SALES SUPPORT PRESENTATIONS
Getting your message across to stakeholders, customers and internal teams often requires concise and accurate information sheets or presentations, which can be edited and utilised by sales teams in the field.
MEDIA PLANNING And supplier liaison
I prefer a pro-active approach to media rather than re-active. I plan my ad concepts, copywriting and scheduling on a yearly basis, which means I never miss a deadline and can react to tactical opportunities without compromising the overall media strategy. I usually liaise directly with the media on behalf of clients.
CAMPAIGN CONCEPT & DELIVERY
Launching a brand or new product to market requires careful thought around channels, propositions, targets and internal resource. I can generate the big ideas as well as map out the mechanics, response and measurement systems which work the best for your business.
