Summary

I am a  marketing consultant who provides flexible, cost effective marketing services to small and medium sized companies.

My aim is quite simply to ensure that my clients' marketing activities produce the best results for their business.

My approach is both creative and pragmatic. I help my clients promote their company though clear communication and great branding. But I will also make sure their marketing activities are the right ones so they get return on investment and don’t waste money.

Whether you are looking for a part time outsourced marketing manager, want to develop and implement a marketing strategy to increase business or need support with a new website or brand design project, I am confident that I will make a positive impact to your organisation. 

I am a Chartered Marketer and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing with over 20 years experience in marketing and communications roles in the UK and internationally. As a marketing consultant, I have worked with business across a wide range of sectors.
