Tracy has contributed more to the development of social media and content strategy in UK Higher Education than any other individual. Having heard her speak over a dozen times, she commands an exhaustive supply of examples from across public and private sector best practice and brings to life the challenges and opportunities that working with rich, dynamic content can bring to engaging audiences from all walks of life. She is a unique speaker: full of punch, charm and insight, but accessible, thought provoking and utterly relevant.

Tracy has that incredible talent of making social media accessible, exciting and useful for all. And I don’t say that lightly. She does not dumb down or patronise ‘beginners’ or over complicate to impress as an ‘expert’; instead she explains while inspiring, and asks questions while answering them, provides insight with a passion for others’ vision and always gives you ‘stuff’ to take home and try immediately. Its a rare combination. Highly recommended.

Tracy is an outstanding speaker - informative, funny, warm. Seeing her name on a conference schedule should bring a smile to any attendee’s face, as they know they are in for both an educational and entertaining presentation.
