“Dear Kylie,
I want to thank you for such a fabulous seminar – Social Media for Money. What I liked best about it was the 5 different speakers that united on the fundamentals that all businesses need. It reminded me of the strength of five fingers – a helping hand, and how they all support a solid platform.
Loved it, would definitely go again. Julie”
