Marketing training for creative businesses.

Learn how to think up and create successful sales and marketing materials with my marketing training.

Marketing training is right for your business if:

  • You want to improve your online marketing but don’t know where to start
  • You’re creating good marketing materials, but it’s burning you out
  • Your ideas are right, but the execution is letting them down

I offer training in marketing techniques and copywriting.

Every training package includes:

  • Pre-training meeting or call to understand what you or your team need from the training
  • Friendly, in-person workshop session conducted at an appropriate venue
  • Personalised training materials
  • Independent study activities where appropriate
  • Email follow up and contact for questions and support
Small group workshops

Learn together and build your skills. Small group workshops are ideal for existing small businesses and like-minded business people interested in developing their skills. You’ll learn more about successful marketing through individual and group activities, interaction and fun exercises. Materials will be tailored to your business or industry, incorporating current projects you’re working on wherever possible.

These workshops are suitable for a maximum of four people and start from £200.

My most popular workshop is Writing for Marketing, a half-day session where you learn best practice writing for marketing purposes, from understanding your customer to tone of voice. This costs £345 for a maximum of four people.

Large group training

Help everyone in your team get the knowledge they need. You can add extra people to any of my small group training for £15 per person. If you’re interested in training more than 10 people, please get in touch so I can give you an accurate cost:

In-house lectures

Introduce your team to new knowledge and ideas with an in-house lecture I excel at communication and I’m an accomplished public speaker. My experience as a university tutor means I can engage even the most time-pressed, disinterested audience, giving them something which intrigues, inspires and encourages them.

Some of my most popular talks are:

  • Mental health and marketing: how to thrive in our fast-paced industry
  • Lessons for young creatives
  • An introduction to sustainability at work

My talks last around an hour, including Q&A, and cost £120.

What my students say about me says it all.

Hire a marketer who understands you and your business.

In the last six years I’ve trained people of all ages and backgrounds to do marketing more effectively and think more creatively.

Alongside working with international brands to deliver successful marketing, I’ve presented at universities in New York, Stockholm and Milan, taught as a guest lecturer at London College of Fashion, and helped my clients’ teams build the skills they need to work sustainably.

I work as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Leeds, training Fashion Marketing undergraduates to become marketers with integrity. I supervise dissertations and run an employment programme for final year students to help them develop their creative portfolio and online presence.

My business is a creative one, and so’s my background. I have a BA in Design and an MA in History of Art, have been published in international journals and was shortlisted for the 2014 ModeConnect International Fashion Writing Competition (in association with Laurence King Publishing).

Most importantly, I am here to help remove the barriers preventing you fulfilling your potential. That means training you, and your team, so you have the skills and confidence to market your own creative business with success.
