Story

Social Media made easy for business owners
Introduction

My name is Nicky Kriel and I am passionate about empowering, inspiring and educating company owners and managers to use Social Media to grow their businesses. I uses my background in corporate marketing to help companies integrate social media into their own marketing strategies. As a Master NLP Practitioner, communicating is my strength, teaching people to engage with the ‘social’ aspect of social networking; it’s not all about tools and technology, but about people and relationships.

 

Based in Guildford, I work with businesses ranging from solopreneurs to multinationals, helping them build and develop relevant social media strategies. I offer bespoke in-house training as well as running a number of public courses on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and, as a self-confessed technophobe, jargon is minimal, with practical advice and guidance being the focus.

 

I have published a book,  “How to Twitter for Business Success” with a series of further titles planned, and runs online courses and webinars on social media.

 

I was born and raised in South Africa, but have made the UK my home and has lived in Surrey for over 20 years. 

I have 3 lovely children too.

Bragging rights
People are taking pictures of my book "How to Twitter for Business Success" around the world and in unusual places.
