I’m an experienced and qualified chartered marketer (CIM) based in South Yorkshire. I love marketing and everything about it. I’ve been lucky enough to pursue a successful career in marketing over the last 15+ years. I’ve worked in both the public and private sector, and most recently for a fantastic national charity.

My specialist areas include:
Marketing strategy
Integrated marketing planning, processes and protocols
Content marketing
Digital marketing (not just social media)
Resource production
Branding, brand management and brand positioning
Marketing metrics and implementation of findings
Promotion and advertising
Event management
Copywriting and editing

My approach 
I use multi-channel marketing to promote issues and engage customers with both significant and small budgets – I have particular flair for optimising the tightest of marketing spends. I’m creative and a pragmatic problem solver. I have a trusted network of graphic designers, photographers, web developers, copywriters and printers, that I’ve spent years growing a strong working relationship with, to tap into.

Working with me
I’m as comfortable operating at a strategic level, as I am rolling my sleeves up and getting hands-on with a project. I’m a people person, I build relationships quickly and I care very much about my work. I love finding solutions to sticky problems and relish the challenges of making organisations or products stand out in fast-paced, busy marketplace. I’m highly professional and I have a very keen eye for detail. I’m hardworking, but fun giving energy and enthusiasm to all my projects.

What you can expect from me 
I will listen, understand your needs and provide you with a flexible solution to marketing management. Whether you need a strategy creating or your existing marketing plans implementing, I can help you drive your marketing forward, while you concentrate on running your business.

If you’re a Marketing Manager, I can help you complete tasks and projects that you may not have the time, capacity or skills to complete in-house. If you want to get something off your ‘to do list’ quickly and cost-effectively, then I’m here to help.
