Her enthusiasm and knowledge is obvious and truly showed she is able to help any entrepreneur get the very best out of Linkedin. If you are on Linkedin I would recommend that you contact Amanda and use her knowledge, you would be mad not too!”

Thankyou Amanda,         David Marshall

“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. Amanda’s advice is invaluable, and she’s not a techy. All instructions and ideas were clear, concise and so easy to put into practice. Amanda’s tips will transform my social networking.
Thank you.”        Rachel Lynch

“Amanda recently provided me with a 45 minute Linked In review. I found her insights to be excellent and her recommendations both practical and extremely useful. She took time to get to know what I wanted from the review and where I was, before giving me some really easy to put in place actions which I know will help drive my business forward. Thank you for your help.”            Heena Pattni

“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

“Amanda came to my rescue as I was a total novice within the LinkedIn network.

Thank you Amanda, and apologies to anyone on LinkedIn if I get carried away with my new ‘skill’!!”                           Andrea Bond

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

“Amanda has a wealth of creative ideas and gave invaluable advice to myself and my co-director when setting up our new business – Brewhouse Workshops. Her approach is realistic and un-intimidating and she is able to relate anecdotal scenarios from her own areas of expertise which we could relate to. She offered simple, practical solutions to us on areas of uncertainty which we implemented immediately – and they worked.
