We’ve partnered with Google to develop, design and deliver Squared Online

In 2012, Google responded to a growing skills gap in digital marketing by providing a face-to-face intensive course called Squared.

The overwhelming success of this course meant that just one year later Google and Avado would come together to develop Squared Online, which applies Google’s experienced-based teaching style into an online course that could be completed anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

At the end of your journey with Squared Online, you’ll be equipped with the tools needed to optimise your marketing strategies and a better understanding of how to become a  more effective change-maker in your organisation.
