state of the art facilitator training to add to existing training experience and qualifications.

The most important factor is that the learning will be fun, and immediately practical.

Our courses will be bespoke, tailored to customers’ specific needs to make it relevant to both the level of trainee, agency remit and their client sectors. We do plan to run some open sessions later in the year to offer access to freelancers and small agencies, but will make these public close to the time.

Interested customers can find out more from the website (, on Twitter @seoprtraining, or by calling 44(0)1420 540227
