Hello, hello everyone, and welcome to our 'Canva Essentials' course!

I am so glad you’re here and have decided to start your Canva journey with us.

Meet your instructors

My name is Ronny, and I'll be teaching this course with my wife, Diana.

We are both Verified Canva Experts, handpicked by Canva as their top brand ambassadors. Being a Canva Expert means we have the privilege of accessing new features before they roll out to the public, and often collaborate with Canva on various projects.

Apart from Udemy, Diana & I share our love for Canva on our YouTube channel, which features over 500 tutorials dedicated to learning how to use the platform!

I also personally had the chance to work at Canva's Sydney headquarters for two years, giving me invaluable insights into the company, the values it stands for and of course the product itself.

Let us be your Canva Gurus

We know getting started with Canva can feel intimidating at first.

You might be wondering where to start or feel overwhelmed by all the features and options available. If this sounds like you, don't worry—it's completely natural to feel uncomfortable when starting something new.

But rest assured, we're here to guide you, step-by-step.

We’ll help you move past this beginner’s block, and grow confident in your ability to use Canva to achieve your goals.

I'm from Colombia, but I live in Barcelona, Spain.

I have 10+ years of experience in the world of digital marketing, working with various companies in Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania.

My passion for helping entrepreneurs with their digital communication began while traveling around the world with a non-profit organization. I saw that many entrepreneurs needed assistance with various digital topics, thus I started my journey as an instructor, providing training on digital marketing and social media management.

Now, I offer these courses digitally, and I love it because I can have a much bigger impact than I ever imagined!
