      “Heather volunteered to speak at our business networking group. Although we had asked her to cover a large topic area – web design and marketing, social media and SEO tips – Heather managed to organise the information into understandable sections. We had many questions for Heather; all of which she responded to in a confident and knowledgeable way.

      Heather’s talk was both informative and interesting. Her ideas are creative and her instructions for implementation are practical. I believe all of us greatly benefitted from her expertise.

      I highly recommend Heather as a trainer/speaker. I look forward to meeting her again and will be looking into attending some of her courses as she has left me with a thirst for knowledge and a desire to improve my online presence.”

      Chloe Hart, Holistic Therapist

      “Heather has run several excellent social media workshops for Airedale Hospital and our local Comms colleagues. She is really flexible, adaptable, practical, knowledgeable, tailored the learning to our needs and never made us feel silly whatever questions we asked!”

      Catherine Seal, Communications Manager, Airedale NHS Trust

      “Heather is a really enthusiastic trainer who knows her stuff. I really enjoyed her Social Media course and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others.”

      Carolyn Mitchell, Director, Campertronic Ltd

      “I can highly recommend Heather Robinson from Skittish who recently provided me with training & consultancy to set up a Facebook business page. Being completely clueless about Facebook, Heather guided me through everything step by step in clear language and soon had me up and running. We also had fun! If you need some online marketing training (SEO, Google AdWords, email marketing, etc.), definitely give Heather a call – she knows her stuff!”

      Andi Lonnen, Finance Trainer, Andi Lonnen Business Associates

      “I recently attended an Email Marketing course which Heather ran. The content was well delivered and perfect for my business. I would highly recommend Heather to any business looking for this type of training.”

      Steve Long, Independent Financial Adviser, Thomas Heald

      “Heather was a great help to my business and in one session she gave me an in-depth understanding of how to get my website a lot more noticed with SEO that I could implement myself. This saved my business a lot of money and gave me a better understanding of my platform. The session was tailored to exactly what I needed help with and was made very easy to understand. I would highly recommend Heather.”
