I began my career as a graduate trainee at the prestigious global advertising agency, J.Walter Thompson, managing the media accounts of many blue chip clients and working on much loved, famous campaigns like Beattie (Maureen Lipman’s BT grandma), Lynda Bellingham’s Oxo Mum and the KitKat Pandas. After five amazing years, I moved to The Media Business and later, Grey. I then switched to the client side, holding senior marketing roles at the RSPB, Orange and Mercedes-Benz.
Since establishing my own consultancy in 2007, I’ve helped re-energize many great brands by refocusing their approach and solving big strategic challenges. Take a look at my Interim and Consultancy pages for more information.
I’m proud to have won two Marketing Effectiveness awards and several campaign awards, and have spoken at many conferences on the topics of branding and campaign integration. I’m a Business Leader member of The Marketing Society and was a judge for their prestigious ‘Young Marketer of the Year’ award three years in succession. I’m also a Board Trustee at Works for Us, a Milton Keynes based charity that helps people back into work.
As an experienced and successful interim, I’m often asked to share my tips and insights – here’s a link to a recent Marketing Week piece, and here’s an interview I gave to a leading Executive Search & Selection firm.
So if you think your business could do with a bit of a helping hand, just give me a call.
A Flexible Solution
I work on projects of all sizes with companies in any sector – from setting up whole new divisions to helping brands find a new agency. I can be as flexible as the project requires – working as many days a week for as long as I’m needed.
I provide marketing director support for companies while they recruit, or for firms that don’t need a permanent, senior resource.
By reviewing current marketing activities, ensuring your brand is relevant and consistent and helping you find new markets or new audiences, I can accelerate your business growth and create more meaningful, engaged relationships with your customers or supporters.
