Specialising in the luxury and premium sectors, I help businesses achieve better marketing results by understanding their unique brand, values and challenges and implementing strategies and activities that resonate with customers shopping for higher-end items. I also run a range of social media group workshops and 1-1 training sessions, aimed specifically at small-business owners across industries, looking to up their game on Instagram, Facebook and with Paid Advertising. With 11+ years marketing experience across the fashion, beauty and lifestyle sectors, I have first-hand experience of creating and implementing successful marketing initiatives for well-known brands, coupled with a deep understanding of the unique environment and operational challenges faced by SMEs and their business owners.
