Kat Thorne
Morning Game Changer

I was so impressed with the power session I had with Annelies that I have already budgeted to do some follow sessions with her. I really needed a short, sharp slot with her to ask her some very specific questions I had about my messaging. She was really well prepared, walked me through some important steps and sent a really detailed follow-up document afterwards. She was really responsive and knows her stuff. A total expert when it comes to branding and messaging. And it was a fun session and a welcome break from me and my laptop! Would highly recommend it – great value for money too.

We have worked with Annelies since 2018 to help support our social media presence and reach as well as more recently creating and capturing our events and the thoughts of our champions.

Russell Parratt

I attended a LinkedIn workshop hosted by Annelies at HSDC Alton recently. I don’t know why, but I was expecting a quiet, formal-type session. Like “Now class, open your laptop and plod through these stages, blah blah” NO, what I got was on another level. WOW, Annelies brings so much impact, energy and fun learning into the room. We delved sooooo much deeper than I thought we ever could in a two-hour workshop! Thanks to Annelies, I have been able to update my LinkedIn profile and will navigate my way around confidently. I’m now thinking about my business from a completely different perspective – Brilliant!

Annelies has been a godsend.
She’s taken what was an optimistic mess of a social media strategy and has helped me create a comprehensive, planned approach. I now better understand how the social media world works and how to present my brand within that world.

Gill Wells

Epsom Footcare has had the absolute pleasure of working with Annelies 22Midnight since February and she has helped us transform our social media content. As a result of her excellent workshop and brand audit, we have upscaled the language and frequency of our posts which has resulted in our overall image looking far more professional than our previous random, last minute posts! In return for our investment in Annelies’ expertise we have seen an upturn in business from new patients which we are extremely grateful for. She has also recently helped us with professional business photos and videography – we had so much fun creating these with our team. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Annelies – she has digital marketing superpowers to be proud of.

Annelies presented at a #NatWestBoost Event for me supporting local businesses with top tips and skills to build and improve their branding. Annelies provided an excellent, professional & informative presentation delivered in such a fantastic way which welcomed the responses of the audience and really got everyone engaged! Looking forward to working together again on the next one!

Jeff Silver
Head of Sustainability, DOC Cleaning

I can’t thank Annelies enough for the work she did for us to launch our sustainability strategy. Having only decided to produce a video of the event at short notice, she ensured she understood the message we wanted to convey and the style of video we wanted as an end product. She made everyone feel at ease when taking part in being filmed, and the final product was more than we could ever imagine. Furthermore, it was produced in a such a quick turnaround. A pleasure to work with, and we look forward to working on more projects in the future.

Santino Fragola
Head of Life Long Learning, Wandsworth Council

Given the recruitment challenges over the last year we wanted to be sure that we were doing everything possible to communicate effectively with all stakeholders in Wandsworth and beyond. A small group of us worked with Annelise and she used a mix of formal training and group discussion to help us to identify what was working well and what could be improved.

We were very quickly able to make some small changes which led to a big improvement.

Annelise stimulated some interesting discussions about our work and encouraged us to be bolder and a bit more detailed in our communications about some of the work we are doing. In other words, be more explicit about the impact and support that adult learning is having on our service users.

We will be staying connected with Annelise as we implement next steps and have no hesitation is recommending her.

I cannot recommend 22Midnight enough. I thought I knew all I needed to know about branding and social media until this whiz showed me what she can do!  Annelies was able to cast a critical eye over my brand and quickly tell me what I needed to stop doing, plus what I should do more of. She is brilliantly honest and personal in her approach and really takes the time to understand your business and what you want to achieve. UTTERLY BRILLIANT!

I have recently worked with Annelies on a video project recently for my corporate clients. The feedback from has been incredible! From handing over very rough videos, Annelies polished them up like diamonds, ensuring they were blended, branded, subtitled and perfectly presented! Working in a super speedy fashion, I had them edited and returned within the day! A bonus to all this is that she is the friendliest lady you could ask to work with. I highly recommend Annelies and 22Midnight for branding, videos or podcasts.

Simon Wilson
Greystone Engineering

Having tried a few creative writers who didn’t hit the mark, I called 22Midnight as they are known to us and understand our business. Last year was difficult for the industry and included many moving parts for people looking to navigate the job search market. As our brand has grown, so has the readership of the Annual Salary Guide. It has become a critical benchmark for our industry.

We needed a professional job done to reflect our brand, expertise and industry knowledge, and it was essential to us that the tone reflected our brand’s voice, which is known to our clients and members.

22Midnight was incredibly professional and efficient – they just got it. I didn’t even have to read the final copy because I had full trust in their copywriting skill and ability to translate our message. We received great feedback on this year’s edition and maintained our professional edge.

I’ve just finished another video interview with Annelies, and despite my usual nervousness, concern and brain freeze about my answers, as ever, Annelies made the whole process relaxed, easy and fun. She’s just a natural talent! … intelligent, savvy, bloody funny and has oodles of creative energy. I adore working with Annelies for both video and being a great brand ambassador for us. Next month Annelies is hosting a table at an awards dinner for Glow, and I know I’ve chosen the absolute top person for the job. Who knows, we may even bring back an award! ;). Thank you Annelies, you put the sparkle into the mundane, and brains to the challenging. I look forward to working with you for many years to come.
