What my Business does : The ways I work includes:
Full Event Management – I help you design, plan, organise, execute and evaluate the perfect bespoke event for you – including workshops, seminars, conferences, evening events etc .. It’s all about the engaging experience
Full Project Management – With my commercial experience and resourceful approach, I work with you to apply processes, methods, knowledge, skills and experience to kick start those important and long awaited projects into action …
Public Relations for your business – PR is primarily focused on communication with the public, potential buyers and the media. By communicating relevant information about your business and its products/services, I help you create a positive public image and establish a trusting relationship with the target audience, helping giving your business a bigger personality.
Website copy – I help you to make the most of your web presence ensuring the content is fresh, relevant and accurate. To attract new customers as well as keeping your old clients, your website needs to send out the right message. From product information and news, to client testimonials and blogs, I will help you to think through carefully what content to include and how to write and present it online, so it stops everyone in their tracks.
Marketing campaigns, strategy and plans – I enable you to systemise your Marketing. SYSTEM – Save Your Self Time Energy and Money. Don’t know where to start? Have past marketing efforts been costly wastes of time? Good marketing is the important link between business and customers. We will look together at what your customers need and want and how can you provide it, to build and maintain awareness, reputation and trust.
Business development and planning – If you have no aim for where you want your business to go, how will it ever get there? It’s easier to be passionate about the future if you can visualise where you want to go and how you are going to get there. Like any journey, you need a map – a business plan. I will help you create a business development plan to take you from where you are now, to where you want to go and make sure you get there!.
And much, much more, … from research, writing award entries, networking plans, data analysis support, competitor analysis plans, planning business trips and conferences etc, etc, etc – just ask me!!
Target Market : I work predominately with women in their businesses; helping break down the ‘to do list’. Giving you the time to work ON your business instead of IN your business. By tackling some of your daunting tasks I help you clear the decks so you can see the bigger picture.
Mission and Vision: My strapline is “Your Brilliant Business Angel”, summing up everything about the way I work; from being reliable and trusting, highly organised, yet with a positive feminine energy. I provide value led results. My Unique Skills: In my dealings and engagement with people I am always myself. I work authentically and holistically, from my heart. I inject humour and sparkle into my spin-tros at networking events, and relate to others in a personal way. People work with people they can trust, with someone who gets you.
“People don’t care what you know, until they know you care”
When delivering a piece of work I ensure I deliver to the highest standards possible, ensure no stone is unturned, deliver on time and on budget and am frequently told I under promise and over deliver, that I walk the walk.
My ethos goes beyond the event I am delivering, the press release I am writing, or the marketing campaign I am planning. I am so passionate about supporting women in business– so that they feel supported, encouraged and empowered to reach their full potential..
A Bit More About me: Graduating with a degree in the service industry; I trained to be a Buyer with high street retailers including Woolworths and Richards. I then worked overseas for 10 years in the Middle-East, Far-East and Europe, including Oman, Egypt, Morocco, Turkey and Greece for large Tour Operators (MyTravel, Thomas Cook and Neilson Active Holidays) in Travel Management and commercial trading roles.
I returned to the UK in 2007 and worked in managerial roles in Sales, Marketing and Business Development for well-known Exeter based companies, including, Unite Student Accommodation, Crealy Great Adventure Parks and Exeter University.
I am an extremely motivated and very forward thinking self-starter, with extensive commercial event, project development sales and marketing experience within the service industries.
I am experienced at both strategic and tactical levels of event and project management, and at designing sales and marketing activities within businesses to help you deliver tangible results and reputational benefits.
With a personable, professional and creative approach to driving local business forward, I have a proven track record of exceeding set targets and delivering outstanding customer service.
I have strong interpersonal and communication skills and excellent networking ability with a flair for developing trusting working relationships.. I have the ability to work positively and collaboratively with a range of colleagues and situations.
I am independent and focused and take on new challenges with passion, commitment and dedication helping you to achieve your goals.
In June 2014 I set up my own business, assisting predominately women in their businesses with Event and Project management, PR and Marketing I have the contacts, reputation and skills to be able to make a difference to women in their businesses in the Exeter and Devon area.
