About

A marketing professional who delivers successful campaigns and brand management to public and private sector organisations.

Through RG Marketing and Events I provide organisations marketing and communications support, project management and campaign planning.

Activities delivered range from one-off and short-term campaigns, to longer term projects.

Flexibility is key and I work with staff, boards and volunteers to review and recommend suitable strategies to meet their customer and stakeholder needs.

Clients use my services for a wide range of marketing and communications activity including digital marketing, business audits & health checks, strategy development, blogging, social media planning, enewsletters and content generation. This enables them to focus on their systems and processes, and free up time and capacity for developing sales.

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

My experience, knowledge and skills will help you and your business develop marketing strategies, which can be adapted and tailored to your needs.

Involvement can be on a consultation basis through to managing and administering the activity. I also work with organisations an introduction and mentoring basis, building the foundations, then advising and guiding staff, boards and volunteers on their own activity going forward.

With experience across sectors including leisure, sport, recreation, education, charities, volunteering, retail, health, beauty and enterprise I adapt my knowledge to successfully build and deliver activities. Please do get in touch for a conversation to find out more and see how I can help.
