National Farmers Union - NFU
We engaged the Social Jungle team to run a roadshow of 8 workshops for our NFU members in the South East. Farming faces many challenges from an increasingly urban population who have lost connection with farming and everyday rural practices. It is our job as an industry to help change these perceptions and this is why our roadshow with Social Jungle was so crucial. The roadshow proved very popular and we saw over 200 members attend across 4 days. The audience were very engaged by Alison & Simon, and we have had a lot of really positive feedback. We would definitely recommend Social Jungle, and we are already considering running some more events in the future.

Social Jungle provided us with a very comprehensive and encouraging insight into the uses and strengths of LinkedIn. It was very valuable to us to have a personalised and hands on input from trainers from our sector who coped with our lack of social media knowhow and inspired us to become positive about using LinkedIn productively. It was clearly an area we needed to engage with and were ignoring and which we all now feel more able and encouraged to start using to promote our department.
Elizabeth Badger - Professional Training Administrator
Simon spoke at the Farmers Weekly Agribusiness Marketing Summit in December 2015 on the topic of ‘Looking at the bigger picture: A strategic approach to social media’ with a specific exploration of its role in wider marketing strategies. Delegates commented that he was informative and very knowledgeable, with interesting stories brought and presented in a professional manner, and excellent use of case studies throughout the presentation.

Working with the Commoners of the New Forest was absolute pleasure and the results have been wonderful to watch. They listened, they learned and they took action. Read how they found their voice in The Farmers Weekly article HERE

What our clients say
After a training session with Social Jungle the Kverneland team were able to confidently produce Facebook content to increase engagement on the page. Then, after putting the training into practice, we received a very useful critique video with tips on how we could improve the page further. With the critique it was beneficial to receive input from an outside perspective. We thought our content was good, but without any real feedback, it’s hard to tell, and difficult to know what changes to make. It was encouraging for the team to hear that we were on the right track but with a few adjustments we could get even better results. With honest views from Alison, we now know precisely what's good and what can be done better. The training and critique has put Kverneland a step ahead of our competitors as we have a Facebook page with quality content and high engagement from our customers as a result.

Food & Farm Care Conference, Ontario, Canada
Farm & Food Care Ontario (FFCO) is a not-for-profit, whole sector agricultural organization in Ontario, Canada with membership from all farming types and associated businesses. FFCO’s mandate is to provide credible information on food and farming. In April of 2018, FFCO hired Simon Haley to speak to the 200 delegates at its annual conference . Simon's presentation was both relevant and thought provoking. He talked about the challenges faced by farmers and farm organizations in the UK when it came to overcoming misconceptions promoted by special interest groups. Now, through changing food values and embracing trends like social media, UK farmers and others working in agriculture are telling their stories louder, better and with greater results. Simon is a talented and passionate public speaker who was a great addition to the FFCO annual conference line up.
Brilliant course covered a lot of content which was relevant to me on a professional and personal level. Would thoroughly recommend.
