What clients say
'An exciting and thought provoking process' is how I describe working with Jane. She is highly skilled at getting you to unpick and gently unwrap the layers of your "onion skin" to get right down to the essentials. It has been an opportunity to help me define who I am, and what I offer, through a gentle process of mentoring and exploration. Jane's skill is that she leaves no stone unturned, helping you to resolve difficult concepts to achieve a strong workable marketing plan.
Until attending your workshop and this session, the word marketing equated with fear, dread and a feeling of I can’t possibly do it. I‘ve now come away with a remarkable, new attitude toward marketing. You have given me a formula to work with, that not only enables me to focus and structure my work, but offers the opportunity to be creative and the potential to be very exciting.
Jane has an excellent approach to unravelling the myth around what marketing actually is. She has a calm, logical and effective approach to marketing. In particular, her skill in planning a marketing strategy for long term benefits for each business she works with, has been very useful to all the clients I have recommended to Jane. Her unique style in the personal approach she gives to clients with follow up support as needed is so important and reassuring for small businesses. Key marketing decisions can often be quite costly and a word of advice or guidance from someone who understands your business could save you thousands.
I've worked with Jane on many projects, and keep inviting her back into the team. Her ideas and expertise always make such a great contribution to clarifying our strategic direction. Inspiring, yet focused. And when we get to implementation, she can make things happen quickly, on budget and with the very highest standards of delivery. She also has a sound understanding of how local business communities really work - and of their great potential. That's why she was a natural choice as our marketing partner.
Jane posed me some great questions to clarify my planning for my new business and generated lots of new thinking about the best marketing methods for me.
Thank you so much for everything over the last few months with the business and marketing training and mentoring. I’ve really valued your non-judgemental approach in helping us to re-evaluate where we’re at and where we’re going with the business. It’s been a really useful process leaving me with the enthusiasm to take things forward.
Jane has done several sessions for me and I always value her straight forward, jargon free approach. When people are setting up businesses, it’s very tempting to jump right into designing marketing materials like flyers and web sites (because it’s fun) without really understanding how to be sure they get results. Jane very simply makes it clear why a little hard work thinking about who you want to attract pays off in the long run.
Having experienced the ups and downs of managing marketing teams herself, Jane provides me with invaluable support. She can take and develop a brief, is realistic in her proposals, and can project manage when internal resource is limited. Her professional and flexible approach means she always delivers, and on time - a very cost effective way for me to get things done and gain the benefit of her wide ranging marketing experience.
With starting a new job, taking on new responsibilities and working with a new organisational structure, Jane’s support and advice helped me immensely. Her friendly, challenging and calm approach helped me overcome confidence issues and recognising causes of worry and stress. She’s helped me identify better ways of working and managing my time.
Jane worked with us as a consultant when our Marketing Manager went on maternity leave. We didn't want to bring in someone as full time cover and Jane was able to provide us with a very flexible option. This allowed the team to pick up the reins, but with a supportive and creative challenge to their direction and thinking. This worked well for our business, and met the needs of the Company and the team.
