I have attended two social media courses so far run by Amanda, one more to go on Friday.. both were so helpful to someone with an established business, but relatively new to social media. Amanda has an easy going, friendly, informal approach to her training, which allows interaction and therefore results in a much better understanding. I feel so much more confident and motivated to give it my all. It's still very early days, but I feel sure her training will pay off in leaps and bounds... Thank you so much Amanda. - Louise Brown Browns Language Services

I have attended several of Amanda's seminars on social media. She has given me invaluable training on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I can honestly say I would not have ventured into the world of social media without Amanda's support and training. I have just received my first clients from Twitter and am developing my social media presence directly as a result - Barbara Allen Lingua Forme Ltd

Amanda’s approachable and professional attitude along with her expertise and passion for Social Media is second to none.

I had a 1-2-1 session with her after meeting her at a networking event she had arranged in 2014. My knowledge of Social Media was practically non-existent and what impressed me the most about Amanda is her natural, easy-going style that makes learning so easy and effortless.

Implementing what she taught me has had such a positive impact on my business and as a Social Media expert she will always be my ‘go to’ person. - Tracey Tait Transcend You

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.
