I set up Connect Consultancy to help companies and organisations improve communication, engagement and interaction with their customers, stakeholders and communities. My approach is to offer practical, affordable, tailor made solutions without the jargon and spin providing an honest assessment of improvements that can be implemented.
I have 25 years’ experience in marketing and communications, income generation, town centre management, destination marketing. I have also worked in economic development, regeneration, business support and inward investment.
My skills include marketing strategy, delivery and evaluation; partnership working; event development and management; project development and management; commissioning market research; bid writing and creating new services.
With a background in traditional marketing I help organisations increase their digital presence and take advantage of the power of social media and dynamic websites. I combine my expertise in creative writing through blogs, newsletters, direct mail, case studies and testimonials to help organisations bring in more enquiries, customers and income. As well as managing social media for clients I also love to share my knowledge through one to one support, team training or workshops.
I love the flexibility of working with lots of different organisations and enjoy managing multiple projects and delivering solutions that meet the needs of my clients.
I work with a specially selected group of trusted associates and companies to ensure that together we can manage larger projects or challenges.
My aim is to run Connect Consultancy as an ethical business aiming for the highest levels of professionalism, trust and credibility.
