Karen – Marketing & Social Media Manager

I’m a marketing and social media manager with a Diploma in Direct Marketing and 20 years’ worth of experience gained across several industry sectors including: publishing, education, financial, charity, food and drink, and leisure. Clients have included Disney, Thames Tideway London, Manchester Airport, Futura Foods, Wing Yip, Pearson, Random House and Puffin.

I enjoy meeting new clients; really getting to know them and their business, understanding the brief and creating effective and bespoke marketing and social media plans.

Besides social media and marketing planning I also create new product launch campaigns, write blogs and website content. I’m a copywriter, researcher and proof-reader and have extensive knowledge of the print and production and advertising industries too. I’ve also produced and managed live events, photographic, film and video shoots for clients.

I also work with smaller, local organisations helping them plan effective launch, and ongoing, marketing plans (including email campaigns, direct mail, events, literature production), running their day-to-day social media, writing blog posts, advising on website content and campaign reporting.

When I’m not Twittering, Facebooking, Instagramming or blogging, I’m a mummy of a large brood (three children, a springer-spaniel, a bunny and six hens). I’m a lover of tea, yoga, kayaking, zombie films, fairy lights, G&Ts, and a serial garden fete ‘crasher’ (though not all at the same time!).
