I'll definitely take part in 1 of her courses in the near future!
  • WOW! What can I say about Isla apart from I cannot recommend her and sing her praises highly enough! I was particularly impressed with Isla’s knowledge and experience and this shines through every minute she is speaking. Isla is very innovative and very creative and value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending her- in fact I already have recommended her to several people!
  • I had a Business Model generation session with Isla - very valuable and insightful. Isla provides great advice and helped me to create a model which will generate results much quicker than we would have otherwise. I'd recommend her without hesitation to any business that wants better results.
