Pack Leader Dog Adventures

We love the new online store from Pack Leader Dog Adventures.

Mr Rossi our office dog loves going out with Dom and the rest of the pack on dog adventures so when the new online store was launched Rossi was all “I want, want, want”!

With my marketing head and a dog lover it’s got great content, brilliant web design, is really user friendly and obviously has great treats for my little fella.

If you have a dog or love dogs you will love the new store go visit it by clicking here


Swimathon 2014

Well that’s the Swimathon completed for the 5th year running by Team Twimmers!  We’ve managed to raise over £400 this year which takes our 5 year total to over £2000!

Swimathon encouraged participants to use the hashtag #swimathonselfie this year so they could capture all the swimmers poolside….I still havn’t mastered the art of where to look when taking a ‘selfie’ but here you have it :)

Howard Russell Construction


Trust Quality Pride…the three things that came out of the consultation with the senior management team at Howard Russell when talking about their brand.

Howard Russell approached us to help them develop their brand into the 21st century, creating a bright, modern, design led approach – the complete opposite to most construction brands.

Working with the talented NY Design and Indigo Crow, we have created a sleek, clean and professional website, new stationery suite, and corporate tender documentation.

Swimathon 2013



I can’t believe that this year will be Team Twimmers’ 4th consecutive Swimathon

Derek Curtis– Bond SolutionsMarianne Whitfield – Cobweb info and I have completed the Swimathon 3 times raising over £1500 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.  On Sunday 28th April we will embark on our 4th consecutive swim at Sunderland Aquatic Centre.

Let’s Go Fishing!


fish 1000 x 300 2Last week I had the pleasure of running a masterclass workshop – ‘Finding and Keeping Your Customers’ at Derwentside Enterprise Agency for 15 ladies about to embark on running their own business. 

With such a diverse group from artists to PR professionals, they all had one thing in common and that was ‘where do we start looking for our customers’? I try, with every company I work with to break this problem down quite simply by asking ‘Who are your fish’?

Imagine your customer base as fish – who are they, what do they look like and where do they swim?  Once you have managed to suss that out you then need to look at your boat – your business.  Is it up to the job of catching these fish? Getting the catch on board (sales follow up) and very important and often overlooked – How much of your catch did you land? (measurement). 

If you want to talk to me about your fish, give me a call on 07984 145219.
