Chris's Profile

I am an Experienced digital marketer with over 20 years’ experience and an in-depth knowledge of Marketing, and the required IT behind this.  Experienced within both household name consumer facing business, and significant B2B businesses.  My love of marketing keeps me fresh and energised every week.

I have extensive insight into all aspects of running a business giving me excellent skills in negotiation, communication, customer/supplier liaison, presentation and self-motivation. I adapt easily to situations as specifications and requirements change. I am enthusiastic, driven and determined in everything I do. I like to think of myself as having entrepreneurial foundations built upon with solid tangible big-brand experience that I can put into practice for any business in any sector.

My in depth experience with boardrooms and C-suite executives over the years has provided myself with the ability to understand the complexity of business and the need to thoroughly understand the strategy of the board before rushing to in to action.

Whilst certainly enjoying majoring in digital marketing, I am a strong advocate of all digital marketers having a solid understanding of general marketing – B2B and C2C – as opposed to some who are perhaps just digital technicians. Marketing is passion and emotion, whatever the medium.

Outside of work I have a young family which keeps me busy, fit and youthfully minded. I enjoy cycling and outdoor life with them at every opportunity as I believe strongly that motion changes emotion. When I can I snowboard as it is a lifelong passion. I am an avid reader of all things in the personal development sphere as I am constantly looking to improve myself, so I can help others do the same.
