Sales and Marketing has always been my bread and butter; Finding solutions and helping others is what makes me tick… and everyone has a story to tell, so here’s mine.
In my final year of an Arts Degree in Galway (Ireland), it became clear that whatever I was to do next had to be creative. I had always been interested in business, but also very keen on good design. I signed up to a Graphic Design programme in the College of Marketing and Design. But a fateful admin error a few weeks before the course started changed my direction to Marketing. I went from that post-grad diploma in marketing to the world of work, starting in Customer Service, then Sales, and on to New Business Development… and further studies by night for a Graduateship in Marketing degree…for good measure. Design is always there in the background though – and I like to think that creativity is a key hallmark of the work I do for my clients today.
Key to who I am – a professional who believes in hard work and a touch of humour, an organiser who’s honest, and a loyal ally to manage your marketing challenges – so that you can have confidence that I will be fully on your side as the work is completed efficiently and to plan.
I am passionate about small businesses getting the right chance to survive and grow, and I also believe we can all help each other. And so I try to give help where I can – by being fully present for my clients and giving my best; by giving to social causes through my work, whether that’s sourcing stationary from sustainable sources, or donating to charities; and through offering my services on a pro bono basis to one small business every year.
And as a Member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, I’m into good marketing done well – which means adding value and achieving a measurable return on investment.
My Clients – Real People
My business is all about people – my clients, and their customers – real people ready to try a new direction, and reap the rewards.
They want to be given some fresh ideas but they are also prepared to think outside the box of everyday…
My clients come from a range of businesses – mostly service related, and working directly with their customers.
They are passionate about what they do, have a strong sense of right and wrong, and are prepared to stick their neck out to help make a difference to other lives, community or environment.
And they want balance, simplicity and the knowledge that they are doing the marketing bit right, and doing the best by their business.
