About me

I have 9 years at MD/Board level experience in a creative business services agency and responsible to setting up both our London and New York agencies. I have 5 years’ experience of consulting at board and senior management level specialising in Brand and Product positioning, digital transformation, user experience and rapid business growth (growth hacking) across UK, European and US markets - including increasing market penetration as well as new product/service launch.

My background of working in Technical, Marketing and Consultancy companies delivering large scale transformation projects has given me the ability to understand the business, technical and human challenges many companies including charities face in rapid change and growth stages.

My approach is both analytical and creative, and I am acknowledged by peers and clients as having an ability to process information and data quickly to make clear and concise suggestions in terms of both strategy development and implementation, identifying opportunities for rapid growth in terms of sales/fundraising, raising awareness and donor acquisition.

I have experience in consulting and delivering projects for local and national charity organisations including Activities Unlimited, Scope, PDSA, Tar Sands and St Elizabeth’s Hospice.

I also lecture for the Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing at Post-graduate and Professional Diploma level on Digital Strategy, User Experience and Ecommerce.

What am I looking for

I am looking for Non Executive Director or Trustee roles where I feel I can support from a strategic direction and business perspective.
