Sarah Pooley – The Digital Doctor
Thank you for speaking yesterday at our Women’s Enterprise Kent event. We really enjoyed your talk, it was very motivational and inspiring.
Louise Patience – Kent County Council
Jo is the epitome of a successful young entrepreneur. She is clearly knowledgeable, hardworking, well organised and focused. But for those who think to be successful you have to be bull headed, arrogant, greedy and pushy – Jo is none of these. She is always pleasant, helpful, and mindful of needs of others – including staff and great fun. Jo makes others feel good!
Don Hales – Founder & Chairman of Awards International
I have known Jo for a number of years and every time we meet; her passion for business just seems to get stronger every time. Her energy and infectious enthusiasm for her company, her team and her commitment to customer service is clear to see.
I was truly honoured when she called me for the company to re-join the Chamber and I’m even more pleased that Active Digital won the Excellence in Customer Service award at the Invicta Chamber Business Awards 2015 which was so very well deserved. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Jo or Active Digital to others.
Louisa Felstead – North Kent Representative for Kent Invicta Chamber
Jo is a professional through and through, has good detailed working knowledge of her business area and client needs. Productive, trustworthy, excellent work ethics with both staff and clients and an all round team player. Highly recommended.
Gary Collins – Director of Triglyph Property Consultants
I worked with Jo as Director at Active Digital and always found her warm and friendly personality made her very approachable and a very effective communicator. Jo’s natural drive and enthusiasm is extremely inspiring to be around and I would choose to work with her again without hesitation.
