“I first met Naomi when she joined the Getting British Business Online campaign to add much needed energy and dedication to our partner program. We met again when Naomi led the mentoring of 10 ex young-offenders as part of the first Google Enterprise Apprenticeship program. Naomi did an amazing job transforming 10 shy, novice apprentices into polished, confident entrepreneurs in 3 action packed weeks. She’s always enthusiastic, understands how to communicate with people from all backgrounds, is a source of real inspiration and most importantly gets results! I’m really happy we got the chance to work together on this project.”
