Anthony McCormack

Anthony McCormack – Macstaff

“I've made it my mission to attend seminars by Julia @ Green Umbrella whenever I can, such as Recruitment Expo and TEAM conference, plus specific training courses. She is a true SME on social media and marketing for the recruitment industry. As a speaker she is funny, relevant, high-pace and can cater to all levels. Plus she knows this stuff, hands-on, hands-down and really ‘walks the walk'. So, hugely valuable, very enjoyable, highly reccomended! :)” Anthony McCormack, Managing Director, Macstaff

Leanne Davidson-Town

Leanne Davidson-Town – Forterra

I worked with Emily whilst at Forterra. She was responsible for managing our Facebook account. This meant she needed to be active with creating posts, idea generating and being reactive to comments and messages but she was also absolutely fantastic at keeping Forterra updated with anything that needed our attention as well as daily and weekly reporting. Emily is very professional, pays attention to detail, great at customer service and support and it was a pleasure to work with her. I hope to work with her again in the future.

Phil Salton

Phil Salton – Solid Recruitment Solutions

We undertook a website review with Julia. Just love Julia's no-nonsense, no waffle, straightforward approach which was exactly what we needed.

She had conducted research and was very prepared before the review meeting. She took time to ensure all our questions were answered and didn't mind jumping from topic to topic. We came away with loads of constructive feedback and a big todo list. Thank you, Julia.

I have been working with Pam of Green Umbrella now for some time for social media coaching. I find her coaching sessions excellent motivational and extremely helpful.

If you are looking for someone to take a no nonsense no tech language approach to support you and your business through the minefield of social media then Pam is absolutely without hesitation your person.

Christina took the ITI team through LinkedIn startup training and opened our eyes to the possibilities that this platform holds for us. Her practical knowledge and insights will help us to stick to the important bits and prevent us from being seduced by time wasting and costly dead ends. The proof is always in the results we start to produce and I am confident that having a checklist to work through will give us the edge we are looking for. Thanks Christina.
