The enduring power of testimonials

As any successful company knows, word-of-mouth recommendations are the best form of advertising! We are grateful that many people study our critical appraisal courses following recommendations from colleagues. It reassures us that we're delivering what our customers want. How do other people decide? If you don't know anyone who has attended a course, how do you decide whether to attend? Many websites contain customer testimonials but therein lies a problem - can you trust the testimonials? It takes literally seconds to type a few favourable comments! This problem of trust is something we've tackled on this website by showing handwritten testimonials - and not just a few selective ones either! On the Critical Appraisal Masterclass and Critical Appraisal Workshop pages, you can read hundreds of original testimonials from our satisified customers, all collected anonymously at the end of classroom events. We hope they illustrate why we have a reputation for the best critical appraisal skills training courses! Now that's something to shout about!

Updated responsive website design introduced

The criticalappraisal.com website has been given a makeover! The new logo is now in use throughout the site but the biggest change is behind the scenes. The new responsive design caters to the increasing number of people browsing on mobile phones and tablets. Pages automatically adjust to the size and orientation of smaller screens so that the text always remains readable. People browsing using high resolution display devices, such as the latest iPads and laptops, will also notice that the text and images on the website appear sharper. We've also taken the opportunity to review the infomation on the website. Pages are more concise and more tables and colour are used to break up longer pages. Taken together, we hope these changes make browsing the website an even better experience! Feedback is welcome via our helpdesk - get in touch!
