Guest Lecture Request

Dennis Yu is committed to helping young students develop digital marketing skills. He’s built a library of courses and shared his expertise through workshops and seminars at multiple Universities around the world.

Additionally, in an effort to make the transition into digital marketing a lot easier for aspiring students, Dennis has created multiple job opportunities through his projects. CoachYu is a great example of this, with a mission of creating a million jobs for students and less-privileged youth.

In 30 years of active involvement in this mission, thousands of students went through our process, working as interns, or part-time/full-time employees - gathering knowledge and real-life experience.
