Marketing Consultant, York, UK, working across York, Leeds, Manchester and the rest of the UK. I've been freelance since 2017, coming from a PLC background.
I take a consultative approach to working with clients, helping them to understand their clients and the markets they operate in.
I work directly with small, medium and large companies as well as with design agencies and associated services.
I'm also co-founder of Connected-York - a mobile app which was launched in 2019.
I love working with organisations who are passionate about what they do. I'm currently working in the drinks, training, rail and leisure industries, and each one of my clients absolutely loves what they do - and it's infectious.
20 years+ experience working in the beverages, financial, FMCG, retail, utilities, telecoms and charity sectors. Experience is B2B and consumer focussed.
Working with people. I'm not arrogant and have little time for fancy job titles. It's what you do, and how you do it that counts.
I'd like to think I'm a good translator - helping people un-jumble their thoughts and ideas, and then put them into practice.
I've helped clients and employers achieve various awards - such as specialist awards in Point of Sale, film making and more recently, Queen's Award for Enterprise.
I've also brought several organisations and products to market which is always a great challenge, but rewarding to see people's dreams become a reality. Is "dreams" a bit of an exaggeration? Not really. Everyone starts with a dream..
I like to work collaboratively - it saves unnecessary surprises and it brings better results. Although I work remotely as a freelancer (although can work in your offices) it's important that I understand your market and your business.
All markets have different challenges, and all businesses have different aspirations and comfort levels. It's part of my role to understand these.
