Your Expert

This is Cheryl – she’s a specialist in identifying where a business might be losing customers and therefore profit. She’s also a chartered marketer and mentor with the CIM, and a Watertight Marketing Master Practitioner.


Cheryl helped us identify the missing links in our marketing chain and her plan gave us a strong, visual representation of what was needed. She also brought plenty of enthusiasm and helped us get traction on those little tasks that we never quite get round to.”

We can also find the right team

Over the years we’ve worked with lots of designers, copywriters, photographers, web developers, SEO and PPC experts, researchers, business coaches, HR advisors, accountants and bookkeepers to name but a few.

As well as being consultants and advisors, part of what we do is to help you find the right person, team or outfit for the job, but we also mentor and coach teams in marketing skills development and team alignment. Specifically when it comes to marketing action planning and delivery.

We can also help with finding and funding digital marketing apprentices.


As well as bringing her deep expertise, she’s been a portal to the brand and web experts she felt would suit us and our business well. She’s kept us on track and we’ve always felt that she was deeply vested in our success. Thanks Cheryl!
