Marketing means many different things to different organisations.
I believe marketing is ultimately about connecting with people – internally and externally. Whatever your organisation you need to get people to buy into your offer. Marketing is all about finding the right people to persuade and build relationships with. You need to be clear about your messages, know who to direct them to and ultimately convert them to your cause!
What I offer is a flexible and affordable marketing approach that combines the understanding of the value of research with the ability to produce relevant strategic plans and see those through to practical results-driven delivery. For inspiration and new thinking that will really make a difference and get the results you want I apply leading marketing practice from commercial and not-for-profit sectors.
