About Me

I started a business at 24 years old, got hooked on using social media to grow it, started a social media training business on the side as a hobby and…ten years later that ‘hobby’ business now means I’ve helped hundreds of businesses grow using social media!

My background is in business psychology and I definitely focus more on the psychology of social media than the technology.  It’s how we engage PEOPLE that matters.  The technology is just the means to allow us to do that!

 I work in-house with organisations, training their teams to meet business objectives, and also deliver training sessions online.  In 2020, inspired to help more small business owners achieve their dreams for their business, I founded social media training membership site Planet Social Media.  Members have access to a large library of training videos designed to help them grow their business using social media, as well as the opportunity to ask their questions, fortnightly live calls and weekly actions for them to take!

WHAT THEY THINK….

Sam delivered an incredibly engaging seminar on Social Media for a group of officers from Town/Parish Councils in Cheshire, including four members of my team. Working with Sam to plan the content was easy and she delivered a fantastic day. My staff were enthused by the content and came back with plenty of ideas to put into practice. I had numerous other e-mails praising Sam’s course from the other councils which attended.

Sam has a wealth of knowledge in the rapidly changing world of Social Media. She helped me dramatically increase my presence online which has directly led to a number high level engagements in my field that may well not have happened otherwise. She helped break down that fear factor of what to do and say and enlightened us to how powerful the world of social media can be if used in the right way. Thanks Sam and would recommend her services if you are looking to maximize the world of social media for your business
