Iona Elwood-Smith - Grow My Business

Hi, I’m Iona Elwood-Smith and love all things to do with websites. As a person who can’t work her phone my family find this hilarious.

My background is in strategy and business development and I fundamentally believe everyone should be online for their business to grow, which is why I created Grow My Business.

Kat Soper - The Helpful Brand

Hi, I’m Kat Soper, founder of The Helpful Brand and The Helpful Academy.
As a business strategist, I’m not interested in helping you just create a “pretty” website. My main priority is helping you create a website which will attract your ideal customer, and inspire them to take the action(s) you want them to take.
I see your website as part of your overall marketing machine. It plays such an important part in your business, which is why it’s worth getting right.
I’ve known Iona for several years, and there’s noone I’d rather have worked with to bring you this awesome course.
More than getting you online, this course is about giving your business the best possible start.
