Canny Testimonials


Canny Marshall has provided fantastic advice, support and practical help to CEED to help us to promote and better use our RokerPods.

RokerPods were brand new, never been built anywhere else spaces that we had to work out how to best use and also how to promote them. Karen has been an enormous help and highly instrumental in developing a range of exciting promotional materials and raising the profile of the Pods through social media. From the start Karen has been imaginative and enthusiastic and has come up with great ways in which the Pods can be utilised.

As a small charity, a communications department (or even a person) does not exist within CEED and so Canny Marshall’s support has been invaluable. A friendly approach, but full of very good advice – all of which I will follow. Thank you 

Susan Nolan
Project Manager, CEED


We used Canny Marshall to help in our Communications team at a time when we were short-staffed. Karen’s background in marketing and the culture and tourism sector was invaluable and she was able to understand our organisation and deliver all of the communications duties we gave her quickly and professionally. Karen was a massive help and a friendly, positive presence in our team and if we ever need additional communications support again I’ll definitely be contacting Canny Marshall.

I employed Canny Marshall to look at DGB Event’s online presence. From virtually a standing start I now have a website which has been universally admired and am growing a twitter and LinkedIn presence. Karen really got under the skin of the business and worked out what made the business (and me) tick and then developed a bespoke practical solution. Money well spent!.

Canny Marshall has transformed the way I think and approach my handmade jewellery business. As an artist/craftspersonand teacher I just like to design and create…..not enough to be successful!

During our first meeting we discussed and clarified where Ireally wanted to be in my business, she had obviously already researched my area of work and had immediate, inspirational and practical suggestions, she has a totally different approach,  a business approach which I just do not! She gave me sound advice on how to get where I want to be.

After the initial meeting Canny drew up a ‘business plan’, researched craft shows, events and organisations I should be involved in and just have not had the time to research. Her marketing background is evident – I had never considered press releases etc.

I absolutely recommend her, she is motivating, energetic and has the all-important contacts, and her advice works.

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for all of your help, support and advice in establishing my first Little Nippers Baby Sale.Your knowledge and advice was invaluable. My first sale would have not been a success without your help.

You advised me on so many aspects which I would have never even have thought about, opened so many additional doors for me and provided exceptional marketing advice.

I would fully recommend any business needing marketing advice to use you. You are friendly, bubbly, confident, supportive, passionate and incredibly knowledgeable.

I could not have done it without you.

Thank you again
