A selection of quotes from 'happy campers'...
"I walked in knowing nothing, and left with a myriad of ideas..."
"I really enjoyed your workshop. I've been to so many events where I've been left 'wanting' something more I could get my teeth into'. Your workshop gave me that extra something. It's all well and good to have all these different 'social media' tools but without anything to say they are just tools. The most important things I gained from your session was a surge of confidence and a kind of 'permission' to give blogging a go. We had been considering buying someone in to blog on our behalf but today has changed my mind.
I'm sure I'll create some bloopers and it will take some time to 'craft' my own style but I'm keen to give it a go. So just to say again thank you. I walked in with a blank piece of paper and walked out with a myriad of ideas."

Thank you for your help...
A year ago I attended one of your workshops on creative copywriting and I'm pleased to report it has made a big difference to my writing...
For example, since attending your course:
- I have been elected by my peers to be North of England Congress representative at the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply. This was purely on the basis of a 500 word campaign statement.
- Innovia has been shortlisted in the CIPS Annual Awards for Best Contribution to Corporate responsibility. This was determined by 3 page submission which had to; grab the attention of the judges, tell a story and sell the project.
I'm really pleased I attended!

"I've come away with a greater confidence in my ability to write"
"I spent yesterday afternoon in the company of Jackie Harris and 6 other (like me) small business owners trying to learn the basics of "Writing to Sell". Jackie made it fun, interesting and interactive and I've come away with a greater confidence in my ability to write sales copy. Some excellent sounding tips and downloadable slides and more advice after the event. Thanks Jackie. Wish me luck!"
Clare (Growing Singing, Kendal)
What a truly inspiring course!
"Surrounded by a group of lovely, strong women, the course empowered me to start writing from the heart. I know I need to tone that back a bit for business, but it gives me an excellent place to start from."

New ideas I'd never thought about before
"Jackie’s courses are brilliant. I leave with so much food for thought, giving me new ideas about how to portray myself and my business in ways I’d not previously thought about. Informative, friendly and fun, but never daunting. Thoroughly recommend."

"...she is full of ideas, so you come away inspired with enthusiasm..."
"Training sessions with Jackie are interesting, fun, and, most of all, informative. There are two good things about her workshops – one, she knows her stuff, so she tells you, clearly, the important things you need to know; and, two, she is full of ideas, so you come away inspired with enthusiasm to put her ideas and tips into action."

A marketing consultant that really delivers...
"Immediately after the articles you wrote for me appeared in the Law Society Gazette and Solicitor's Journal I had a new client and several new leads. My past experience of marketing consultants has been that they just 'talk the talk', but that's certainly not the case with you. You deliver."

"She took a complicated brief and made it look easy - a sure sign of talent."
“Jackie and I have worked together on a number of projects and her copywriting work is outstanding. I have found her to be trustworthy and friendly, as well as great with customers. And she always keeps me in the loop so I know what's happening. Our latest joint client is thrilled to bits with the copy Jackie has created for their property development brochure. She took a complicated brief and made it look easy - the sure sign of a talented individual. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jackie for copywriting and PR work.”
