1st Ben Beavers
“The great Henry Ford once said that: “Obstacles are those frightful things you can see when you take your eyes off your goal.”
Having met and brainstormed with John Coupland at the “Social Media Week London” seminars, I now classify him as a modern day Henry Ford. He is a naturally gifted problem solver and brilliantly forward thinking social media tactician. It’s no wonder he is the award winning e-business expert that businesses are lining up to work with.
If you have the opportunity to go to one of his training seminars or just have a friendly chat, you will very quickly realize why John stands out from the crowd. He helps you overcome your online obstacles and keeps you focused on your end goals.” March 9, 2012
1st Mark Hughes, Social Media Marketing, Funky Social Media
Rugby School Careers Convention
“Dear Mr Coupland,
I would just like to say, a very big thank you for your support in speaking at the Careers Convention.
The day was a huge success, we have had some fantastic feedback from attending pupils who very much appreciate the opportunity and the time you have given.
Please see below one comment that has been received from a pupil:
“I now know what I want to do and how to go about achieving it”.
Very many thanks again,
Mrs Harry Higgins
Rugby School Careers Department”

Testimonials due, however these were the organisers:
Association of Interior Specialists (AIS) AGM

1st David Frise
‘Social Media SMART”, FSB’s “We Mean Business”
“I attended the mini-SMART Workshop at the We Mean Business Event in Croydon: The content was enlightening and the format of the workshop brilliant, with interactive sessions, videos and lively and supportive group discussions.
Topics were only briefly covered in the mini-session, but I’ve taken away and used ideas already. Hungry for more, I will be taking up the full workshop offer: to learn how to focus my new media strategy to get the best use of it in the very little time each day brings!”November 8, 2011
1st Elspeth Lucy Holmes FCA, Business Improvement Specialist, Pro-actions LLP
‘The Sales Roadshow’ Seminars
“John is quite character-resourceful, creative and aware. He’s been hugely supportive in the time that we’ve worked together on the Sales Roadshow and I very much appreciate this.
1st Louisa Felstead, Owner, Facilitator
“I’ve seen John present twice now, and each time his presentations (on different subjects) have been highly motivational and entertaining. John not only knows his “stuff” but engages with his audience to ensure that not only does he get his message across, but that he also pitches his message appropriately. There are Social Media Experts. But then there is John!” July 2, 2011
1st Andy Snook | Performance Evaluator & Mentor, Director, Performance Evaluations Limited
“I was privileged to meet John at a Sales Roadshow event earlier in the year, where he was presenting. John’s knowledge and passion for social media together with his approachable nature, makes him someone you need and want to know. Since then we have met and spoken many times. Johns understanding of how best to get social media working for your business is invaluable – I am going to be getting John involved in a new venture I have planned – as I know this will be a key ingredient crucial to making it a success.” July 5, 2011
Top qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Creative
1st Debbie Hunt << Debbie Hunt, Lexus Hatfield, has since become one of our clients for social media marketing.
“Mobile, Social Media and Business Now!”

Western ideas of mobile lag many years behind Singapore and Japan, so John’s perspective is of great value to advertisers seeking new ways of engaging in the mobile revolution.” December 11, 2011
