Helping you find that extra ten per cent (and more). No jargon, no buzz words, just sound practical advice and support. Whether it's a one-off ideas session or full marketing support you need, why not contact us? The first meeting costs nothing.
With more than 24 years' marketing experience, my career began in 1984 when I was recruited to set up the London arm of a regional PR agency. I moved client-side in 1986 to join Logica plc. In 1989 I became European PR manager for Unisys and in 1995 I became European communications director at Wang (now Getronics). My last in-house role was marketing director at Lorien plc.
Moving from London to East Anglia in 2001, I now provide marketing consultancy to a number of clients across sectors as diverse as curtain poles and stone tiles; water and wine; logistics and retail design. Whether it's a one-off ideas session or full marketing support that's needed, I can provide skills across the marketing spectrum: research, strategic thinking and planning, the development of key messages, branding, traditional and digital communication, media relations and copy writing.
I'm also a stickler for focusing on what will benefit the bottom line. If it's not going to get you more sales or revenue... don't do it!
