Client Testimonials

During the last 10 years, I have implemented many Digital Marketing strategies trying to leverage from social media with very little success. During this time I paid a fortune to so called ‘social media experts’ and even fired two well established advertising agencies for non delivery in this space. This all changed when I reconnected with Retha last year. When she worked for me in the early 90’s it was long before social media existed, but she was top of her game then, so I gave her a chance to facilitate a ‘Digital Marketing Strategy’ for Stratham Bryce. The results were mind blowing. I have never worked with anyone who had such a practical and effective grasp of the topic and at the end of our 1 day workshop, we knew exactly what to do, and which mediums were appropriate for our business. Her follow-on workshop on refining our Linked-in profiles was equally impressive and effective. In my opinion, she is unique in this arena and I would put my personal reputation as well as the reputation of my company (Stratham Bryce) behind Retha. This sentiment is echoed by my colleagues who are all ex CEO’s, COOs or CSMOs of listed companies. My heartfelt thanks goes out to Retha for providing excellence in a field that most executives grapple in.

Noel Studti – Stratham Bryce International

Retha’s expertise and experience is demonstrated by her superb ability to achieve the desired results in a simple and uncomplicated manner.

Her creativity and very clear vision of what the client intends are accompanied by uncomparable service levels of the highest excellence.

The monetary cost involved in creating my LinkedIn profile is minimal compared to the subsequent value it has and continues to deliver.

If you do not have a professional LinkedIn profile, what are you waiting for?!

Fleur Lerwill – Education Consultant

Retha has an incredible ability to create sense out the of complexity that is social media. And she does it in a way that’s not only informative, but light-hearted and entertaining as well.

It’s clear that Retha has in-depth knowledge of her subject which she shares willingly, patiently and in a language that’s easy to understand.

Whenever I’ve suggested Retha’s workshops to clients, the feedback has been glowing. Highly recommended.

Who to connect to on LinkedIn

There are many LinkedIn users who treat LinkedIn connections in the same way as Twitter followers.. the more the merrier. LinkedIn was intended to connect those who know, trust and recommend each other. If you connect to everyone who asks, whether you know them or not, you are watering down the network for yourself and everyone you are connected to. Think of LinkedIn connections as people who you know and trust, people who know what you do and how your…

Why is LinkedIn so important?

I am often asked why a profile on LinkedIn is so important if you are not looking for a job or trying to impress your boss?

While it’s probably important in those circumstances too, you will find that every savvy business person who have a scheduled meeting with you would have looked at your LinkedIn profile before the meeting! Or when you send an email to someone, or give them a business card…

Success with Social Media in a small business

When I first met Joanne* and she heard what I did for a living, her first words were: “I’d love to learn how to use social media for my business, but where must I find time for it in my schedule?”. Largely due to popular belief and some stories about addiction in the media, many now believe that social media takes too much of your time to get involved in it at all.
