Skills

Background
I’m a senior Marketing professional with an honours degree in Engineering and a passion for technology and innovation. I specialise in project work, whether it’s creating online tools, new product development, website development, or re-engineering an existing business process. I love solving problems and improving things. You will find me a highly organised, strategic, analytical thinker with a close eye on the detail. I actively seek change and relish new challenges. I have worked in the UK, Europe and Australia and been part of global US companies. Working across multiple time zones and cultures adds spice to any role and I have always relished the challenges and opportunities that this brings with it.

Areas of Expertise:
  • B2B Sales and Marketing
  • Strategy development and planning
  • Analytics and research. Including segmentation, market research, process improvement
  • Technology, Engineering and Manufacturing

  • Marketing communications including both offline and digital channels. Product launches

Summary
I have a broad range of experience across Marketing and business disciplines in B2B markets. I am able to span the gap between technical (engineering, digital, manufacturing) and the ‘judgement based’ skills of marketing and management. Í am adaptable and able to work autonomously. I thrive in a project environment where I can solve problems, develop strategies and implement change.
