Elaine Simons has worked with us over a number of years in a role combining the development of relationships with existing and potential customers with the marketing, organisation and running of regular seminars in the University.
Elaine’s work for us has consistently been of the highest standard; she has always been totally reliable and professional in all she has done. Indeed, throughout all her work for us she has shown a commitment to the University’s aspirations at as high a level as could be found amongst staff in our permanent employment.
I am pleased to recommend Elaine to you.

I have attended both the introduction to Marketing courses and the Advanced Marketing courses provided by the WEI and presented by Elaine Simons.
As someone who did not know a lot about marketing, but knew it was an important part of running a business, I was very interested in attending these courses to not only learn about marketing but how it could develop my business. The courses were very comprehensive and the materials that we were given about different aspects of marketing have been invaluable to me and I have often looked back at them for ideas and to deepen my understanding. We also had the opportunity to in both courses to seek advice from not only Elaine, but guest speakers and other businesswomen on the course. This meant that we could have personalised advice tailored to our individual business needs. As with many aspects of the WEI, meeting other businesswomen on these courses built my self confidence, presented networking opportunities and a support group which is so important when many women are in business alone.
As a result, I have used this knowledge and experiences from the courses to analyse my business; it’s services and identify differnt ways of operating. I understand many aspects that I previously didn’t and have made modifications to the way my business operates and the services I provide. This has meant that I have increased sales and income. I also have the marketing knowledge and tools to continue to do so in the future.
The WEI and Elaine Simons have gone the extra mile for many of the reasons that I have mentioned. Workshops I have attended elsewhere give general advice, but the combination of theory, personalised advice, shared experiences and outstanding support, means the WEI have empowered many of the women on these courses. They have not only become better businesswomen as a result but more successful.
