I’ve done a lot of social media training for business owners and charities in Yorkshire and further afield. Below are a few comments from recent social media speaker workshops (more on my LinkedIn profile):
Nicolas Chambras, Freelance Senior Art Director and Event Creative Director (July 2015)
“I attended the East Riding of Yorkshire program about social media for small businesses a few months ago.
To say I was sceptical about their real impact on my business is an understatement.
“Besides technical skills and clarity of his presentations that have led me to see these tools in a different way, there is a critical factor in his classes, he cares for his audience…
“Jonni is a very skilled person who has the ability to make you understand complete impalpable concepts.”
Mireille Digard-Slater, Organic wine online retailer and wine-tasting events organiser (June 2015)
“I have now attended 2 of Jonny’s workshops. What I like about his talks is that they open your eyes about the numerous opportunities available in the world of SEO and digital marketing and they make you feel empowered to ask the right questions if you have to have technical talks with your webmaster. He is very knowledgeable but still makes you feel comfortable with asking questions.
“I would also recommend subscribing to his blog which is very informative and frequently has little reminders of what I am supposed to be doing.”
Rebecca Gould, Marketing Executive at PHD Marketing & Strategy (June 2015)
“Jonny’s social media training course was really interesting a lot of info in all aspects of social media- especially SEO, LinkedIn and blogs which will really help me out with my new role.
“Really responsive and helpful to try and tailor explanations to individual business needs. Definitely worth attending.”
Gary Wood, Business Centre Manager at Royds Enterprise Park (June 2015)
“Jonny is an expert in the field of social media and I can recommend him. He has a great presentation style for training and has a very good way of connecting with people and making the sometimes overwhelming social media minefield seem a little less complicated!”
