About

I am a marketing and membership professional and have delivered successful marketing, communications, recruitment and retention projects and activities to B2C and B2B customers in a number of different sectors since 2003.

Through RG Marketing and Events I offer micro enterprises, small businesses and larger organisations marketing and communications support, project management and campaign planning.

Activities I have delivered range from one-off and short-term projects, to longer term campaigns. Flexibility is key and I can work with enterprises, large or small, reviewing and recommending suitable marketing, media and CRM strategies as per the requirements of the organisation.

Clients use my services for marketing communications, social media planning and management, and copywriting. This enables them to focus on their systems and processes, and free up time and capacity for developing sales.

My strengths include planning and delivering integrated marketing campaigns, which can be adapted to suit any budget, but which deliver results that can be built on.

My experience will help you and your business develop marketing strategies, which can be adapted and tailored to your needs. I can build and monitor your web activity, analyse and develop appropriate presences in the multiple and ever expanding social media and networking platforms.

Involvement can be on a consultation basis, managing and administering the activity, or on more of an introduction and mentoring basis, building the foundations, but then advising and guiding on your own activity going forward.

With experience across various sectors, including education, charity, voluntary, sport, recreation, health, beauty and enterprise sectors, I am able to adapt my knowledge to successfully build and deliver activities across my client base. Get in touch to find out more.
