Sarah is extremely knowledgeable and approachable. We wanted to ensure our staff knew about the far reaching consequences of social media and she was able to deliver this to a wide range of employees with differing levels of social medial experience. Sarah was able to bring the sessions alive with real life examples of where things have gone wrong. We would invite her to work with us again in the future.
I would unreservedly recommend Sarah as one of the best instructors for Business and Technical Writing skills I have seen. Her enthusiasm for the subject shines through in everything she teaches. Her concern for students and ability to work with them to leverage their capabilities is both excellent and admirable.
Sarah is a dynamic, reliable and highly efficient professional, her organizational abilities and drive are second to none. Not only does she have a broad range of technical abilities but also excellent soft-skills and can speak and write various languages. It is a pleasure to work with her and one can always be confident that whatever project she is engaged in will be delivered on time and to a the highest standard.
Extra Technology commissioned Sarah to write and deliver an email writing course specifically tailored to our needs.
The course Sarah delivered was an unqualified success and emails produced throughout our organisation showed noticeable improvement as a direct result.
From a personal perspective, I have applied the lessons learnt in Sarah’s course ever since. I wish I had attended the course 20 years ago.
I recommend Sarah’s services without reservation and hope to work with Sarah and FarOffice again.
Sarah has provided invaluable help and advice over the years with regard to my various websites, and provided expertise, immense patience and good humour when my luddite side surfaces. She has a keen eye for what works, and knows how to get the best out of the technology to achieve the desired effect. Her trainer side is evident in her very welcome ability to translate technical language into every-day English for those like me who don’t live in the world of geekdom. I recommend her highly.
Thank you FarOffice Limited for providing my business, Brian Haines Hypnotherapy, with a professionally designed website which ticks all the boxes. It looks good, it is easy to navigate and has a feel of quality about it. It is the perfect platform from which I can build and promote my business. As a client I was kept informed throughout the process with a comforting degree of consideration given to my own personal preferences whilst simultaneously being guided by the experience and wisdom of someone who understands the mechanics and organic nature of the web experience for potential clients. The number of complimentary comments I have received from clients to date just confirms my own opinion. Once again thank you FarOffice Limited.
I have worked with Sarah on several writing projects and however hard I try, I don’t think I shall ever be able to write as well or as flowingly as her. She has taken my ‘geek’ and turned it into comprehensible English, turned my Byzantine sentences into concise, clear English and she was great fun to work with.
Working with the team at FarOffice has been fantastic they have developed an awesome app for my client that intergrates with perch CMS seamlessly. I’d definitely recommend them and work with them again.
Fantastic service designing my company website. Very helpful, easy to talk to, and professional. Listened to what I wanted, then came back with an excellent design. They also helped write the copy for the site, which was very useful. I have been complimented on my website since it has been active. Highly recommended.
Sarah came to our office to deliver a training called “Email as a means of communication”. One does not always realise, but it is incredible what one can read and see in emails these days. Emails has become one of the main form of communication in and outside the enterprise, and also in our private life. This training opened my eyes on how much progress I needed to make in communicating. Being a non native English speaker has its hurdles, and this training helped me a great deal. Sarah’s training was incredibly helpful, and the best compliment I can deliver is in relating the following event: In the evening of the training, I sent an email to one of my customer, copying a few of my colleagues. A few minutes after I sent the email, I received a reply from one of my colleagues saying “someone has been on a training course today!” After only a day of training, I was already paying more attention on my writing, the content of it, and the message it was supposed to deliver.
A worthwhile training. Thanks Sarah
Sarah’s insight has been a great help in every aspect of my work.
Her personality and “learn by example” approach were light hearted but incredibly factual. The result of this made the more complex elements of the course easily digestible without sacrificing any of the subject.
The technical writing course delivered by Sarah was taught in such away that the knowledge becomes tacit in no time at all; I can honsestly say that every aspect of my writing is now influenced by the course material, much to the benefit of my readers and my company.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah in both a personal and professional nature. The return both my company and I have received from attending the course have been quickly seen and our skillset’s continues to grow with experience.
Sarah at FarOffice was indeed far, as in geographic distance (I’m a southern Yank; Texan, actually). That physical distance not prevent her being fully present to me as my baby-blog was being conceptualized, built, nurtured, changed, fed, and presented to the online community. Always an email “HELP!” away, seeing her responses pop up after I sent out a smoke signal, was like a breath of fresh air! She never seemed flustered or flummoxed and always had an answer or a way to let me be me. Her instruction helped me master what appears to have been a crash course in “how to mess things up and then fix them later”, which is how I learn best—get into the muck, make a huge mess, then start cleaning up—restoring order. Using the Perch platform she built in like a scaffold, I am now able to manage my own material, with the confidence that comes with knowing Sarah and FarOffice have my back. Forgive my penchant for mixing metaphors: Sarah is the brightest bloom in a garden full of Designers. I could not be more pleased with the results!
Sarah taught “Writing for the Web” course with humour and skill. I have used her tips and teachings since the course and have no hesitation in recommending her.
It was with great pleasure that I participated in a course conducted by Sarah. Her exuberant style of teaching maintained my attention to the course content. She is knowledgeable, experienced and has a delightful positive attitude. I highly recommend any course lead by Sarah.
I would like to thank you, Sarah, for all the invaluable help you provided in your Mail Chimp training via Skype. I had wanted to create an Art Newsletter and you helped me not only to create it but taught me how to update it so that I can continue to send it out. Your patience and clarity of teaching, explaining why things need to be done, and also via Skype, how to do so step by step, truly helped me to understand and learn. I was able to take notes too, so that I could refer to the process again and again, even after the visual ‘walk through’ the process. Thank you also for the kindness you showed. I would recommend your services highly and to anyone. A first class, much needed service by a kind and friendly professional, offering training in how to use modern technology to help us share information today. Thank you.
