Kevin Barber and Natalie Chaplin, MA, PGCE, PGDip HRM, FInstLM
Are you looking to grow your business through maximising your online profile? Do you want the support and guidance of someone qualified, experienced, trusted and respected? That's where we come in.
We all know that having a great product or service is no guarantee that a business will thrive and grow. We have spent much of our working lives as managers and leaders, across a range of different sectors (private, public and voluntary), where we have developed a portfolio of skills and knowledge that have become the keys to our success. We now work to support established businesses and start-ups, sharing these key skills, so that they can avoid the pitfalls, and helping them to attract new customers and grow their business.
We also know that one size does not fit all, so we offer a bespoke Business Consultancy Service unique to your business and your business needs. This could include Business Mentoring and Coaching, working one-to-one with you on reviewing your Business Plan, and putting in place Business, HR and Marketing Strategies to grow your business.
And for some business owners they simply want to get on with the day-to-day running of their business, and want someone else to take the hassle out of managing their online profile. We will work with you to create a digital marketing plan aligned to your business plan, and then deliver the digital marketing plan. Whether you are looking for e-newsletters, web content creation (blogs), or social media management we will take care of this for you.
Attention to detail, strong leadership, aspiration, self-motivation and the ability to motivate others, passion, drive and ambition, have always been aspects that have set us apart from others, and given us our Unique Selling Proposition (USP). Where ever we work, whoever we are working with, you will always find we are loyal and give 100% commitment to you and your business.
