If you’re looking for a workshop host, guest speaker or panel member to talk about marketing fundamentals, social media trends or insights into best practices that get results, let’s talk.

What it’s like to learn with me
“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, Sales & Marketing Director, Resource
“I‘ve worked with Luan several times over the years in my (voluntary) capacity of organising and putting on various events for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. I have asked her to speak at events for members in Gloucestershire, for Members in Practice in the South West and for the Members in Practice conference.
Luan knows her subject inside out. She is able to communicate in a clear way to people of varying levels of expertise so that everyone gets something out of it. Every talk contain titbits of information – any one of which can make a difference. For me what stands out is that what she does extends well beyond the talk – she provides tips that people can apply straight away to eg make their LinkedIn profile work better.
She is an engaging speaker and always gets good feedback from delegates.
Jonathan Nicholls, Gloucestershire Chair, CIMA
“Luan delivered a workshop on the power of video in social media for our Annual event and it was brilliant. The room was packed and we had rave reviews about the session after! Right from our first conversation, to the day of delivery, Luan kept in touch and gave me confidence that she was going to deliver for our delegates. She more than delivered. Thanks Luan, hope to work with you again soon!”
Becky Brennan, Account Director Optix Solutions
“Luan delivered a fantastic LinkedIn workshop for the 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, Executive Director, International Benefits Network
“Luan has (so far!) delivered two separate and equally impressive Zoom training sessions for the FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) in the South West and both have been invaluable, insightful and very, very well received. Talking first about LinkedIn and then Twitter, Luan’s calm, friendly and very professional style went over very well indeed and she clearly knows how to pitch it (as we had asked) so that everyone from those who love their social media to complete novices felt included, informed and energised. The subsequent response and reaction to two extremely well-attended events was incredibly positive so I would have no hesitation in recommending Luan for any social media meetings/events/training. She knows her stuff, she knows how to share it and she is a very likable, credible and enthusiastic presenter.”
Sam Holliday, Development Manager (Gloucestershire and the West of England), Federation of Small Businesses
“Luan came to speak at our 10th annual marketing conference E-Virus in Vilnius to share her expertise in social media planning and engagement marketing. Her presentation was well received by Lithuanian marketers and overall co-operation with her as a speaker at our event was smooth and efficient.”
Giedrius Ciupaila, CEO, Vilnius Conference Centre
