GETTING YOUR PROJECT STARTED
Projects of all shapes and sizes always throw up the dilemma of how to resource them. Do you use in-house people or bring in experience from elsewhere? It can be more cost effective than you might think to use someone with lots of experience.
START YOUR MARKETING PROJECT WITH THE RIGHT SUPPORT
Projects that are business critical like new websites, revising your propositions or launching new products or services always place a huge burden on your in-house teams. This additional pressure can have a knock-on effect on your day-to-day process delivery and there might not be the experience needed to get the desired result for the project.
I have delivered lots of different projects for both large and small businesses. The biggest single element of any project is the planning process. Without the right planning things can be overlooked and deadlines get missed.
Take a look at how I can help you below:
