Business Processes Optimisation

What I’ve done

During my time working with IMI Truflo Marine, I oversaw the finalisation of their corporate re-brand, assisting all internal departments to become compliant.

Playing a part in their adoption of lean project management methodology from a branding and tracking perspective, I gained first-hand experience of how important organisation is to strong business growth.

I helped to huide IMI Truflo Marine through a critical transitional period, helping to overcome the challenges of change management and applying new processes in the most streamlined manner.

My work also included building relationships internally and externally within the IMI Critical and IMI plc groups as a whole, contributing to the IMI plc group magazine.

What this means for your business

Because I understand how effective processes are put into place and documented, I can help you achieve the same for your business.

This could be in preparation for ISO accreditation, or refreshing your current processes, allowing your business to scale up.

Combine this with my marketing expertise and I can help you transition to or create a fully process driven marketing department. With a structure for growth and processes set for success, the way you do things at your company can now be taught easily to new hires, tracked and reported.

The power of process optimisation ensures quality for your customers and allows you to scale up your marketing department as the business grows.

Understanding Audiences

What I’ve done

The goal was to get more visitors to the Association for Japan Exchange and Teaching (AJET) website. The key was to understand exactly what their target audience needed and to supply that.

From previous research and work presenting at seminars, I knew members of the association needed

  • resources to use in the classroom;
  • professional development in their current teaching roles and;
  • opportunities to gain experience for future roles in their home countries.

Understanding their unique needs, I was then able to provide AJET’s English teaching professionals with resources they needed to be more effective in the classroom. A clip art repository with images teachers often needed to print for class.

By enlisting current members of AJET to create the content, AJET could also provide extra opportunities for their membership to gain experience for future roles once they’d finished teaching.

The result for AJET was a growing set of linkable assets and an increase in visitors. The high-quality, relevant content increased the number of visitors and kept them on the site longer, reducing bounce rates. The clip art also proved to be useful for link building as other websites would link to the resources, providing long-term SEO benefits for

What this means for your business

I can help you to understand your audience, then come up with a strategy that provides, them with the resources they need.

Time spent on your website will increase and you will build high-quality links.

Your business will get more qualified leads because they trust your resources.
