Consulting & training

‘An excellent and insightful introduction into how the media works and how I – as a tax professional – can use the media to develop profile and business.’

‘Brilliant! Lots of great tips … on how to grow my business by word-of-mouth marketing … of huge benefit to my business.’

Many thanks for the sessions you ran on Making a Pitch and Netting.  Both were incredibly useful, and as a result, I feel much better prepared to face the world of business networking and making presentations!

Just a short note to tell you how much I enjoyed today’s training. From scared to comfortable within a few hours! After that, the idea of media work is something that appeals to me.’

I just wanted to thank you both very much for yesterday morning.  You provided me with some extremely useful tools which I am looking forward to putting into practice at up and coming networking events.  I have had networking training before, but never have I been given such practical and useful advice, so thank you both for sharing your wealth of experience and knowledge on the subject.  I very much appreciated it.’

Great job today, but then again I would not have expected anything less.  Warm, friendly and informative.’

We have known Ann for a couple of years now and have found her to be an absolute inspiration. She provides a common sense analysis of business problems and issues and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. In addition, who Ann doesn’t know, isn’t worth knowing!

Ann was a tremendous support when we first set up Xentum. Our priority was to build professional connections within the North West and she provided invaluable advice for which I will be eternally grateful. Ann is warm, enthusiastic and her business acumen is spot on. She has become a true friend to our business.


Comments about the ‘Could Shipman happen again?’ documentary aired on Radio 4

I have just listened to a recording I made of your Radio 4 programme on public inquiries and wanted to congratulate you on a very interesting programme, very well presented’.’

Fabulous! I thought the programme was great…you’re a natural on radio.’

Excellent programme. Please do keep me informed about articles and progress you make, would be very interested.

Whoever said you were ‘good’ made the understatement of the year!… You were great.

I listened last night and thoroughly enjoyed the programme – thank you, for a fascinating insight into a chilling episode that, as you proved, could, if we don’t implement the recommended actions, easily happen again.’

What a fascinating programme you presented last night.  A really worthwhile listen – well done.’

I hope you had a “star rating” in terms of last night’s programme!  Well done – a very polished, succinct and thought-provoking radio documentary.’

Really excellent programme, very interesting and beautifully presented. Your voice was steady and non-aggressive and very clear.

I thought it was a beautifully constructed piece- clear and cogently argued. As a presenter, you come across very well- and every word was perfectly articulated. Congratulations on a thoroughly absorbing and gripping piece of radio.’

Comments about the ‘Public Inquiries’ documentary aired on Radio 4:

‘A fascinating programme, which raised questions on a matter that’s often kept well under wraps. Some very powerful content too.’

‘An enjoyable and informative examination of an increasingly important tool in the continuing quest for genuine public involvement. The role and conduct of Public Inquiries and implementation of their findings was explored well and the participants offered a fascinating insight from different perspectives. Well done to the BBC and Ann Alexander.’

‘A very informative and well written/presented programme. I hope that someone is able to assume the responsibility to see things through, as Ann Alexander has suggested, a form of “champion” to retain ownership of Public Enquiry findings.’
