“Great session”

“Interesting and useful”

“Very knowledgeable speaker”

Lloyd’s of London course participants, Managing Distractions workshop, May 2014

“Your kind approach made it easy for me to let you into my current chaotic world overruled by social media, internet, phones, and emails.

Thank you for giving me another way to approach it. I was feeling drained by the distraction and now I feel energized that I have a plan for it. I didn’t realize how much my digital distractions were draining me until our session.”

Marta Dalton, business owner

“For a while I’ve been feeling somewhat overwhelmed by the technology cloud and constant staring at screens. Your talk was the first time that I saw a coherent way of fighting back!”

Henry Vane, City University lecture attendee

“I thoroughly enjoyed the ‘ Bringing up Children in the i-Generation’ workshop. It had a more profound impact on my own behaviour particularly around my smartphone. I am now trying to curb my smartphone use in front of my daughter.

It has had an even bigger impact on my husband, who was not at the lecture but has now read Frances Booth’s book ‘The Distraction Trap’ which I had left on the kitchen table. He now regularly forgets to take his phone when we are out having family time.

Thank you to Frances Booth and the Parent Practice team.”

“Frances is a whiz with words for the web. In two short hours she managed to take my bumbling nonsense and turn it into great copy that delivered my message and reflected my brand, all in less words then I could imagine. Don’t struggle with your sentences, get Frances to help you find the right words for your website.”

Sinead Mac Manus, 8fold

“Turning our academic English into clear, accessible prose for our website was a challenge we had baulked at, so it was a real relief to have you take over, Frances. We really appreciate the trouble you took to understand where we were coming from and what we wanted to achieve, and the process was also very helpful to us in thinking through our message and our services. We are very happy with the result – thank you very much!”

Julie Scott and Jonathan Karkut, TouchTD

“Thanks Frances. I’ve had a quick read – it looks absolutely spot on. We must get you to write some more for us.”

Mark Hodson, Snowcarbon

“You really understood what I do and actually helped bring together my work beyond just the written content. You also helped consolidate what I do and offer.”

Olivia Flaxman, Oliviaworks
