Unfortunately in today’s competitive marketing place, there is much more noise and with the ever increasing marketing platforms, such as Social Media and with the Internet set to grow by 500% by 2020, companies need to be smarter and savvy when it comes to activity. Companies need to be confident they are selecting the right platforms to focus their marketing efforts and ensure their spend is generating the most return.

Oliver Brooks, Managing Director at KOREC UK
“Elaine recently held a strategy day for us, and what really differentiated it from other similar days we’ve done was her comprehensive industry knowledge and relevant professional experience. That really helped her credibility and encouraged openness from all participants resulting in plenty of sound ideas which will be developed and implemented.”
Marianne Couderé, C.E.O. Couderé, Geo Service , 4C Grid bvba
“Elaine is a highly motivated and driven manager and acts in a structured way with her customer and the team. She starts her projects well prepared, keeps tracks of timing and builds on positivity and trust. She is result driven and her own business experience as a C-level helps the C-customer to quickly work on the real pain points. Her experience has a real added value and works highly inspirational. In a scientific and technical environment she manages to keep the team motivated and participative on the project and has a good follow up concept. I would highly recommend her services.”
