“Video marketing has become something that no business owner can afford to ignore and we were delighted to have Jon Mowat from Hurricane come to speak on this topic as part of the business workshops at Aesthetic Medicine North. His talk was interesting and engaging and he really got the audience involved.

“As a speaker he was dynamic and funny and made the subject exciting with lots of practical tips clinic owners could take away and apply to their businesses. The talk appealed to both those who have done video content and those who had never done any video before which is a tricky balance to strike. It was fantastic!”
