Windsor, Berkshire, UK

I am passionate about marketing and driving the brand, digital and customer experience and have been lucky enough to have been at the forefront of the digital evolution since 1997, initially driving ecommerce vision and regional marketing excellence for HP (included the start up of a $300m digital channel).

Since then I have continued in senior marketing roles for BT (developing a marketing framework for a £100m online retail business), Dell (developing a stronger, solutions-orientated sales mentality) and since 2009 have been Director, Marketing - EMEA at Symantec. I lead marketing and commercial excellence for mobile apps, cloud, software and services across EMEA and includes the evolution of the highly renewed Norton brand. Now, enough of the history lesson...what about me?

I provide consultancy advice to a number of small businesses offering ideas and strategies relating to business model and website construction. I like to share my knowledge and experiences and therefore warmly welcome contact from businesses or individuals who wish to "chew the marketing fat".

I'm not all about marketing and also actively support a number of charities which includes running a number of half-marathons and 10ks. I also enjoy mountain biking, music, good wine and food (who doesn't!), travel, languages (I also speak French and German) and current affairs.

I consider myself lucky to be able to work in an environment in which I have so much passion and interest and one of the main reasons for the creation of this page was for me to explore what more is out there!
