Business Development

Whilst we enjoy working with our clients to help them grow their business by using our business development services, some companies prefer to do this in house but need assistance in developing the team’s skills.

I first met Karen Cureton when a business coach recommended her to help me with gaps in my social medial. We later connected again at a number of social and networking events. She really seems to know everyone. I approached Karen to give me an overview of my social media and help me put together a social media strategy. I’ve been very good at posting nice pictures but she’s very much helping me to understand how to maximise the conversion from social media engagement to paying clients. In the couple of hours we spent together she helped me to understand the best way to use social media to connect with people. How to make the most of the different social media platforms and what the benefits of them are. I now understand the point of hashtags and realise there’s no benefit in spreading myself too thin. Karen was friendly, professional, incisive and gave me top quality information that has already seen a big increase in reach despite the changes in the Facebook algorithms. I felt like i was having a cuppa with a friend but very quickly learned a great deal. After our meeting she sent me a document summarising our conversation and with a number of useful apps suggested. I loved working with Karen and I’m seriously considering whether to engage her to take over my social media entirely. I’d recommend Karen’s services to any business owner, however large or small and however great they think their social media is. She’s an expert in customer service as well as social media and goes the extra mile to understand the needs of your business. I guarantee she will have something positive to add.

Karen has been a valuable asset to the growth of the presence of Smith Partnership online using Social Media. She has worked hard and has been able to make a real change to the way we do business. I would not hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone looking to develop their network.

Karen delivered excellent training on Social Media to the YMCA Senior Management team. She was well prepared, very detailed and gave a great overview of Linkedln. The staff found Karen’s style and approach was just right for their learning. I would highly recommend Karen.

Karen has delivered social media workshops at our Innovation Centres across North Notts and they have been very well received – Karen has the knack of getting her audience’s attention, the workshops are interactive, thorough and fun! We have all taken a great deal from these session – thank you Karen, you really are a Social Media Ninja!

David Smith

Business Incubation Director, Business Innovation

I attended a Cureton Consulting Social Media workshop recently and wanted to formally feedback how useful the session was. Having been on similar courses previously I must admit I was a little sceptical as social media is something we are all familiar with. However, Karen’s excellent delivery style and passion for her subject, combined with a strong sales director background, meant that this far surpassed my expectations as it focussed on strategy as opposed to merely what social media is. The training would be useful for everyone from social media novices all the way through to marketing professionals and I would highly recommend Karen if anyone is after some social media training for themselves, their employees or their clients.

I first met Karen at a networking event. Since then I have attended some of Karen’s presentations and I have found these extremely useful. Not only is Karen extremely knowledgeable but she also puts the information across in a simple and straightforward way so that those who are not social media savvy can understand.

At the last presentation I attended, Karen provided the group with lots of great ideas. Like most people I went home with a ‘to do list’ however I didn’t know where to start. So I called Karen and she showed me how to work with Linked In.

Karen made the process straight forward, giving me homework to do with very simple step by step instructions, so that I was not overwhelmed with information. I already feel like I have more confidence in using Linked In.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone who needed any help with their Linked In profile.

I run a quirky little Sweet Shop in Ashby de la Zouch, I recently used Karen to help improve the Sales Confidence of my Part Time Staff and to boost their performance in the run up to Christmas.

After an initial meeting and some very productive secret shopping, we arranged for the girls all to have a Sales Seminar where Karen could give them advice and pointers to help build their confidence with customers …

Well they certainly came back buzzing and raring to go, with a second meeting arranged to work with them on a 1 to 1 basis in the shop for a couple of hours as a reminder to the seminar my girls have flown through Christmas with exceptional confidence and we have had the sales to prove it to.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen as both a motivator and team builder no matter how small the team…

I attended a training session recently with Karen Cureton of Cureton Consulting on becoming more skilled and knowledgeable with using Linked-In. From the outset of the training, Karen demonstrated her high level of expertise, relevancy of course content and ability to respond without breaking pace to all the myriad of questions she was asked during the course of the session. I came away with substantially more knowledge than I had before we started, and I can’t thank Karen enough for sharing some brilliant and very savvy tips for making the most of Linked-in. Very highly recommended. Thank you Karen!
