I have worked with SocialB as a Social Media and Digital Marketing Training Partner since 2015. After completing my degrees at Keele University and the University of Birmingham I am very lucky to have had over 20 years varied experience working with many different industries. My expertise, however, is marketing and business development with a particular focus on franchising and retail. I love training and my favourite part of any training course is seeing the “light bulb moments” when the delegates start to understand how digital marketing works and how they can apply it to their own business to really make a difference. Knowing that our delegates leave the course armed with the knowledge and a plan to make positive changes is very rewarding. I am a mum of four active boys (and a Cavapoo) and am a keen walker. In 2018 I am taking part in the #1000miles challenge where I am walking 1000 “boots on” miles and have walked up Scafell Pike and Snowdon in the last 12 months. My favourite quote is “Never put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket”. It reminds me that happiness comes from within and to be truly happy you have to love and respect yourself so you can take control of your own destiny.
