Social media is so much more than just marketing. The business world is becoming more social, a little at a time.
For want of a more succinct title I call myself a social communications consultant, helping organisations (and the individuals within them) understand what it’s all about, why the change is coming and how to make it happen.
Clients include, or have included individuals in PR, publishing, change management and communications, as well as organisations including Equiniti Group, John Lewis, Mogford Group, London Metropolitan University and Brighton University.
I have spent the last thirteen years in online marketing. Before starting my own business in 2002, I was a freelance consultant then Marketing Director for a Brighton online agency specialising in SEO and affiliate marketing. I have an MA in Digital Media (distinction) from the University of Sussex.
Mine is a corporate marketing background. I was Nike’s first Women’s Category Marketing Manager, going on to international marketing roles with Adidas. For more details and testimonials, see my profile on LinkedIn.
I’m also also an experienced speaker, trainer and writer on topics related to social media, online marketing and communications and recent authored a book for Ilex Publishing entitled Blogging for Creatives, published Spring 2012 and available for on Amazon. I’m a member of The Society of Authors and a Fellow of the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce).
I am based in Lewes, just over an hour from London.
