About All Things Social

All Things Social was founded by Stefanie Haigh in 2015 to help small business owners put the social back into their social media, after a career in social media and content in London. She now works with small businesses in Guernsey & beyond to help them with their social media and content needs - either through training or by providing support as part of their extended team.

With my years of experience working with small organisations, I have the tools to help you find structure, support & success with your organisation’s social media presence.”
