Laura Kean, Kean Learning and Development Ltd
Working with organisations to create bespoke learning and development events that make a real difference.
After nearly 15 years (!) in business I decided it was time to get on top of my processes and, in particular, my CRM system. Julia came highly recommended and I wasn’t disappointed. She helped talk me through using Capsule – ensuring that the product I had was bespoke to my needs, my organisation and my clients. Everything was clear, concise and completed with me in mind and one eye on the future and what I will need as my business evolves. I would highly recommend working with Julia on any Capsule-related projects.

Energising people to transform business
Julia combines technical expertise with a brilliant, positive and proactive ‘can do’ attitude. She has be integral in the growth of my business over the last two years. Before she joined us we were rather old fashioned in how we managed our client base, and thanks to Julia we do so now at the touch of a screen.

Empowering Leaders to Grow People. Energising Clients to Grow Sales.
Julia made sense of the mythical world of CRM for me with two of my businesses. She has worked with both CapsuleCRM and SharpSpring for us and in both projects made the potentially laborious process of collecting, cleaning, sorting and preparing contacts for marketing campaigns easy and painless for me ( no mean feat!) She is positive, calm and instils a genuine excitement in the value of nurturing your business contacts.
The amazing fact is that in all three of the projects, new business arose within 2 weeks! No coincidence!

“CapsuleCRM was by far the best CRM I researched, it gave me everything I needed that was lacking in my existing CRM – and I researched a lot of CRMs! I particularly liked that I could categorise my contacts, keep on top of my client and supplier relationships, manage my pipeline and keep on top of my client work – all in one package”.
Theresa Mary Anne Smith, E Learning Consultant
“So I used to train a multitude of CRM systems for a living. It burnt me the hell out.
But I truly love what CRM can do. All those things you need to remember to do in your head you can unload. Julia Blake has helped me get over myself and got me into the adorable CapsuleCRM. It’s simple but powerful. I am one week in and it’s just streamlined the hell out of my head full of noise. I love you Julia.
If you start your morning not sure what you should work on, chat to her and you’ll see how transformative it is.
You know, maybe I will become this serene chillaxed chick after all.”
“Dear Julia, I wanted to say a big thank you for your help in creating a bespoke CRM for our business. It has truly revolutionised our office and how efficiently we all work together and communicate with our customers and contacts.
Thank you for supporting us fully through the transition, calmly and patiently answering all our queries and concerns and helping us integrate the system seamlessly into our day-to-day processes and routines.
It is a fantastic system and we are excited to see how it can help us with our future marketing campaigns to help our business grow further and we look forward to working with you again!”
Andrew Roberts, General Manager, Total Recall (UK) Ltd (now at Blue Tortoise):
“Julia is very quick at working our what is needed during a briefing session, and judges the people to consult and bounce ideas off well. She has a good balance of analysis and creativity, and a thoroughness which was perfect for the role we employed her for. Julia was a strong team player and provided vital support during the team’s development.”
Victoria Lochhead, Owner and Personal Image Consultant & Stylist – Frankie & Ruby
“I’ve been working with the amazing Julia Blake who was instrumental in setting up my CRM system which kick in during April and May 2015 and resulted in a full diary in June – my marketing is now much slicker thanks to Julia, and I’m getting the results too! If you haven;t met Julia yet, you definitely should!”
Dorothy Maxwell, Director, BitKarma Ltd
“Julia is a treat to work with. She is tirelessly conscious of detail and an excellent organiser. I have known and worked with her on two occasions and seen her in completely different roles. Both times, she demonstrated the very same winning traits, an ability to cross into new areas an quickly master what the role/business required her to do and excellent interpersonal skills. Often her role included getting people to pull together to complete an essential task that wasn’t strictly with the job description. With Julia in charge, it would always get done on time.”
Georgi Rollings, Owner of Starfish Accounting
“Julia was a welcome breath of fresh organising air in the early days of my business, taking me from an office groaning with poles of paper to a filing cabinet and filing system. She quickly understood my main business issues and was able to suggest and follow through with some focused projects to ensure those issues were addressed.
Julia also set my business up on the great CRM system and trained s on it to make sure we could take advantage of the resulting time savings and other efficiencies, and has continued to provide ad hoc support on that system whenever needed.
I would highly recommend Julia to other small businesses that need organisation and increased efficiently in their working lives.”
