My Clients

Testimonials

  • Working with Carrie on our marketing strategy has been great. She’s not afraid to ask the difficult questions, and is empathetic and wise, and has gently brought us to a place of greater understanding and insight about our messaging and audiences. I would definitely recommend her, and hope we get the chance to work together again.

    Susie Doyle, Mindful Therapies
  • As a Finance Officer I’m fine with numbers but sending out our newsletter via Mailchimp was a nightmare. Thankfully, Carrie’s one day training has totally changed my outlook. At first, I wasn’t convinced that I’d get to grips with it as easily as she said, however, I found Carrie’s teaching style to be relaxed, friendly and without jargon. By the end of the day I feel I am able to create and send our newsletter through Mailchimp without the blood, sweat and sometimes tears it cost me in the past.

    Pamela Johnston, Abbeyfield Newcastle.
  • The Mailchimp training was fully interactive and very interesting. I thought the group size worked well and it was good to hear other peoples experiences of Mailchimp. Although I've used Mailchimp for a while I still picked up lots of new and helpful tips and I really enjoyed the day.

    Helen Brown, Durham Community Action
  • Carrie has helped us develop and implement our new Communications Strategy. Her extensive knowledge and experience in this field has helped us identify how we ensure the Trust is able to raise it's profile and continue to reach and work with our beneficiaries, partners and commissioners. I would recommend Carrie to any organisation seeking to work with someone who is passionate about and understands our sector.

    Avril Gibson, CEO – Northern Learning Trust
  • It is a real pleasure working with Carrie. Since joining us as a Communications Consultant, she has brought her strengths and experience in communications and marketing: developing effective communications plans; improving the website, and delivering our e bulletin. Carrie has also provided me with excellent help on developing the Newcastles Passport tourism product for the Newcastles of the World. Possessing strong interpersonal skills and high-level IT skills, Carrie has a very positive and flexible approach, prioritises effectively and delivers on time.
