A little bit about me:

I have over 13 years of marketing experience launching and managing brands in the UK, Europe and Australia. Most of my background is in health care, having worked with portfolios of up to 200 products including skin care, vitamins and natural supplements, pain, cough/cold and most recently contact lenses with global eye care business, Bausch + Lomb. Having worked in such a competitive and regulated industry I'm adept at creating unique marketing ideas that are grounded in research and minimise budget spend. I've been spending the last year working with and listening to small businesses as a marketing consultant and in the past month have been concentrating on developing a new online training program called Content Cogs. Online marketing is an exciting space to work in and I want to make it as easy as possible for others to start their own marketing without needing to spend money on a consultant. A lot of marketing is common sense but knowing where to start; where to concentrate your efforts for the best return; and what tricks and tools are available to make your life easier, is a skill set that needs to be learned and developed. Things I love: Can-do people. The buzz of solving a problem creatively. Being able to proudly think ‘I did that’. Chilling out through travel, reading and pilates. Laughing until it hurts. Things I could do without: The words ‘it can’t be done’. Office politics. Stifled creativity. Making small talk!
