Amanda has lived in Truro for 11 years. Despite that and perhaps, because she lived ‘up-country’ for most her life, she still gets excited when she sees the sea and can’t wait to wiggle her toes in the warm sand.
She founded a social media consultancy in late 2013 called WaveMediaUK out of a desire to see small businesses in Truro thrive and also works with digital marketing gurus Alban Digital “I would love to see small retailers be the go-to places for local shoppers as they offer expertise and a friendly face. Sometimes, you even get a cup of tea and a biscuit’. Lots of cups of tea and chatter later, ‘Secret Truro’ was born with the emphasis on creating a buzz around what is happening in the town, how the trends are being followed along with news and reviews on everything from the arts and culture scene, to restaurants and coffee shops.
Amanda’s favourite books as a child were anything by Dr Seuss where she draws most of her inspiration from ‘Go Dog Go’ and one of her favourite films is ‘The Blues Brothers’. Her ambition is to re-create a cross between the ‘Big Dog Party’ and the Blues Brothers legendary concert at the Palace Hotel Ballroom on the fictional Lake Wazapomani.
Since founding Secret Truro Amanda has been asked to contribute to The Big Issue, The Samphire Club magazine and has recently guest blogged with Wildwest Communications and she also contributes to the new ‘Truro‘ Guide Naturally she was thrilled to find out that the first feature for The Truro Guide was coffee shops (how DID they know??).
She’s also now the resident twitter-bore on the Executive of the Truro Chamber of Commerce.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY?
"Amanda supported the CCF’s legacy campaign pro bono. The update on her popular Secret Truro blog was a fantastic help in raising awareness about the ‘Make a Will Week’. The appointments on the legacy week supported by Coodes Solicitors Truro office were very quickly booked, the campaign was a great success. It was a pleasure working with Amanda"
"Amanda has been a great help to me in getting my social media on track. She answered all my stupid questions, showed me how to use platforms I was less familiar with and gave me the confidence to make more connections. In short, she saved me a lot of time floundering around trying to work it all for myself. If you need a bit of bespoke one-on-one training, get in touch with Amanda!"
"I was introduced to Amanda at a lunch last year and she has rapidly become one of my most valued contacts. Another regular on the Cornish networking circuit we now bump into each other all the time! An absolute delight to work with and author of a fab blog 'Secret Truro'
She's very well connected and great fun, seek her out!"
