Why I’m running this Boost Your Twitter workshop

I know how daunting social media can seem. I’d never even tried Twitter when I set up my first account. But I’ve discovered it’s a really powerful way to talk to your customers, support your local area and keep up-to-date with what’s happening in your industry.

I’ve run Twitter training courses for lots of people, including National Park Rangers in a barn with no internet. In comparison the York Medical Society will be a delight! I can’t wait to help you get the most out of this amazing way to communicate with the world.

My background

Brought up near Scarborough, I studied English at Cambridge University before going into web publishing. I worked for First Choice Holidays in Gatwick on their e-commerce websites. For eleven years I was the Lake District National Park’s Web Editor managing Twitter accounts, Facebook accounts and 1.6 million website visitors.

What I do now

I help businesses increase their profits through fresh words as a freelance copywriter. I write Google-friendly web content. I also run the Ink Gardener round where I manage social media accounts and web content on behalf of companies and organisations.
