Feedback from digital marketing delegates

Some delegate comments after the two-day digital marketing course I run for Kent Trainers. They rated both the course and the trainer (me!) 10/10.

“Easy to understand, layman’s terms. Not technical jargon.”

“Very patient and understanding. took time to listen.”

“Cannot fault. All useful.”


“Within a short space of time in a practical, interactive workshop session as part of a PSASE talk, Jackie demonstrated how a fresh approach to the words you use to describe your business in a strapline can result in that ‘penny dropping’ moment…

This is very much a personal recommendation; it worked for me!

Jackie specialises in writing without waffle, and can prove it from the stage. If you are looking for a speaker with a difference, where your audience will learn a different way of thinking about the words they use in their businesses, book Jackie.”
