"Amanda provided training on LinkedIn to our business, Thompsons Advisors and Accountants Ltd, and she was superb. Amanda explained what we needed to do in straightforward, jargon free language and took us through a number of the steps to show us how simple the process was. Amanda encouraged us to make the necessary amendments to our profiles and gave us a timetable as a pointer to what we needed to do on LinkedIn on a regular basis. All in all we all feel a lot more confident that we can make realistic use of LinkedIn in our business in the future. The whole process was enjoyable and excellent value for money and we, as a business, do not hesitate to recommend Amanda to anyone needing training on LinkedIn. Additionally I would personally recommend Amanda for her ability to target the training to each of the people present without loosing the attention of the other attendees."
John Davies
Partner, Thompsons Accountants
"I have been to a few seminars on social media and Amanda was able to explain the benefits in a way that no other has done. She made me realize the enormous power LinkedIn has as a communication and marketing tool for non-profit organisations. My knowledge on how to utilize sites such as LinkedIn and Twitter not only as a business and personal tool has grown immensely, as well as my enthusiasm. Amanda is an amazing women, who is clearly passionate and enthusiastic about her field. I recommend all to arrange a consultation immediately!"
Whitney Brown
Events Officer at Help Musicians
"Amanda has conducted Linkedin Training for two members of The Product Marketing Company (TPMC) team so far. She is extremely personable and knows her subject inside out. She is extremely astute, able to pitch her training at exactly the right level and offers advice and constructive criticism. She provides training literature and leads by example having made LinkedIn work as a powerful networking tool for herself. I have no hesitation in recommending Amanda; by the end of the first session, you feel exhausted (it's a lot to take in), but you feel informed, invigorated and ready to embrace LinkedIn and all the advantages it can bring. You also feel, at the risk of sounding slightly corny, that you have made a new friend!"
Emma Garrett
Deputy Lieutenant
"If you're going to participate in online social networking then you should find out the best ways to use it and Amanda is extremely knowledgeable in how to maximise presence and your connections on LinkedIn. Amanda gave me ideas on how to use LinkedIn that I wouldn't have thought about and save so much time in other areas of my business such as sales. I would recommend Amanda to anyone that wants to engage properly on LinkedIn and make the most of it!."
Anne Timpany
Women in Construction Ambassador
"If anyone is wondering if it is is worth one to one LinkedIn coaching with Amanda - I can highly recommend it. As a result of meeting Amanda at the last Hoxton Apprentice lunch my Husband and I spent three hours with Amanda last week having our first lesson. We have been using LinkedIn for some time and knew there was so much we didn't know. I now have one of my presentations linked through Slide-show and on my way to categorising all my contacts. Still so much to learn; Amanda makes it clear, understandable, appropriate and fun. I am now looking forward to Lesson 2, as long as I do my homework. Thanks Amanda."
Fran Moscow
Managing Director, Fran Moscow Consultancy
"I had signed up for LinkedIn some time ago but didn't really know how it worked. With Amanda's training and support I now have a much greater understanding of how to use it on a day to day basis, to keep in touch with existing contacts and hopefully to develop that base of contacts to enhance our business in the future."
Trevor Wiseman
Director at Thompsons Accountancy Services Ltd

I met Amanda several months ago at a networking event and during that time I got to know her quite well. She is very personable and has a genuine interest in you as a person and as a business person.

It is fair to say, I still have a lot more to learn and I will continue to use and recommend her expertise. Nigel Taylor, RHG Financial Services, Stevenage

Wow. How many great ideas can be transmitted in such a brief training session? My mind was buzzing as Amanda taught me each new feature of LinkedIn. It is true that there was quite a void to be filled (my brain) and lots of data and functions to learn, but most of it seems to have stuck. Watch this space!!! Tony Morris FRSA, Marquis Wealth Management, Welwyn

Amanda recently provided me with a 45 minute LinkedIn review. I found her insights to be excellent and her recommendations both practical and extremely useful.

Thank you for your help. Heena Pattni, Beyond Excellence, Harpenden

I had a Linkedin Spring Clean with Amanda, but rather than spring cleaning she gave me a multitude of ways and means to use LinkedIn more effectively.
