For over 25 years I’ve worked in a wide range of sectors from FMCG to technology, from catering to investment banking, and from the arts to the public sector. I’m now a self employed consultant focussing on marketing and performance coaching.
An ex-fashion model and fashion & textiles student, with a degree in economics, a postgraduate diploma in marketing and a postgraduate diploma in digital marketing, I’ve maintained my Chartered Marketer status since the mid-1990s. Making sure I’m at the top of my game – up to date with the latest legislation, procedures and innovative techniques – is important to me.
Along the way, with my desire for learning and developing, I’ve qualified in a number of other subjects including business and finance, copy writing, photography and even holistic massage. I’m ITEC qualified. I also hold a certificate in nutrition. Currently I’m studying Computing and Psychology along with Mandarin. Plus I’ve taken up Oil Painting. Let’s say I’m a serial student.
My career has been varied, challenging and interesting. I’ve covered many different roles, met a wide range of people, worked in totally different environments and most of all I’ve learnt lots along the way. I started my marketing career designing artwork for the Cover Girl cosmetic brand. Since then I’ve continued expanding my knowledge and enriched my experience working in sectors such as: IT, FMCG, The Arts, Public Sector, Financial Services. My LinkedIn profile page will give you more insight.
I’m a mum of two, an organizer of many, a blogger and a budding photographer. I’m a mentor through the Chartered Institute of Marketing, support NCS The Challenge, and run the Canary Wharf Coaching Community. Perhaps not surprising, I’m also a sweetie addict yet as soon as I can escape to the countryside for a Forrest Gump style walk I will. Nature is my savour and despite being a city dweller, I’m often to be found rambling, wandering through woodland or looking out to a lake, with children by my side.
I’m told I’m a calm influence with a good sense of humour. I’m professional, a traditionalist, with a creative and innovative mind. I maintain discretion at all times.
Through my working life, I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs both in work and in my personal life; sometimes juggling them both. I set up www.cvornotcv.com because I wanted to combine my experience, skills and knowledge to continue helping individuals achieve positive and appropriate change. There’s nothing better than seeing the spark of confidence reignite in a client and then getting an email or phone call to tell me of their success.
