I recently had the pleasure of using Val’s “Bounce Back to Business” programme, it was fabulous!! Val is knowledgeable, perceptive, and full of useful suggestions. She’s genuinely interested in helping other businesses and does a brilliant and very professional job. Happy to recommend her service 100%.

“Since I first met Val she has gone out of her way to help and support me in building awareness of The Blind Woodturner. Val has been extremely generous with her time and has secured a variety of press, radio and public speaking opportunities for me. I am extremely grateful to Val for sharing my story and for being such an advocate for what I am doing. Her dedication has made a huge difference and has been instrumental in helping me achieve my goal to inspire and motivate others.”

“I attended a Digital Marketing workshop run by Val. Really enjoyed it and learnt a huge amount in a short space of time. Highly recommend it to anyone who wants to quickly get up to speed on the subject.”

I 100% recommend Val’s social media & marketing training. I attended a 1 day course & really felt that Val was genuinely interested in helping me to successfully promote my business and she ensured that I got the most out of the training. I love her informal yet professional style of teaching & demonstrating. She was happy to answer points raised by those on the course and made our learning fun & interactive. Excellent value for money too!
“I have known Val for many years now, first meeting her at Tameside Business Awards. I have benefited from her knowledge and expertise within the marketing and social media field. This has helped grow our company and enter in the media world. Val has a wealth of knowledge within marketing, websites, social media and branding, this is proven with her many awards, honours and accolades along the way. Val works very hard to help others, and supports local businesses with her experience. This is by a hands-on approach, coaching and mentoring. Val is a very inspiring, motivating leader who sees the best in people and helps them grow, I would have no hesitation in recommending Val for any business large or small. Val truly “Makes things Happen”. Thank you Val.”

“I would recommend Val to anyone wanting to discuss on line presence, social media etc. I had a recent 121 with Val and found her to be one of the most genuine people I have met, extremely good at explaining things and making you feel at ease discussing subjects you know little about. It is obvious that she has a vast amount of knowledge and experience and I only wish I had found her sooner!”
“Defero have been superb. From initial idea to execution they’ve been completely responsive in helping to deliver a superb service to clients with maximum impact and minimum fuss.”
“Val’s impressive professional record speaks for itself, so many awards and nominations for good reason too. However, the purpose of this recommendation is based upon the personal support that has offered to my clients and me through mentoring; Being a voluntary mentor demonstrates incredible values. She has given her time to those in business who need it most, start-up and scale-up business owners who need a helping hand from a marketing and PR expert. Feedback from my clients is that her guidance and support is consistently fantastic. On a personal level, above all Val is someone I am proud to call a friend. She listens with care and truly understands the complex challenges that most people face and remains positive throughout, this is why I call her inspirational. I heartily recommend Val as marketing professional, mentor, consultant and above a great friend. Thanks Val.”
