About Me

With a background in Business Psychology, my businesses include running employee engagement surveys for organisations, improving digital culture and delivering social media training.

Social media training has formed the main part of my business activity for over 12 years.  I work with organisations of all sizes to improve their social media marketing and help them understand how to maximise it for their organisation.

I am passionate in helping businesses create a positive digital culture.  In this ‘always on’ world, it’s really important that we understand the importance of switch off and avoiding digital burnout.  Managing digital solutions within businesses is so important for both employee productivity and for their wellbeing.

I also help individuals manage their personal smartphone use, to gain back time, sleep, focus and to improve their mental health.

I have spoken worldwide, including at Prince Harry’s Sentebale foundation in Lesotho, Africa.  I love speaking to audiences about improving our digital wellbeing and about social media marketing for business.



Sam delivered an incredibly engaging seminar on Social Media for a group of officers from Town/Parish Councils in Cheshire, including four members of my team. Working with Sam to plan the content was easy and she delivered a fantastic day. My staff were enthused by the content and came back with plenty of ideas to put into practice. I had numerous other e-mails praising Sam’s course from the other councils which attended.

Sam has a wealth of knowledge in the rapidly changing world of Social Media. She helped me dramatically increase my presence online which has directly led to a number high level engagements in my field that may well not have happened otherwise. She helped break down that fear factor of what to do and say and enlightened us to how powerful the world of social media can be if used in the right way. Thanks Sam and would recommend her services if you are looking to maximize the world of social media for your business

One of the questions I get asked often is 'how do I pass on good screen habits to my children?'. The reality is, our children learn from our habits. If they see us with a phone in front of our face all the time, it becomes the norm for them. The other downside of...
