How did I end up in marketing?
Some people accidentally end up in marketing. Not me, I was fascinated from being young. At university, I was fortunate enough to undertake a work placement at BA. Here, I had the honour of working with the Marketing Director. I loved every minute and learned from the best.
Where have I worked?
I spent 10 years in advertising working for the biggest London agencies. My work ranged from creating innovative lead generation campaigns to managing product launches.
Later I went 'in-house' where I worked in various roles developing marketing strategy and setting up marketing departments. I consulted at Vodafone where I created an award-winning social media strategy for their Enterprise business.
Who do I work with now?
Three years ago, I launched Sharp Thinking, to help small businesses with their marketing planning. I've worked with brands in the print, corporate gifting and construction industry, as well as working with retail brands and care homes. I've helped with their marketing and brand strategy and digital marketing.
In my spare time, I'm a mentor for the Kent Foundation and lead the marketing for the School PTA which has over 500 children.
And away from work?
I'm a mum of two girls, wife to a creative hubby and we live in Tunbridge Wells. Prior to lockdown, each Saturday, you could find me at Park Run and I was training to run a half marathon which I hope to do this year.
Two years ago I took part in a triathlon as part of a local team fundraising for the music therapy charity 'Norfoff Robbins' - we managed to raise £16k! I'm always looking for a new challenge.
