From a free no obligation consultation, all the way through to expert consultancy engagements, I offer a range of services designed to help you and your business. More information about these services can be found below and if you have any questions at all please get in touch.

Initial Consultation


A free no obligation consultation of up to one hour. These sessions, conducted online or on the telephone, provide a perfect opportunity for you to discuss your marketing challenge with an expert. In some cases gaining an impartial perspective at this stage may be enough for you to resolve your challenge.

I understand that in order to discuss an issue then you may need to share highly confidential information with me. I operate with the highest professional and ethical standards and I am happy to sign a mutual non-disclosure agreement at any stage of the consultancy process.


By the end of this initial session you will have achieved one or all of the following.

  • Resolved your marketing challenge.
  • Have a clear understanding of the action that you need to take to tackle your challenge.
  • Identified the next steps that we can take together to resolve your challenge.

This initial consultation can be booked quickly and easily using the online diary so please get in touch.

One Day Workshops


The focus of the one-day workshop is a collaborative session where I work with you and your team to review your objective and start working on an appropriate plan.

Building on a pre-workshop questionnaire this session will be a deep dive to enable me to better understand your objective, your business and your customers and their needs. 

At present there are five dedicated workshops available. Further information about these workshops is available on request.

  • A comprehensive report and plan, with priorities, next steps and recommendations which will be delivered within two weeks of the workshop.
  • A follow-up call with Q&A to support the report.
  • Supporting resources and templates to help you deliver the recommendations of the report.

Expert Consultancy


These consultancy engagements are designed for longer-term projects when the challenge is more complex and a greater level of analysis is required. These engagements go deeper into your challenges with an impartial focus that only an outsider can bring. In this way, I go beyond symptoms to get to the root cause of problems. This makes it easier to challenge assumptions and identify opportunities.

As well as ‘one-off’ consultancy projects, many businesses employ consultants on a retained basis as it gives them guaranteed access to specialist expertise that they wouldn’t ordinarily have. If you have any questions about working on a retained basis then please get in touch.

Expert Consultancy rates will vary depending upon several factors. Each project is unique and will require an individual quotation tailored to your specific project. All pricing and associated costs will be clear and agreed before any work commences.
