About Me

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.

My Approach

I am able to offer a flexible approach to meet the needs of my clients and although I am based in West Devon I welcome the opportunity to work with businesses across the South West. I can act as your outsourced marketing resource or can provide additional capacity for your in-house team on specific projects. In addition to working directly with my own clients, I work on an associate basis with The BD Consultancy and Monkey’s Paw Consultancy.

I have an excellent network of fellow professionals so I can engage the necessary experts to support projects if some elements fall outside my area of expertise.

Due to the nature of my business and my limited overheads and non-VAT status I am able to offer competitive rates compared to larger agencies. My fees will be agreed at the start of each project and any work outside the original scope of the project will be discussed and agreed as soon as possible.

I am passionate about offering an excellent service to my clients and will be practicing what I preach by asking for feedback so that I can continue to improve!
