About Jane

Jane HeatonJane Heaton - coach, marketing and content specialist, writer

In 2000 I left 20 years of corporate life for a more independent one. I’d worked in an advertising agency, for a newspaper publisher and for brands like Shell and Cable & Wireless.

It’s probably no surprise that my first clients looked a lot like those big companies I used to work for and I spent my days supporting marketing managers and their teams in the private and public sector.

Gradually I moved more towards smaller businesses and my consultancy and project work evolved to include teaching, coaching and mentoring ... Helping people keep on top of the rapidly changing world of business and marketing while understanding that it takes more than a good ‘technical’ marketing plan to be successful.

With both business owners and marketing people my work is often underpinned by helping them gain the clarity and confidence to be themselves - avoiding stereotypes and the way they think things ‘should’ be - to achieve greater success (on their terms), fulfilment, and freedom.

Today I work with people in two areas:

  1. As a trusted marketing partner and adviser, helping business owners, marketing leaders, and marketing practitioners work strategically – with a specialist focus on communication and content.
  2. As a coach and mentor, helping business owners, marketing people, solo and employed professionals find a new business or career direction – or sort out an existing one.

I first trained as a coach in 2004, am a member of the ICF (International Coach Federation) and in 2017 trained with Laura Berman Fortgang to become an Authorised NOW WHAT? Programme Facilitator.

As well as running Jane Heaton Associates, I've also co-founded two other successful niche businesses and am a member of WiRE (Women in Rural Enterprise).

I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), Chartered Marketer, a mentor within the CIM mentoring programme, and author of Content Marketing In A Week in the Hodder & Stoughton 'Teach Yourself' series.
