ProfileI work with business owners to develop the potential of their businesses growth, particularly through their websites and the effective use of digital and social media.
I became a business and marketing consultant in 2013 and have helped many businesses so far. These include; Courtyard Solicitors, Knoetze Builders, the Saving Energy Group, Mourne Manor Organics, AJ Paine & Sons Tree Surgeons, The New Lion Brewery, South Devon Pilates Studio, Devon Haylage, Ola Chiropractic Clinic, The Hillyfield, Pelissier Tables, South Devon Joinery, Warrior Roofing, High Efficiency Heating & Plumbing, The Huntsman Inn & the author Lesley Broster Kinch of the The Manhattan Legacy and the contract leasing company Vehicle Save amongst others.
My clients encompass a wide variety of different companies with very different needs and pressures. I have managed to help them understand how to harness the power of digital media to help them grow.
I was introduced to the Association of British Mentors via my work for the government schemes GrowthAccelerator & the Manufacturing Advisory Service.
When I am not mentoring, I run a digital marketing company Peritus Digital. www.peritusdigital.co.uk.
I am an ex Group Account Director of Advertising Agencies McCann Erickson & TMD Carat working on high profile accounts like Saab, MasterCard and Sky TV amongst many others.
I was also McCann's 'Head of New Media', as it was termed then, this was 6 years before the launch of facebook!
I subsequently set up my own businesses within the construction industry. I ensured these businesses were well run, customer focussed and marketing led which enabled them to grow rapidly. After 12 years of successful growth, I sold these businesses in 2013.
