More on the “Armchair Marketing” series of teleclasses:

These teleclasses are named “Armchair Marketing” for two reasons. Firstly because you can participate from the comfort of your own home, from your own armchair if you would like! Also “Armchair Marketing” reflects the idea that what we will cover is going to be easy and straightforward. Mostly activities you can complete from the comfort of your own armchairs. Marketing should be fun, not boring, hard work or scary!

Angela’s background is in sales and marketing and she is a qualified marketing consultant, having run corporate sales and marketing training programmes for ten years before focusing her efforts on coaching. She has a wealth of experience and expertise and is very happy to share it.

What other people have said about the “Armchair Marketing” workshops:

“I arrived feeling rather lethargic and wondering if I was wasting my afternoon by doing a marketing workshop, as I had already done some marketing training before. My head is now buzzing with ideas and I can’t wait to get back to work and get started on some articles,& press releases. Fantastic workshop!”

Angie South,

“An enjoyable seminar that leaves me bursting with ideas. Packed with information and top tips, I think there has been more in half a day than some people do in two!”

Janet Dowling,

“Action packed; supremely practical; convincingly credible and fantastic value for money. I can’t wait for more!”

Jean Ramsey,

Network for Coaches

When I first set out as an independent coach and trainer 13 years ago, I quickly realised that although this was a 'people focused' career, it didn't always satisfy my own needs to interact with like-minded peers whom I could share ideas, experiences and know-how. 

Being an independent coach can also be lonely!

If you'd like to interact with other coaches across the UK and worldwide, please contact me at for more information.
