I have loved using the Business Skills Studio membership site. Specifically I have downloaded the templates, enlarged them and they serve as an excellent visual to help me plan in my business.
In addition I have used the ‘Preparing to Negotiate‘. This helped me in a very difficult meeting and I managed to be much clearer about the issues that needed resolving. This has had a direct positive financial impact on my business.
I have implemented the Linked In tips given in the recorded Mini Mastermind interview with Jill Chitty and as a result I have more views on my profile and more connections.
Additionally, I have saved the tips from Kim O’Rourke’s interview on e-newsletters and I will be implementing those very soon.

This year’s Growing Gloucestershire Conference held on 7th July 2015 at the Growth Hub and University of Gloucestershire, was a year of celebration for the conference with it being the 10th anniversary. As Chair of the conference, the opening speaker had to be someone special this year and with her dedicated connection to the conference since its conception, who better than Miranda. She was the obvious choice for me.
Her insightful and poignant presentation not only left the audience with a sense of remembrance , it set the scene for continuous recognition of great business and excellent professionalism in our county. It was entertaining, yet respectful and both impactful and a delight to attend.
Thank you Miranda and certainly one of my easier decisions as Chair.

Miranda, just wanted to say thanks for the superb webinar for The 10 Week Start-up programme. As an existing business looking to update my offering I found the focus, with the Power Start Plan and the Massive Marketing Mystery solutions, invaluable in helping me begin to make some big changes. The 10 Week Start-up is for more than just new ventures – Thank You!

Miranda’s support and mentorship of Equart’s project to build assistive technology for blind performers has been fantastic.
She has introduced me to key people, and at her suggestion I attended her Business growth group ‘Adeptio’ which, helped build my business skills and form helpful strategies and plans for the future.
Miranda’s carefully thought out business seminars don’t just skim the surface of the challenges that face businesses today, they places depth charges to clear out the dross and mine the gold of clear intention and focussed thinking

As a small business owner, my business has taken many twists and turns.
Recently I have wanted to engage with producing and posting online tutorials and webinars and admit to having struggled with the technology for a while which has held back my productivity.
I then connected with Miranda at Business Skills Studio and had a couple of sessions, learning the ‘how to’ and more importantly ‘the what not to’ with recording for social media.
Miranda was incredibly patient and has a natural ability to create a fun and relaxed learning environment. I came away feeling energized and confident to be able to use the new social media technologies to promote my new products.
Huge thanks Miranda

You are without question the person I will turn to (and highly recommend) in the future for advice and business mentoring. It’s great to find an approachable experienced mentor who is committed to understanding the specific needs of an individual business and is dedicated to supporting both new smaller business as well as the larger established business.

This year Miranda has been an invaluable sounding board and accountability partner as I have sought to iron out the creases in my digital marketing. She has been a real encouragement and has a very sound grasp of digital marketing. There have been times when it was tempting to give up getting my online programmes completed but Miranda’s cheery approach won me over every time. She’s a real asset to any business.
Jill Chitty, Marketing Coach and Business Mentor
I met Miranda through a recommendation from a local networking group, after just a few minutes talking to Miranda and explaining my business idea she was already inspiring me and providing me with invaluable information and pointing me in the right direction. As a business mentor Miranda’s experience and motivational support was truly inspiring as I felt I lacked direction. Having helped get my business on track I will certainly be looking to invest in her courses in the near future”
