I should be able to type this recommendation really quickly. After all, I say these words verbally almost every day and have done for years! As a marketing coach and business support adviser, I need to know about social media, and have a particular interest in how a business wishes to be perceived online as part of their full marketing strategy. Anything beyond that I refer to Amanda! We have the same ethos and she is the only person I know who knows the latest rumour/buzz/timewaster in social media, as it happens. She has her finger on the pulse constantly which means she is the ideal person to deliver Social Media Training. Hundreds of my clients and close contacts have appreciated Amanda’s broad knowledge and her charming training style, not to mention her quick (and dry!) sense of humour which makes people feel good about being sociable online. An absolute gem and a must if you’re looking for truly ‘social’ media training

I recently had the pleasure of attending session on social media with Amanda and I have to say it was both rewarding and engaging. Whilst Amanda had been given a brief to follow, she more than picked up spontaneous questions and certainly tailored the session to the level of learners she had in the room. I can confidently say that Amanda would add value to any business who wants to up the interaction with their audience via their social media platforms
Social media training provided by Amanda Dixon was easy to follow and understand. It is given me a confidence to branch out and make greater use of LinkedIn. Excellent service. Thanks Amanda
I have attended 2 of Amanda’s excellent courses now and cannot recommend her highly enough. Her depth of knowledge seems limitless and she comes across well to all ability levels, and all done with infectious enthusiasm
Amanda has delivered two in house training sessions on utilizing social media in our role as lawyers to myself and colleagues at Jacksons Law Firm. Amanda’s style of delivery was warm, witty and personable and she is extremely knowledgeable on her subject area. Following the training I feel much more adept and confident in using social media to promote my legal and other working activities to my professional contacts. I would not hesitate to recommend Amanda

We needed some help to refresh and update our social media skills and Amanda had been recommended to us. She didn’t disappoint! Amanda tailored a session to us and showed us lots of things we didn’t already know. She showed us how to develop a social media strategy and guided us on content. We have already seen improved engagement as a result
