Here’s what course graduates have to say about their coaching journey...

Leah Jewett – Director, Outspoken Sex Ed

Leah Jewett – Director, Outspoken Sex Ed

“I’m especially grateful for her insight and business acumen because I don’t have a marketing background”

“Marieanne galvanised me into thinking in a new way about marketing Outspoken Sex Ed – our social enterprise that gets parents and children talking openly about sex, bodies, consent and relationships.

Those are tricky areas but Marieanne immediately understood the nuances and complexities of our organisation’s challenges and goals, navigating us clearly and engagingly through both big ideas and the practical steps of what to target and how social media can play a part.

I’m especially grateful for her insight and business acumen because I don’t have a marketing background – which is why I was surprised to find myself having fun tackling those areas with Marieanne.”

It’s the yellow brick road and we’re now on a journey thanks to Marieanne.

“This is my first online course and it’s got me doing things that I haven’t done for years and all for the good of the charity in terms of visibility.

It hasn’t been just setting up the group, it’s actually been modifying the page, opening up to other social media outlets, it’s getting me to ask questions in the meet up groups and it is an ongoing process.

We wouldn’t have done this beforehand so it’s great in terms of building confidence and motivation to crack on. It’s the yellow brick road and we’re now on a journey thanks to Marieanne.”

This alone has been gold for me

“The main thing that I’ve got is understanding who your ideal donor is because until you have that there’s no marketing. You’ve got to have that.

The importance Marieanne puts on that, along with putting a plan into action around finding, searching for and attracting your ideal donor is really eye opening.

This alone has been gold for me.”
