These are just a few of the testimonials received at The Social Media Cafe.
Nia Boulton - Social Media Training in 2012 - April 30, 2012 - “I used to roll my eyes when people claimed to be an expert in social media. As far as I was concerned, social media was too new and evolving at such a pace that it would be impossible for anyone to class themselves as an expert. That was until I began a Foundation Degree in Social Media and heard Amanda Hill speak in week 3 of the course. Amanda’s knowledge of social media and how it can be used to benefit your business is extensive to say the least. It can’t have been an easy task speaking to a group of people with such varied social media experience, but Amanda captivated each and every one of us and left us all knowing which route we were going to take next. Completely inspiring, engaging and educational; if you want to learn more about social media and how you can integrate it into your business, look no further than this Social Media Guru! I can’t wait to have her back in year 2. Thank you Amanda.”
Stuart Wilson - Business Consultant in 2012 April 29, 2012 - “I was looking for a Social Media Expert who could help my company build a robust Social Media Strategy, within minutes of talking to Amanda I realised she was the real deal. Not only was Amanda able to help us achieve our goals along the way she created a motivating experience for everyone. My Company has a mission statement of “We inspire people to journey beyond their expectations” I can honestly say Amanda you achieved this with us! If you are looking for help with Social Media then look no further Amanda is the answer!”

Dinah Liversidge - “Amanda has restored my faith in LinkedIn. I was convinced this platform within social media was not for me and I was unclear about the results I was getting from it – if any. Amanda allowed me to get clarity about how and why to use LinkedIn as part of my social media presence and explained where it would help me. Her approach was clear while non-patronising and highly engaging. I am looking forward to learning more and would recommend her to anyone who wants to get results from LinkedIn – real results. Thank you Amanda, Social Media Goddess!” April 2, 2012
Angus Grady “Amanda and The Social Media Cafe have had an enormous positive impact on our business. The training that Amanda and The Social Media Cafe provide has enabled Customeyes to get new business from a range of clients including a National brand. Her training on LinkedIn,FaceBook and Twitter as well as the on going support that The Social Media Cafe FaceBook group provides is superb. Amanda is so ahead of the game in terms of expertise, understanding and sheer customer service that I unreservedly recommend her as someone that you need to talk to when it comes to Social Media. There are “Experts” out there who can not get close to Amanda and the sheer depth and extent of her knowledge.” January 3, 2012
