Training for SEO and e-Commerce

David James Ross delivers customised training programmes and workshops for organisations supporting businesses with SEO and e-Commerce.

Over 20 Years working with websites and 25 years working as a trainer, David has helped a wide range of client organisations to meet the needs of their users and achieve project outcomes.

For anything from a half-day workshop to a full 12 day programme written to the needs of your audience or organisation, get in touch for an initial discussion.


David is an inspiring and motivational business professional. I have attended many of his workshops and find them interactive, informative and thoroughly engaging.

I particularly enjoy the informal nature of the sessions, where subjects can often lead to interesting and useful debate. David is an approachable group leader, who encourages group led activity. I look forward to working with him again in the future.

I have worked with David a number of times in my role as Incubation Manager at The University of Derby.

David developed a series of workshops to support our new residents and associate members to explore the issues around entering self employment with a highly creative business.

David had a great understanding of the complexities of balancing an individual's creativity with a need to work towards sustainability, and as a result I believe he has played a large role in the success of a number of our past residents, including Revolver Revolver and Tristan Poyser.

David was very responsive to the needs of his audience and as such developed the support package to include monthly peer support sessions and more intensive masterclasses.
