</James Lane>


Sometime long after 1972, a crack social trainer was sent to Twitter jail for a crime he didn’t commit. He promptly escaped from a two-step verification stockade to the North East underground.

Today, still wanted by the Government, he survives as a soldier of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can tweet him…maybe you can hire James Lane.

What I do

I am the leading provider of digital skills and social media training, consultancy and support. I am a Google Partner, Hootsuite Certified Professional and ambassador for the UK.

Social media is a remarkably powerful tool for building, engaging and interacting with your community. I aim to show you how to rock the social media world, become authoritative in your field and ultimately, get more business.

Training is accessible for all levels of skill and experience, you will definitely enjoy it, and you do not need to know anything ahead of time. I will empower you to build a thriving community of engaged and interested members, to enable you to blow the socks off of your new customers.

If you’re confused by Twitter, baffled by Facebook, if you have a LinkedIn account you have no idea what to do with, or perhaps you just don’t ‘get’ Google+. I will help you become the social media ninja you have wanted to be.


I love talking to people about their social, Hootsuite, Google etc. If that’s why you’re here, that’s awesome. That said, any of the dumb things I say here, do not necessarily reflect the dumb things the people I work for would say.

I may at times link, refer or signpost to sites, individuals and/or companies; in most cases, these references should be treated in the context they were written and not subject to any crackpot conspiracy theories including, but not limited to, endorsements.
