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:
Integrated marketing planning, processes and protocols
Digital marketing (not just social media)
Branding, brand management and brand positioning
Marketing metrics and implementation of findings
Promotion and advertising
Copywriting and editing
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.
