So, how will this website help you get to the next level? I take a candid look at marketing, sharing my views and opinions on the marketing industry to help you make the most of your career.
Marketing can be a difficult industry to get into and it’s even harder to master. There is no set entry point and no single path to the top; wherever that is. Over the years I’ve spent in the marketing landscape, I’ve developed some go-to resources that I look at regularly. They keep me on top of the latest developments and provide inspiration.
Books, websites, podcasts, videos, qualifications. There are many things I’ve used over the years and I want to share them with you here. By making use of these resources, you’ll improve as a marketing professional, and if you’re new to marketing or still studying, you won’t need to spend time separating the wheat from the chaff.
I want to get you to where you want to be to get you where you want to be and one of the most valuable things you can find are ideas from people that have been there before and those that are going through it now. Your first port of call are your peers. Just like your peers, I’m offering a candid view of my experience and what I've learned.
Take advantage of my knowledge, avoid the pitfalls I've faced, get the best out of your career.

Experience in the voluntary sector in education, the SME market and even large international conglomerates like IMI plc, with the IMI Critical brand IMI Truflo Marine.
A voluntary organisation providing assistance to English language teachers, I was primarily responsible for selling learning resources, but my role also involved online as well as offline sales. Playing an important role in the rebranding of the organisation, I spearheaded improvements to the resource section to increase sales and useful content that helped boost search engine rankings.
Established the marketing function for one of the biggest Software as a Service (SaaS) players in the service management industry. After completing a rebrand of the organisation, I created and grew multiple microsites, oversaw several rewrites of their core website, email marketing, social media, PPC and even organising focus groups to develop the software and marketing efforts.
I gained a strong understanding of marketing within a multinational plc, working a lot more offline with datasheets, market research, bids, tenders and completing the corporate rebrand of Truflo Marine. In terms of digital marketing specifically, I opened up email as a channel for customer engagement and up sell as well as writing press releases for the IMI critical website.
