Business Development & Marketing Consultant

I help businesses develop and grow

Making a difference and contributing towards the success of a business is what inspires and drives me into finding solutions to your problems. I’m determined and passionate about what I do and I deliver results

As a freelancer with over 22 years experience, I offer tailored business development advice, implementation support and copywriting services, to start-up, small and medium-sized businesses.

With enthusiasm, dedication and a friendly approach, I will work with you to deliver your needs at any stage of your business, be it initial concept, improvement, expansion or future growth.

Do take a look at the results I have delivered – my skill-set is wide meaning I can help across a number of remits, including budget planning, project and event management.  I love what I do and will work with you to ensure we achieve your objectives.

I am competitively priced and will work with you to cost your requirements appropriately once initial contact has been made. My first consultation with you is always free of charge and under no obligation.

Building a business plan can feel daunting, but it’s really just putting into words what your business is about and why it’s needed.

I can help with any stage of your plan – from the beginning or once established but in need of updating.

I provide suitable templates, advise on layout and offer appropriate copy.

To ensure a business is profitable and making a healthy margin, the costs need to be precise. Often the less obvious costs can be over-looked. I have extensive experience in overall cost analysis, budgeting and  planning for growth in order to maximise profit.

Procurement of the right supplies and services will ensure you deliver your customers quality with proficiency.

I am skilled at researching the market, price negotiation and deal-closing on anything from products to distribution services.

Staffing, product and service distribution are a foundation of a business. Logistical choices need to run  efficiently and prove cost-effective.

I have reduced operational costs for a number of clients and can help plan and action the most economical processes appropriate.

Brand awareness and promotion is key to business success. I offer advise across all marketing channels and can direct you on effective brand and strategy planning, as well as advertising technique, social media management, website content and anything in need of copy editing.

Few businesses can grow without new consumers. I have gained new business – both physical and on-line, for my clients in a number of retailers and specialist areas. These include Selfridges, Morrisons, ASDA, WHSmith and a variety of property developers and charities.

I can help you analyse your market, know who to target, how and when, create a business pitch and assist on any level required with delivery of this.

Planning an important event can be a daunting task. Using my project management and negotiation skills, I have successfully delivered and managed large scale events, from sourcing venues, cost negotiation through to entertainment, invitations and reception arrangements.

I can help you plan, manage and implement your event and I am excellent facilitator and public speaker.
