Feedback & Testimonials: Updated September 2020
I am so glad that I met Emil McMahon, it was at a Balmain training session when I first saw him and immediately loved the training, his approach his energy, his vibe and from there I can say that there was a change in my mentality, the way I look at what I love doing , Hairdressing, this also means education . I immediately followed Emil and wanted to know more about him , when I heard that he was writing “Don’t Sell” I was eagerly waiting for its launch and I wanted to make sure that I was one of the very first people to get it. As soon as you get to know the name you immediately notice that the book will be a game changer. The world of retail is a world that I love and I feel the need to embrace it . What Emil did with the book is relate it to hairdressing and compare it with online shopping . I love the attention to detail and I think those who are scared of selling a product it is a must read. Best thing about the book is the more you read it , the more you appreciate it .

Emil, thank you for all of your support and effort throughout this difficult time. You have boosted the quality of my social media postings three fold and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Clients love the updates you provide. Thank you again for always being on hand to help. I would highly recommend you to other salons to help improve their social media presence.

We have worked with Emil, for almost a year now, and it has been a really easy and enjoyable experience. He is very proactive and, also reactive to opportunities as they occur. Emil has many wonderful creative ideas and uses images and video to great effect. We are often complimented on our social media activity, and the interesting and thought provoking quality of the material Emil posts on our behalf. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking to give their social media a real boost.
