Working with Angela is a pleasure - we get detailed reports on our progress and the opportunity to discuss the way forward – Max Blackwell
I would thoroughly recommend u-look-i-c Ltd as an asset for any business, whether you are a large or small organisation. I have been successfully working alongside Paul for the past 6 months and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Since his arrival at our business he has assisted the team in making major changes from accounts and sales through to the factory floor. He has an expansive knowledge of manufacturing procedures, sales, business structure requirements and product development. Paul has been instrumental in developing the skills of key members of our team and giving them the confidence to accept and embrace change, he soon identified our areas of weakness and implemented a plan to improve them. I would thoroughly recommend him as an asset for any business, whether you are a large or small organisation - CB
“The results are evident as I receive relevant jobs and have a full order book!” It was an easy decision for me to choose Angela at u-look-i-c Ltd to manage my digital marketing. I now receive performance data and information I can understand along with targeted social media posts on platforms that suit my business needs. The results are evident as I receive relevant jobs and have a full order book! I had very specific location and service needs and Angela has helped me to stop wasting time on irrelevant social media activity by helping me to create relevant and targeted content. As all my time is spent actually running my business I find Angela’s support takes the stress out of my daily activity; no longer am I worried about missing something as she keeps me in touch with online customer activity, letting me know when I need to deal with something in particular. Angela has created a cost effective website providing photographic images and written content to support my services. I don’t have time to sort out all my social media, Google and website updates, but know it is in safe hands following my simple brief and she will accompany me on a job if I need specific photographs. What’s more I receive a monthly report which is informative and measures progress I highly recommend Angela and Paul at u-look-i-c Ltd for all their business development services. We had a couple of meetings to get things started and now I can measure progress and get on with running my business. Henry
"Angela is a trusted partner and has certainly brought us into the digital world and fuelled our growth journey" We’ve worked with Angela for a number of years now.

She continues to support us with social media content, monthly performance reports and ongoing strategy suggestions and proposals. Angela is a trusted partner and has certainly brought us into the digital world and fuelled our growth journey – highly recommend - Daniel Moss Briggs Priestley

"Very professional, highly amenable and a great breadth of core competencies." We commissioned Angela to rework our B2B e-commerce platform content. Angela was an ‘external pair of eyes’ and rewrote our site content including fine-tuning the "message" to a series of bullet points and actions. Angela also wrote a detailed photography brief and directed the entire process with minimal down time to our business, taking the photos herself and skilfully using my team to support the process. Very professional, highly amenable and a great breadth of core competencies.

Paul is a great asset to any organisation. Very capable, unflappable, loyal and Goal Driven. Well respected and liked by all. A real team player, extremely competent at organising people and clearly defining the roles of the key players.

I am delighted to recommend Paul Blackman to any organisation or individual looking for that next step to success - I have known Paul Blackman since about 2011 after I was introduced to him by his wife Angela. I have found him to be very approachable and totally committed to making a real difference for the people, and businesses, in which he works. Paul takes a holistic view of business development and focuses, not just on the current situation, but on the long-term position. I had the opportunity to provide some leadership training programmes for Paul’s employees overseas. Paul traveled with me on these occasions and I witnessed just how caring he was about his people and the operation of the business. Since then I have come to recognise that Paul is a specialist in logistics, safety, manufacturing operations and general business development and have seen how passionate he is about making a difference around the area of growth and sustainability. Paul has a very impressive CV, brimming with talent and qualifications and, through a rigorous approach, has made a tangible difference to some highly-respected companies. He is well-organised and has an eye for spotting development opportunities for businesses and individuals. Coupled with his warm personality and insightful wit, he is a major asset to his clients and I am delighted to recommend Paul Blackman to any organisation or individual looking for that next step to success.

Angela is a good resource to have if you need to develop your brand locally or nationally. She has some good skills in design, video production and converting your ideas into communicable marketing tools. Raj Beadle Managing Director at Caffe Shop Ltd
Angela at u-look-i-c has helped me to ‘spread the word’ by creating a promotional video about my business. I never imagined that such a professional production would be so affordable, but through discussion Angela came up with a great idea of using my own archive video footage and photographs to help me to ‘tell my story’. Angela spent time with me trying to understand my business and the messages I wished to convey. She then produced a very impressive video which looks both eye-catching and professional and I believe captures the essence of my training business. During the compilation process, Angela was extremely patient and made many suggestions in order to get the look and feel correct. Angela has a real passion for creative design and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services for your marketing requirements. Martin Haigh
Not only is Angela the consummate professional, she is also friendly, trustworthy and highly engaging. Her management of the branding for my business was seamless. She approached the project with enthusiasm, creativity and an industry insight that has proven to be invaluable. I will certainly be returning to U-Look-I-C for future branding and creative solutions. Good people make business – and Angela is definitely good people! Andrew Miller Freelance Writer
"Video is such a useful tool and businesses seeking to ‘shout’ about their services must contact you." Dear Angela We are very impressed by your creation of the web video for our company which is simple, yet informative. It is such a useful tool and businesses seeking to ‘shout’ about their services must contact you. We will be recommending your expertise to clients and contacts wherever possible. For us, this tool could be great for property owners to showcase their vacant premises. Joanne Nuttall Partner
“Angela has given me invaluable support and I couldn’t have done without her” I have recently set up my own Lingerie & Swimwear Boutique and Angela was small business Mentor. She has been there right from the start, challenging me with every aspect to ensure I had a good business plan and brand concept. Angela has helped me to make the best decisions based on my ideas and where I wanted to take it. Angela has given me invaluable support and I couldn’t have done without her.
ANGELA I would like to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ to Angela for all the time and help she has put into getting Reliable Property Maintenance Ltd onto the social network. Angela has designed and put together both our Facebook and Twitter pages and has, and still is continuing to help with the social media side of the business development. As well as designing and putting together our Facebook and Twitter pages she has had to have a lot of patience with me as social networking was something I knew very little about. Angela has sat with me and explained how to do things and if I need to know anything she is only a phone call away. Angela is a very friendly person and when I have to ask a question she promptly replies or sorts it out for me without any hesitation. I can recommend Angela for all the work she does and it is always done in a very friendly and professional manner. Thank you
