Brand Your Juju: Ten Steps for Building Brands that Change Minds and Change the World
by Julia Hook
published by The Hook, LCC

For the branding process to flourish, we've got to do it together, in the right environment. Through online learning, on-site strategy workshops, custom webinars, meetings, retreats—whatever works best for your company's size and structure—we'll find your organization's true juju … its superpower. We'll name it. We'll write a story about it. We'll build a brand around it, or renovate the brand you already have. And then we'll shout it from the mountaintops.

“Jill Ronsley recently designed the eBook I wrote for my website. I found her through an internet search, and it was so refreshing to have such a great experience with someone entirely unknown to me. Jill is an outstanding communicator: smart, charming, an expert in her field, and truly respectful. The work she did for me was excellent. The book turned out beautifully. She made every aspect of the project easy for me. I would definitely recommend Jill to anyone looking for great typesetting and design, and a truly professional experience.” —Julia Hook

Mind Your Head: An Emotional Intelligence Guide for School Leaders
by David Boddy
ISBN: 978-190809562
published by John Catt Educational Limited

At a time when recent governments continue to suffocate head teachers in a sea of bureaucratic initiatives, this book encourages educational leaders to be adventurous, distinctive and above all independent. 

Available from Amazon and other booksellers.

"As a first time author I turned to Jill Ronsley to edit my book because of her considerable experience and deep understanding of human values and the educational process. The decision was the wisest I have taken. She not only examined the text with a sharp but empathetic intellect, but she also took her scalpel to my manuscript, eliminating the unnecessary and illuminating the points I was trying to make. The result is a far more readable book for the buyers and a far more satisfying product for the author. I cannot recommend Jill too highly." 
David Boddy

"John Catt Educational worked with Jill on the production of Mind Your Head: An Emotional Intelligence Guide for School Leaders . Although we were separated by thousands of miles, we found her very pleasant and friendly to work alongside and she did a thoroughly professional job. When the files arrived with us, they were in good order and exactly the right format. We would have no hesitation working with Jill on other projects."
Alex Sharratt, CEO, John Catt Educational Limited, London, UK
