Area of expertise:  Digital Marketing 

When & why did you join Get Ahead:
I am new to Get Ahead ( February 2023 ). I joined as I was aware that ‘Get Ahead’ existed and as a ‘Freelance Marketer’ I thought I might as well get involved to fill some availability in my schedule. 

What did you do before you joined Get Ahead:
I am a ‘Freelance Marketer’ with 20 years marketing experience working across many different industries, agency side and client side including; banking, retail, entertainment, non – profit / charity sectors. 

Career highlight to date:
My work has taken me to New York and Cannes in France which were memorable career highlights for me.

I was invited to attend a Digital Mission event with UK Trade and Investment in New York and I attended an industry event at La Palais des Festivals in Cannes which was an unforgettable experience.

I was involved in a site refresh for HBoS Plc which saw the investments section of the site double its turnover and gain a prestigious award at the Financial Sales Awards.  

Plans for the future:
To continue building on my freelance marketing work. Working towards a ‘Salesforce Accreditation’ in ‘Marketing Cloud’.
