I have worked at a senior level in both the public and private sectors and have worked internationally. I am an accomplished relationship marketer, a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing and a Chartered Marketer.
I began my career in the civil service. I worked at the Government Office for the South West administering and promoting European Social Funded projects and then went on to work in Westminster as a Private Secretary for a government minister.
I have worked for Deloitte and BDO – both leading brands in the Professional Services sector. During my six-plus years at Deloitte I was responsible for a number of initiatives which positioned the firm as leading advisers to the public sector in the UK. During my four-year tenure at BDO my remit was to lead firm-wide campaigns and sponsorships and I was also responsible for the firm’s ‘Exceptional Client Service’ agenda. I undertook a three-month secondment to India where I recruited a local marketing team and designed and delivered client service training sessions to the BDO India team.
I am the Regional Director for the Exeter branch of the PM Forum which is a membership body for Marketing and Business Development professionals working in Professional Services firms.
I decided to go freelance in order to share my relationship marketing expertise with a variety of businesses in a manner which allows me the degree of flexibility I need with a young family.
