What do others say?

"I recently attended a ‘Get to Grips with Social Media’ workshop with Alex. As well as explaining the different platforms, scheduling tools and other practical aspects, she focussed on how important it is to tell our story as a way to connect with our audience. I recognised that this was definitely something that I could do more of.”

"Alex offered an amazing workshop in Social Media. The session was clear, concise and easy to follow, whether you were an absolute beginner or a little more advanced”

"Alex was enthusiastic and dynamic; she brought us together and energised us. This was an incredibly positive experience, from beginning to end."

Testimonial from Kate Hewett, Volunteering Support Officer at South Hams Community & Voluntary Services (CVS):
“Alex came to support South Hams Community and Voluntary Services develop their social media engagement. Alex made the team feel relaxed and able to talk about their experiences of social media and what they wanted to get out of it. Alex is enthusiastic about the subject and able to provide simple practical advice as well as longer term vision. Our session with Alex made us feel like we understood social media a little better and made us feel like we had a clear idea about how we could start making improvements in a manageable way.”
