Learn With Me

If you’re looking to improve your marketing skills, get started with social media or ensure you’re up-to-date with the latest best practice examples, you can learn with me online or as part of a small group workshop.

Whenever you’re learning or working with me, you’re in safe hands. I am a Fellow grade member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (FCIM), have achieved and maintained Chartered Marketer status each year since 2012. This means I have made a commitment to keep my professional skills up-to-date and that I comply with a professional code of conduct.

I am a course instructor for LinkedIn’s online learning platform, an accredited trainer for Facebook and Instagram (as part of their #shemeansbusiness campaign) and a coach for Google’s Digital Garage initiative. I have run workshops for the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the Chartered Institute of Management Accounts (CIMA), the Chartered Institute of Personnel andDevelopment (CIPD), the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) as well as in-house courses for universities and colleges.

Want to know more about me? Go here.

Everything I share within a workshop is grounded in theory as well as practical experience, continued learning (I’m an avid reader and information junkie) and from knowledge gained by speaking to hundreds of business professionals. I’m a practitioner that likes to talk, not a lecturing academic.

Every session is interactive – I listen as much as I talk, and manage the session to ensure that everyone leaves with action points to help them achieve their objectives (we always finish on time too).

Each month I host a free webinar for IPSE, the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed.

Client feedback:

Luan’s courses are fun and easy to digest. She manages to explain things so clearly and in plain language that everyone of all ages can understand the issues. You come out ‘getting it’. Rebecca Harding, Vice-Chair CIM Midlands

Luan delivered a fantastic LinkedIn workshop for International Benefits Network. She hit just the right note: making the subject simple enough for beginners and also giving plenty of insights for the more experienced social media users in the group. Feedback from our consultants was really positive – everyone got something from Luan’s workshop. Sally Hart

As the Seminar Executive for the Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce, I asked Luan to deliver a 1 hour seminar on social media, aimed at Chamber members and other local business. These are 1 hour sessions of useful advice for businesses. Luan delivered a significant amount of information in this hour, helping attendees focus their time when using social media. It was clear, interactive, and contained many suggestions for useful tools. I would be happy to recommend Luan and hope to work with her again in the future. Thanks! Tracey Adams

Luan Wise has been a speaker at Moda UK on more than one occasion, talking to our audience of fashion retailers. Luan is a brilliant speaker who can keep an audience completely engaged. She has a natural way of speaking to the audience whilst still being clear and concise. Her marketing knowledge shines through and the audience members always go away with some useful hints and tips to make the most of their marketing. Nicole Yates

I first made contact with Luan via a LinkedIn post.  In fact, I was so impressed by the blog, I asked Luan to deliver a session at one of our CommsHero events.  Since then Luan has been involved as a speaker at further events and will be invited to future sessions.  The feedback we’ve had from delegates was always very positive “great insight in to the marketing world”, “pitched perfectly for the target audience”, “we came away buzzing with lots of great ideas we will use in our organisation”.Asif Choudry

We first asked Luan to provide LinkedIn training as part of a personal development programme. Luan completed personalised LinkedIn profile audits, ran a webinar for team members to hear top tips and ask questions, all complementing her detailed ‘Getting Started with LinkedIn’ e-learning course. We have since asked Luan to support our business development team, again with personalised profile audits, webinars and the advanced ‘Getting Results from LinkedIn’ e-learning course. Luan is easy to work with and the courses have been highly praised by everyone who has taken them. Jess Putt, Marketing Manager, British Gas Business

We asked Luan to help our scientists get the most from LinkedIn. She worked methodically to establish what was needed and deliver this through benchmarking, a face-to-face workshop and a series of e-modules targeted at individuals needs. As a result we saw our LinkedIn presence grow dramatically with a doubling in traffic from LinkedIn to our website. This just wouldn’t have happened without Luan as the catalyst. Leighton Jones, Head of Marketing & Communications, Campden BRI Group
