"Very useful session on LinkedIn with Elaine, looking at all the settings and hidden bits that most people will miss. Lots of ideas on how to improve my use of LinkedIn and get my profile viewed more often. I would highly recommend."
- Pam Beale
"The (LinkedIn) training was so different to what I had experienced before. Elaine got us to focus on our own needs and objectives and understand the mechanics behind the scenes, including how it could work for us and how we could add value to the relationships we build on the platform. What we were trying to achieve as a business was much more important than it being 'just a numbers game', Putting together quality content and building a strong online presence were key parts of the training event that I took away and have decided to work on to improve my own experience long term."
- Richard Scott, Dip PFS
I couldn’t have done this without Elaine’s passion, loyalty, professionalism, empathy, quality and accuracy of work and last, but not least, her skills as a writer. Elaine has made my book the way it was meant to be.
