Mercia webinars still as good as old SWAT?

SWAT has become Mercia. Is it still as good as it used to be?

Didn't find your answer?

I used to have a subscription with SWAT and found the course diversity incredible. I recently looked to rejoin them and found they have now become Mercia. The range appears to be smaller. I used to enjoy being able to really broaden my understanding with SWAT

Has anyone got experience with the new Mercia regime? I'm a bit nervous as my experience is that when larger companies take over good companies they often become worse, not better.

Most of them are fillums of real life seminars.

I'm no judge - I'm not keen on webinars and only watch them if I can't get to a face-to-face event.

I am so glad you posted this. I was a SWAT person now transferred to Mercia. And I agree the range of choice is a lot smaller, which is disappointing.
However, I only do the webinars now, so can't comment about the classroom type offerings. I recently watched a seminar called Transactions between the Limited Company & its directors, with P Frost as the speaker. I had previously thought SWAT presenters were excellent. Mr Frost was so fantastic I actually emailed Mercia to tell them so.
So I will probably renew with Mercia. But your post has prompted me to have a look around before the deadline. I was with SWAT for so many years I didn't have to worry, and now I'm thinking I need to be a bit more thoughtful.

I'd be interested if you found something better or at least similar.
I need webinars as live just doesn't work for me with childcare and other family responsibilities

Just got back from one of Phil Frost's entertainment shows, funnily enough.

I'm surprised that the webinars have reduced in numbers. The live shows have doubled since the amalgamation, 32 this year, as opposed to 16 last year. Albeit eight that I didn't consider relevant to me.
