    What a gig! Promoted to bring the Boom! to 2 key departments (and 50% of the UK business) with a focus on joining the dots in new ways to hit some pretty ambitious growth targets. My team grew to over 30 but our mission was clear… Simplicity was key - 1) First up, got the commercial reporting down from 52 pages to 1 piece of A3 which meant we focussed on what mattered - fast decision making and entrepreneurial thinking. 2) Refocussed the sales team on right thing, right time. No more fluff, just deliver things that grew the bottom line and made us profitable - they did a brilliant job 3) Reshaped our go-to-market strategy to be more consumer focussed and customer friendly. Revisited all deals, our distribution strategy and channel opportunities and listened to what people really wanted before actioning plans Then, we set about changing the status quo - 1) Pulled together an incredible team who helped us stop thinking about customer journeys (boring) and ignite customer adventures (Boom!). We learnt CX thinking and took advice from some of the most amazing experts to create a true ‘omni-channel’ strategy that fed into the Global vision 2) New partnership approach with our Diesel Retail Team which led to the biggest and most ambitious pop-up in Diesel History full of test and learn ideas hit Regent Street 3) Introduced data and real problem solving tech to make our Diesel lovers want to engage with the brand at lots of levels - this helped frame the Global CRM strategy and introduced the award winning ‘Tapestry’ tool to the business The result - - True clarity and direction across Sales and Marketing functions (the Holy Grail!) - Increased top and bottom line growth - A new and better decision making process that empowered teams to problem solve rapidly and investigate their own growth ideas - Higher staff retention and satisfaction results in company-wide survey - Awards and nominations from respected industry bodies (including the BBC)

    Here’s where I got to live the Boom! Led a fantastic team of 17 across 5 disciplines who grew and evolved with each new challenge. We were hungry to learn, keen to explore and clinical in execution We started with a clear philosophy 1) There were never problems, only solutions (thank you John Lennon) If we didn’t know the answer, we would test and learn until we could make a decision (and we did that on behalf of the Global team) 2) We listened to what our consumers needed from the brand - when the recession hit, we didn’t spend marketing money on ‘making noise’ - we invested it in our Diesel Lovers (and won an award for doing so) The result - - We were the first market to create and champion the role of ‘Multi Channel Marketing’ as best in class thinking for the industry - We helped our Diesel Lovers fall in love with the brand again through our Global radio station, Studio Africa and award winning Diesel School of Island life initiatives - we gave them more of what they wanted - We relaunched and repositioned our female business that delivered significant upturn in brand relevance and top-line growth - We became the ‘go-to’ market for new initiatives, inputting, testing and learning every season to innovate our business We were winners of the Marketing Initiative of the Year with Diesel School of Island Life at the 2011 Drapers magazine Awards AND Winner of Diesel Global Marketing Team of the year 2008
