When it comes to social media there cannot be anyone more knowledgeable than Ian. From the moment you decide to engage him you will find that Ian means business and has an enormous and practical knowledge that is usually hard to find. Social media is affecting all of us, and Ian is the first person I would engage if I wanted to know about making social media generate more revenue for my business, what I needed to do, and just as importantly what not to do. Combine this with his excellent communication skills, his strong IT background and the hybrid skills are unique and much in demand. If you want to score a bulls eye when taking someone on social media – look no further and talk to Ian as he ticks all the boxes.
Ian’s creation “The SuperBlog
“, and the way he explains how to use Social Networking to grow your client base to attract more business, is an incredibly effective marketing tool that has completely transformed the way I attract new clients and do business with them. It is surprisingly easy to do, and all without spending too much of my valuable time or money!
Ian gave us a highly charged and passionate presentation, which was packed to the brim with everything I needed to know in order to get myself and our communications team up to speed, and we actually implemented our social media strategy the very next day. As an IT Director myself, his delivery was non condescending, and was a lesson in itself on how I should be communicating technology to my board. I highly recommend Ian, particularly if you need to gain the necessary buy-in and commitment from other stakeholders within your organisation to implement a social media strategy.
