My passion is helping organisations pause and define their business and marketing strategies with intention – challenging their market orientation, critically understanding the value they offer, and defining how to mobilise that value. My work builds on 18 years in marketing and communications, alongside years of studying global leadership and strategy best-practice.
Today, I support clients in business, marketing and communications strategy development; brand development and management; and workshop facilitation, particularly for strategic, complex projects with multiple stakeholders. This typically better positions them to achieve their goals by connecting their business direction with marketing that places strategy before tactics.
I thrive on understanding a client’s business and wider context so I can tailor evidence-based frameworks for precise, relevant results, drawing on my own experience in designing, delivering and aligning people to effective strategies. Through this, I aim to improve organisational capacity, capability, clarity, effectiveness and resource efficiency.
Since founding Marketry in 2010, I have supported a diverse portfolio of mostly business-to-business clients, from small-to-medium sized enterprises through to ASX-listed companies. My sector experience is deliberately generalist, including business improvement, construction, creative industries, engineering, environmental innovation, government, IT, infrastructure, management consulting, manufacturing, mining, not-for-profit foundations and charities, professional services, property development, real estate, resources, retail, software and tourism.
My style is professional, thorough, enthusiastic and creative, and blends big-picture and detailed thinking. My ability to ask great questions of leaders is driven by my love of ongoing learning. Recent development includes the globally leading MW Mini MBA in Marketing and Mini MBA in Brand Management, and masterclass teaching from the likes of Jim Collins, Chris McChesney, Brene Brown, David Allen, Patrick Lencioni and John Spence.
In addition to my qualifications in business and creative industries, I have a Master of International and Community Development, am a Fellow of the Australian Marketing Institute and a Certified Practising Marketer. It is also my privilege to be a Board Member of GraceWorks Myanmar, a community development organisation focused exclusively on Myanmar.
