Why choose me 2017-09-04T08:38:45+00:00

I have been lucky enough to have worked with a variety of commercially successful brands and sole business owners on some amazing marketing activity, with award-winning results.

From hosting a secret rave in the woods for 1,000 people at a festival to seeing my ideas up in lights in Piccadilly Circus; from accompanying a fabulous business owner to collect an award for their brand to seeing another clued-up business reach their first 1,000 followers on Instagram. Mammoth or mini, a dream’s a dream and dreams can come true – I’ve seen it.

I love nothing more than seeing brands achieve the success they deserve and I fully understand that truly knowing your brand coupled with a dedicated marketing plan is integral to that success.

Packages

I specifically don’t offer packages as I believe every brand’s needs are different. I prefer to work with you to first, fully understand your business and then, ascertain how I can help. I then tailor a bespoke package just for you and your budget. This will not limit you to a formulaic package and offer you excellent return on investment.

So a bit about me. Originally from the north, I trained to be journalist (after completing a very ill-advised Law degree) and went on to write for the Metro newspaper and then edit a fashion trade magazine. In 2008, I made the leap from writing to marketing and moved to London, working for brands including Fenchurch, Diesel and PRS for Music. Alongside this, I continued writing for both trade and consumer titles and trained to be a coach.

I started my own business three years ago and have worked with an array of brands including Glastonbury, D.A.D and Standard Issue, as well as a number of small business owners on both their professional and personal goals.

I am also a public speaker and regularly speak on a range of topics such as branding and marketing, setting and achieving personal and professional goals, time and money management, and understanding limiting business beliefs. I have hosted events at The School of Life and founded the Brand Beautiful workshop series for business owners. Alongside this, I run a monthly networking group and I am also a member of an inspirational business club for the crème de la crème of female entrepreneurs in and around London.
