It would be a pleasure to work with you in one of two ways; regularly under a fractional arrangement or to deliver a specific project for an innovation, branding or digital brief.
I have provided growth expertise and services to many brilliant food and drink businesses, and I'm pleased to have always delivered great outcomes for great clients.
Along the way, I've understood the internal and external possibilities, opportunities and challenges my clients have faced. And, I've seen the success and failure factors that significantly affect food and drink business growth.
My primary expertise areas include strategy, innovation, ideation, concepting, go-to-market, brand-building, web and digital services.
For many of my past assignments I have delivered against a specific innovation, brand or digital brief. In other work, I've provided a tasty blend of services and always set out to make 1+1=3.
In several client assignments and bringing my MBA and business skills to the table, I've also been involved in broader marketing, sales, and finance aspects.
My assignments have been of varying lengths, with my longest relationship running over four years. I have also delivered multiple projects in short time frames in programmes of work.
