With Nicola Masters
I have worked for HowNow since the company was founded. I'm loving watching it go from strength to strength, and am greatly enjoying meeting people from all over the world and showing them how the site works. In my spare time I also work as a writer. I'm currently working on my first novel, and my work has also appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe (Derek Award winner 2016 - Best Comedy) and on BBC radio. When I'm not sitting at some kind of desk you'll find me at the theatre, staring adoringly at other people's dogs, or standing in front of my fridge eating cheese.

I'm an award-winning filmmaker and entrepreneur. Not long after graduating, I founded the bookable video guide to eating and drinking, One Minute City, which was awarded O2 Smarta Micro Business of the Year, voted top 100 startup in the UK and was named ?The Future of Food? by the Evening Standard.  I grow th company of 3 years and partnered with the largest reservation platform in Europe and later licensed its technology.  Later, I co-founded lifestyle subscription platform Wonderush.com The Netflix for Things to Do? platform and raised a six-figure seed investment from Fuel Ventures which includes Mark Pearson (MyVoucherCodes) and tennis superstar Andy Murray in just 3 months of starting the business. Later, I raised a further six-figure investment on crowdfunding platform Seedrs in just the first few hours of the campaign going live. To add a bit more to this humblebragging, I’ve been recognised for my entrepreneurial endeavors by Virgin Media Business as one of the top 30 young innovative founders in the country as well as being featured in North American magazine Anokhi’s annual list of noteworthy South Asians from around the world, alongside the Managing Editor of Huffington Post and Miss America 2014.

Best practice and dispelling myths, so you can write the best digital content
55 mins

With Ronan Fitzgerald
Hi there! I've been working in marketing and communications for the guts of a decade. That means the need to write well, accurately, and sometimes under pressure. As my career progressed, it transpired that I had a natural flair for digital, and started specialising in that. This means website content, marketing emails and social media - three very different channels that need very different approaches in terms of writing. Most recently, I've developed an obsession with analysis of digital channels, and measuring the impact and value of my digital content. This contributed to a 55% growth in my employer's digital audience. Outside of work, I'm usually writing something or other. I've had multiple blogs on various topics, and I also write songs. I'm excited to share my knowledge with you, so you can write great, engaging content, whatever digital channel, giving you points of best practice, and dispelling some myths!

With Katie John
I am a Pronunciation and Accent Trainer, specialising in working with non-native English speakers. My native language is English and although I am British, I am currently based in Canada. Since I have lived in different countries and learnt to speak foreign languages as an adult, I understand the potential challenges facing someone speaking a foreign language in daily life.  I speak French and Italian fluently and I can get by in a couple of other languages too. Basically, I am a massive language nerd! I built up strategies for my own language learning and now I can help people through my experience. As well as being fully qualified to teach English as a second language, I have a first class MA Hons degree in Linguistics (specialising in Phonetics) and I have been certified by the International Phonetics Association. Over the past couple of years, I have been teaching pronunciation and delivering accent training to students from all over the world. I have taught students from over 30 different countries! I used to teach pronunciation in London and now I specialise in teaching via Skype. Why do I love what I do? Well, the amazing feeling that you’ve helped somebody get a job through speaking clearly in an interview is like nothing else. I have helped business people to improve their confidence in business meetings and I have helped immigrants who have recently arrived in the UK to speak more clearly and this has helped them to make new friends and settle into their new country. Here are my qualifications: MA Hons Linguistics & French, University of Edinburgh (1st Class with Distinction) TESOL (English Language Teaching) Cert IPA Certificate of Proficiency in the Phonetics of English
