Meet the speakers!

We are delighted that we have three local entrepreneurs speaking at our event this month.  

Ella Stearn - Blue Monkey Social Media and The Lucky Truth

Ella has always loved all things entrepreneurial. At the age of 14 she was earning additional income for herself from a dance tuition business, at the age of 17 she left her secure job at a start-up company to set up her first business alongside traveling.  Now, she earns a living doing the things she's most passionate about- running BlueMonkey Social Media, alongside her Travel, Entrepreneur, Lifestyle blog- The Lucky Truth.

With over 47,000 followers on her personal twitter accounts, over 3,400 UK connections on her professional network on Linkedin and 400 endorsements in Event Management, Social Media & Marketing- Ella knows better than anyone how to effectively use social media for business.

She's successfully created her own social media strategies that now generate all of her business enquiries and sales - saying goodbye to cold-calling and hello to an effective social media marketing sales funnel! 

Ella now applies the same priciples when working with clients; adapting them slightly for the best possible results that hit all their personal objectives!
