What our clients say


Hugh Thornbery

CEO, Adoption UK 

“Zoe and her colleague Madeleine helped us take our first steps in the digital transformation process. They covered a huge amount of ground during the project, helping us develop a digital vision and roadmap, auditing the digital skills of staff and volunteers and advising on digital service delivery and how it is changing our business model. We were very happy with their work and the way in which they encouraged us to be bold and ambitious yet pragmatic. They were extremely thorough in their approach, and we really liked their enthusiasm and energy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for their expertise and the value they add.”


Sally Horrox

Director of Corporate Communications and Marketing, NCT

“I worked with Zoe recently at NCT and found her professional, collaborative and personally inspiring to work with. She has a very structured approach, which worked well for the different levels of experience within our team, and helped us develop a digital strategy focusing on social media and online engagement.”


Claire Douglas

Social Media Manager, Commonwealth War Graves Commission

“Zoe and her team provided us with fantastic levels of support throughout the process and remained approachable and available at all stages.

We are a very small team – but with big plans – and Zoe’s support really gave us the confidence we needed to take our social media to the next level.

The strategy and goals we produced together were ambitious, yet realistic, and have provided a solid base to work from over the next 12 months.”


Judith Davey

Director of People, Performance and Accountability at ActionAid

Zoe’s report on the different approaches to transparency in not-for-profit, public and regulated private sectors is insightful and thought-provoking. We loved the creative and challenging discussions we had with Zoe about improving the way in which we present our transparency information and the ambitious, but very practical recommendations. I have no hesitation in recommending Zoe as an expert in charity comms and marketing.”


Heather Broughton

Head of Communciations, Crimestoppers

“Zoe worked with Crimestoppers to evaluate and audit our social media strategy which we developed in-house. After a few email exchanges and phone calls plus a face to face meeting, Zoe embraced our brief and provided a comprehensive report from which we can take many lessons to enhance our social media presence at Crimestoppers. Zoe was very easy to work with and provided a host of practical knowledge, expertise and advice of which has already been of huge benefit.”


James Higgott

Head of Digital, The King’s Fund

“Zoe Amar did a fantastic job reviewing our social media channels and suggesting ways to develop/improve our social presence. She ran effective workshops that engaged staff, her analysis and benchmarking work was thorough and insightful, and her recommendations were thoughtful and sensible.”


Jack Garfinkel

Web Production Manager, NCVO

“It was an absolute treat to work with Zoe on our communications content on Knowhow Nonprofit. She showed us how to map content and audit our vast website in a way that would really help users. She also helped us to be the best version of ourselves, both by being very efficient and by being an extremely calming influence. Really hoping our paths cross again soon.”


Mandy Johnson

UK Director of Partnerships at Change.org

“I attended Zoe’s course whilst I was on maternity leave as I was worried that my personal brand would be forgotten whilst I was away from work. Without trying to be melodramatic, it changed my life. Zoe’s skills as a teacher and her expertise in her field gave me the confidence, knowledge and direction to start blogging, tweeting more confidently and generally putting myself out there in the online space. A year later, I have increased my Twitter following by over 1,000 people, been selected as the 14th most influential fundraiser in the UK and I still go back to my notes from Zoe’s course almost every day.”


Rachel Purkett

Head of Digital and Member Engagement, The Royal College of Nursing

“Zoe prepared and delivered a useful and inspiring session for my team. She really listened to and understood what we needed and was a joy to work with.”


Lizzie Carter

New Business Manager at CLIC Sargent

“Zoe ran a fantastic training session for the team at CLIC Sargent. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, creating a session which responded directly to the specific brief we provided and using practical examples throughout to bring it to life. The team found Zoe’s friendly and considerate style really engaging and we’ve all gone away feeling inspired and motivated to put what we learnt into practice. Thank you, Zoe!”


Harvey Gallagher

CEO, The National Association of Fostering Providers

“After her initial work to support my organisation’s stakeholders with their own social media strategies, I have engaged with Zoe to develop our own presence and mine as a CEO. In my one-to-one meetings with Zoe, I come away each time feeling my approach has been further crafted and given momentum – her sound advice and pragmatic approach is much appreciated.”


Andrew Brady

Head of Charities and Social Enterprise, Anglia Ruskin University

“I was delighted when Zoe agreed to work with Anglia Ruskin University, as lead tutor on our Social Media module. She is a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and professional, and our students (social enterprise and charity managers) have given her great feedback. Zoe has also presented workshops at our annual conference and these have been similarly well received. If you want the social media/third sector job done then I recommend you talk to her, right now!”


Liz Sewell

Director, Belina Consulting

“It was so useful and inspiring to work with Zoe. She helped us to clarify both our brand and our message. We now understand exactly how to promote our services and who we need to get to. I would recommend her as both very good at her job and value for money.”
