I'm a seasoned and creative marketer and Brand Consultant with a long and established agency career.
Between 1993 and 2010 I ran a creative agency that helped build, shape and communicate some of Europe's biggest brands – and there’s a cabinet full of awards to back it up too!
For the last 10 years I've taken on a number of consultancy roles helping companies develop not just their brands but their businesses too.
Big brand savvy and small business friendly. No frills, no fuss, just good honest help and advice, whatever your challenge.
How I Can Help You
DEVELOPING EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES
Whether you're launching a product, a campaign or thinking of changing direction, getting your strategy right only comes from asking the right questions and uncovering truths and insights. That’s what I do. Together we can build an effective strategy that's right for you and your business.
Your strategy may be sorted but you you’ll need a safe pair of hands to see it through to completion.
With over 30 years experience and a proven track record in delivering projects from the simple to the extremely complex you’ll find this particular pair of hands very safe indeed.
Got a great idea but not sure how to bring it to life? Stuck in a rut with an aspect of your business and just can’t see the wood from the trees?
Whatever the problem my catalyst sessions are designed to help you find a solution. I can simply be a sounding board or apply some creative thinking to get things moving.
BRAND BUILDING SESSIONS
For small businesses and new businesses alike, getting to grips with your branding can be a daunting task. With one of my Brand Workshops we'll cover topics which include; the origins of brand and what it can do for your business, how a brand is created and the secrets of colour, type and taglines.
Using proven tools and processes we’ll explore how to establish an emotional connection with customers by building a solid brand platform enabling you to deliver a consistent message across all customer touchpoints - especially your social media.
You’ll be left with a greater understanding of how your brand can work harder for your business.
If you’re a more established business looking to refresh your brand or change direction, then get your teams involved in a hands-on workshop.
Need a professional and unbiased opinion on your current brand?
I can undertake a brand review from a simple top-line 'sense-check' to an in-depth audit. These can be done on-line (Zoom) or in person depending on requirements.
If you’d like a one-to-one consultation on where to take your brand then contact me to make an appointment.
Whether you want one day to set you on the right path or need me by your side throughout the whole process then I'm here to help.
I also work with a select number of trusted partners to deliver additional services which include but are not limited to: copywriting, website build, social media management, commercial photography and videography.
