Section4 Reviews: Is It Worth It?

Thomas Stephan

As a specialist in corporate sales, Thomas had always wanted to improve his storytelling skills – an essential skill, especially in his craft. But he didn’t think it was worth the time or money to go back to school. Then he found Section 4.

He first came across Section4 in a newspaper, where he read how the online platform’s courses can improve one’s marketing skills. This, along with the affordable price tag of $83 a month for a Section4 course, immediately caught his eye.

“When I heard it cost only $83 a month to enroll in a Section4 course, I said to myself, now is the time. Worst case scenario, if I didn’t like the course, I’ll get my money back.” , he said.

His mind quickly changed after he signed up for Section4’s Storytelling Sprint and attended its first lecture, led by noted author and journalist Will Storr. “I jumped on the ship and from then on I was impressed,” said Thomas. He found that the concepts outlined in the course were easy to learn and complex topics were broken down for easy understanding.”

This is not surprising. With busy professionals in mind, Section4 has designed its courses to be practical, engaging, thought-provoking and immediately applicable. Students will have the opportunity to explore their creative skills while building a community of diverse learners. The program was also flexible, Thomas said, adding that Section4 made online learning feel like a face-to-face lesson.

“I also noticed the result [of the course] at work…the positive feedback was immediate,” said Thomas. “I love the Section4 Slack community… The teaching assistant kept the conversation going. Section 4 encouraged me to: [step] out of my comfort zone and interact with people outside my personal network. It has a community effect that keeps someone engaged.”

By the end of the course, Thomas was happy to have signed up. “I’m glad Section4 was able to bring out the light in me and put me in the hero position to face my shadows,” he said. “I always promote it to my colleagues.”

Monica Farag

Monica works as director of growth strategy at Direct Agents. She spoke at length about her experience learning business strategy under the guidance of Section4 founder Scott Galloway and the benefits the platform brings to its members.

“I got into the program and came out with a network and a community. I don’t know if I knew [anything] about additional options of membership before [enrolling] at the sprint. [However]it gives you access to a career coach and a thought partner,” Monica said.

“It’s not just about the curriculum. You actually join a community of like-minded individuals whether they work in the same industry or not. It’s something I haven’t had in years. So I’m very excited to take advantage of the benefits of Section4 membership,” she added.

Monica met people who worked in healthcare, fashion, logistics and supply chain management. It was probably the most exciting part, she said, adding that connecting with different people opened her eyes to new perspectives.

Like Thomas, Monica wanted to share her experience with her colleagues and organization so that they too know how Section4 courses can increase productivity.

“It was interesting to see some similarities between what we have in our company with the accelerator course material. You know, [things like] rapid growth, mentorship and networking opportunities.

“I took that with me to my HR department. I shared the snap with them and told them to look at it and do it,” she said.
