About the expert

Bryony Thomas is the author of Watertight Marketing, billed by Start Your Business Magazine as “a must for small businesses”. It was described by one MD as “the entrepreneur’s essential marketing manual”, and by another as the “best business book I’ve ever read”.

This five-star business book brings together Bryony’s extensive experience and many hats - first as a marketing agency bod, working on clients like Microsoft and Dell, then as client-side director of marketing for ClarityBlue, a 200-person business that sold for £85m. Later she worked as director of marketing in the integrated marketing division of FTSE 100 company Experian.

In 2008, Bryony started the journey towards what is today the Watertight Marketing Methodology, working with ambitious growing businesses delivering 12-month marketing transformation programmes. Through her book, her speaking, her events and her hands-on support, Bryony Thomas now gives small business owners the clarity and the structure to step off the roller coaster and get their marketing to put their business on a sustainable upward curve.

She does all this part-time around her family, and can be often found playing in the sand pit with her daughter or snuggled up with her soppy grey tom cat, Dylan.
