Testimonials


“TWKS’ interactive workshop was engaging, current and most importantly, extremely well researched in relation to understanding our consumer needs and how we can communicate our brand initiatives through the various social media platforms. The guys had the ability to relate and engage with the members of our European team using their extensive knowledge and experience within the social media community.”
Samantha Fogden, PR Manager, New Era


“We were about to launch Geordie Shore, our priority commissioned show for MTV UK for 2011, and knew that digital would be at the heart of our strategy. Our objective was simple: use social media to help it become MTV UK’s most talked about and watched show. We consulted with The Worst Kept Secret, who helped shape our digital plan and create a course on Twitter to train the stars of the show. With their help we exceeded our objectives. Geordie Shore generated MTV UK’s largest audience for any show ever broadcast on MTV UK and it was also the highest viewed channel in pay homes in this slot for its launch. I really recommend TWKS as they quickly understood our challenges and delivered results. I am looking forward to working with them again.”
Emma Roscoe, Head of Marketing, MTV UK

“It has been great to see the student-teachers put these ideas from TWKS into practice when I go out into schools and the creative ways that they have started to incorporate the use of social and digital media into the English classroom.”

“Here at Media Trust, digital and social media plays an increasing role for us and our partners. We were approached by TWKS and felt that they could help us review our current strategy and advise key personnel on future strategies both for Community Channel but also across Media Trust as a whole. TWKS designed a bespoke workshop for us to advise on building brand awareness to engage more communities and charities and increasing our online interaction. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”
Mark Dodd, Digital Media Director, Media Trust


“We engaged TWKS to help build our understanding and use of social media to grow our businesses. TWKS demonstrated a great understanding of the leisure market and our challenges – inspiring our team, building their skills and helping to develop digital marketing strategies. We have since shown greater understanding within this field in the workplace. We look forward to using them again in the near future and would not hesitate in recommending their services.”
Joseph Petrou, General Manager, Water World Themed Water Park


“We needed to fully understand ways and means to communicate with our target audience in the social media world. Since the course from TWKS, we have set our strategy and increased Magic’s presence across a variety of social media sites. It was time well spent!”
Sebastian Clark, Head of Marketing, Magic FM


“We worked with TWKS in Spring 2012 to learn how to use social media effectively. In the consulting phase, TWKS worked closely with us to tailor a programme specific to our needs as an educational charity. They understood our aims and delivered a course which was interactive and full of relevant case studies. We were motivated by the delivery from TWKS and have gone on to launch a new website and use Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to support our campaigns. We highly recommend TWKS to other organisations whether they are in private sector or charitable sector, as they are a company that can tailor to the needs of any type of organisation.”
Alison Mackay, People & Organisational Development Manager, The Lighthouse Group

“TWKS provided us with in-depth training which was tailored specifically to meet the needs of our business. They provided us with a sound basis for us to build our social media strategy upon. We look forward to working with them over the coming months.”

“TWKS came into our small charity office to talk to us about how we could make better use of social media. The workshop was really interesting and good fun, and was fully geared towards how a charity like ours can best use the resources we have. Staff from several different departments came and the whole organisation is much more clued-up on why digital and social media is important. Our activity is now much more targeted and we are planning to launch a video campaign in the near future.”
Tristan Paton, Fundraising Support Executive, Connect – the communication disability network


“TWKS has shown us simple, valuable and easy-to-do strategies to increase online video views. Their teaching methods are simple and very effective.”
Ara Stevens, CEO, Jumpoff TV


“We were extremely pleased with the ‘Social and Digital Media’ course run by TWKS. We had two main aims in working with TWKS: as a faculty we wanted to engage the pupils in GCSE English tasks in a way that was relevant to them. As a school we wanted to work with the students on raising their aspirations, two areas that we agreed the course was ideal in satisfying. The students were engaged in tasks that have subsequently helped them in improving their GCSE grades whilst at the same time gaining an insight into the manner in which the business world operates. A world in which they can now envisage working in themselves.”
Head of Boys English, Bishop Challoner Catholic Collegiate School


“TWKS’ knowledge of the past is comprehensive but it’s their insight of current trends and also of the future that really make their words invaluable.”
Andrew Akuffo, Manager, Brand Experience, MTV International


“As a charity with a focus on both the construction industry and homelessness projects, we really needed help with understanding which social media platforms were right for us and then developing a strategy to use them efficiently. Not only did TWKS explain clearly where we should be communicating with our target audiences, they enabled us to fully comprehend how and why. Their support has been invaluable so much so that we organised for Andrew Davis and Dowshan Humzah to present an industry specific social media overview to the senior marcom personnel from our patron companies.”
Emma Brophy, Marketing & Communications, CRASH
