Just want to share that I had an excellent brainstorming meeting recently with Trevor Ray of The Last Hurdle and he has enabled me to define a clear plan for my SEO with his assistance. He offered several affordable options depending on my budget and time available so I can now plan according to my situation. I’m excited to get started now. And no he didn’t ask for a plug!!!! Thanks Trevor and I’m looking forward to working with you.

“I have met Jules many times at local networking events in and around Northamptonshire over the last couple of months, including “Oaktree” which she organises with efficient professionalism and she has been a close aide during my early days of networking within the local business community. Jules is one of those people you would like to meet more of, she is straight forward, honest, positive and hard working. She always seems fully updated to people in her network, and is great fun to be around. In terms of her professional advice in areas of sales and marketing, it has a familiar feel of being breath takingly direct and sincere as my clients are used to receiving. Her consultations are not for the faint hearted!”

“As usual from Jules her course was delivered with great energy and terrific skills in enthusing her audience on her favourite subject of sales and marketing and in particular using social media to generate business relationships.
