Jeremy Spiller, MD, White Hat Media
As publisher of the Essential Business Guide, Julie has an excellent understanding of business from all aspects. She is very well respected by everyone who knows her and is a wonderful listener and adviser. Julie also hosts an excellent radio show the purpose of which is to help business owners and managers. Julie is one of the most helpful and supportive people I have ever met.
Vicky Hughes, Fugu PR
Julie delivered a very well organised and impeccably run radio show – generating good business debate with an excellent roundtable of business guests with varying views and opinions. Interesting for listeners and participants!
Lorraine Bell, Business Support Manager, University of Brighton
Julie invited me onto her Business as Usual show to talk about Corporate Social Responsibility. What a great experience! This was my first time recording a radio show and despite usually being comfortable presenting in front of people, I did feel rather nervous about doing this! Julie was just brilliant, she makes all her guests feel relaxed and facilitates really interesting discussion. They way she positions questions, even the challenging ‘devil’s advocate’ ones, enable you to respond coherently and get your point across. ..Julie has the knack of integrating each guest really well into the conversation so it feels like you are just having a chat and you forget you are being recorded. I thoroughly recommend being on her show and listening to it regularly as the subjects are always topical and relevant. Julie is a natural and I am sure she will be on Radio 4 soon!

Phil Thompson, Business Process Consultant
I really enjoyed my time on the [Essential Business Radio ]show. The subjects selected, relating in my case, to sales and marketing, were extremely relevant to SMEs and the issues they face in today’s economic environment. Through her extensive experience with small and medium-sized businesses, Julie knows only too well the the needs of SMEs and this came through on each of the two shows I completed. It was also apparent that Julie is committed to helping businesses and will always go the extra mile. [Essential Business Radio] is a great way of passing on advice and guidance without taking up huge amounts of valuable business time.
Andrew Nichols, Creative Director of Andrew Nichols Interiors
Julie. A completely new experience for me, but one which I really enjoyed, and would welcome the opportunity to be involved again. I think the concept of a radio programme dedicated to small business is almost certainly a first, and hopefully will grow and expand. Radio 4 eat your heart out!
Paula Tomlinson, On The Spot Tax
Julie is a fantastic radio presenter. Apart from the requisite smooth voice and calm approach, she manages to make all her guests feel comfortable, however radio inexperienced. Her calm exterior belies a nose for a good point to be made and explored further as the discussion progresses making the show naturally informative. I would be very happy to be a guest on any radio program involving Julie.
Steven Bustin, Business communications expert
Working with Julie on her radio show was great fun. She has a real gift for bringing people together, making them feel relaxed and then helping them to communicate with her listeners effectively and engagingly. She knows when to prompt with a pertinent question and when to take a back seat and let her guests do the talking, recognising that it’s the guests that make a programme.
Julie also ensures her guests get a chance to promote their business without the programme turning in to one big sales message.
Taking part was enjoyable, stimulating and rewarding on both a professional and personal level – I hope she’ll have me back one day!
Andy White, Senior Developer at Quill
It was great being interviewed by Julie. Thanks to her eloquent questioning style and friendly approach, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and felt I had come across in the best possible way. I’d happily work with her again – if only she’d ask.
