Charlotte Baker

“Working with the team at Autumn Live enabled us to get a solid handle on our strategic objectives for social media, so we really understood why we were doing what we were doing, and they helped us to choose the best practical tools to crack on with the job.  It is testament to how useful the process was that, months later, the strategy document they delivered is still on my desk covered in handwriting and sticky notes and regularly referred to. They are passionate, knowledgable, thorough and easy to understand and to work with – just what we were looking for.”
