About Me

I am a forward thinking, highly motivated marketer with over twelve years of B2B and B2C experience, confident working with stakeholders at all levels. My diverse roles have allowed me the opportunity to work as the sole marketing contact building a team from scratch, part of a marketing team and more recently a manager of a team. Working under a great deal of pressure to meet strict deadlines, managing budgets and staff and balancing priorities have been key skills I have acquired and developed throughout my career.

My Background

I graduated from Brunel University in 2006 with a BSc in Multimedia Technology & Design, after a few years working in junior marketing roles I decided to further my knowledge and understanding in marketing as a whole and I took on a CIM Marketing Diploma with Oxford College of Marketing. Whilst studying I continued to expand my practical experience and industry knowledge with positions within the Building and Construction, Theatre and Arts, IT and Telecommunication and Payments and Banking sectors.

After gaining my qualification I took a more diverse position working across departments and countries within a multi-national company. My role here dealt with everything from online sales channel management and delivering online training to staff worldwide, to managing content and branding for sales pitches and bids being sent out to large UK and European banks. I gained valuable skills within this role and took a keen interest in marketing strategy, marketing analysis  and working with budgets. 

In the last few years I have had the opportunity to work with independent small businesses (in the Fashion and Building and Construction sectors) developing marketing strategies, starting up and maintaining a social media presence, online advertising, email campaigns and blogs through to artwork creation and website design, development and maintenance.

To ensure I continue to push my knowledge and understanding in the world of digital marketing, I decided to embark on a Digital Marketing Diploma with Shaw Academy this year, due to complete in Summer 2021.
