Affordable and flexible marketing planning for your business
As an experienced marketing consultant, I can evaluate your business, create a bespoke marketing strategy and recommend the right marketing activity to gain repeat business and new customers. My aim is to ensure every penny of your marketing budget is invested in the best possible way and everything works together so you reach your business goals.
The Sharp Way
I strongly believe in the foundation processes of marketing planning and strategy in a way that’s relevant to busy small to medium-sized business owners. Working side by side with you, I aim to find solutions that achieve results fast. I'll help to articulate your offering by creating differentiation through a brand positioning and ensure you're using the right communication channels for your business. The result is a marketing plan that's relevant, impactful and allows you to invest in the right activity to be successful.
The business was founded on the promise of having an honest partnership with clients who I wanted to see me as a trusted advisor. Clients value my honest opinion and know I’ll always put their goals and interests first – not mine or anyone else's. The fact I’ve worked with some clients for nearly two years, throughout some of the most difficult times, is a testament to this approach.
Helping my clients generate a return on investment (ROI) across all marketing activity is my number one focus and building your brand in the process. With Sharp Thinking by your side, you’ll be confident you’re marketing is addressing the right people, at the right time, in the right place.

Effective. Honest. Transparent.
Sharp Thinking isn’t a traditional marketing agency. You’ll be investing in me alone to support and recommend the right marketing strategy and activity for your business.
I have a trusted network of talented marketing individuals who specialise in a wide range of marketing disciplines, from positioning and messaging and brand identity to pay-per-click advertising and PR. This way, I can offer you a one-to-one direct service of the highest quality, and call upon the right individuals for your needs as and when required.
I pride myself in delivering a service to you that’s thorough, honest, precise, and efficient. I'll aim to make your budget go further so if I think you don’t need to spend in a particular area and can save costs from streamlining, I'll tell you. And I work in a transparent way that's beneficial for all parties - sending monthly timesheets and agreeing on a detailed scope of work – accountability, and goals are key.

What people say
"When we asked for your help last November I don’t think either of us realised just how wide ranging, detailed and professional your work would be. Whatever the financial results your input will have on the firm in the short term you have opened our eyes as to how we should approach business - and the financial benefits of that will go on for years.
I’d also like to say that not only are you giving us a master class in Marketing but you even help us complete our homework when we get under pressure from other tasks! Thank you."
