IT’S A FAST CHANGING WORLD
In this increasingly digital world, I pride myself on deeply understanding marketing fundamentals, design and strategy better than most digital marketers. It’s fundamentally about business, not just tech.
My 20+ years experience includes working across a broad landscape of digital & social media, content, and tech. I’ve successfully designed and managed multi-channel campaigns and programs for Samsung, ASB, Auckland Tourism (ATEED), Vodafone, MicroStrategy, and others. I’ve worked for leading agencies including BC&F, Dentsu, and Saatchi & Saatchi. But it’s not just about the big bold brands, I love helping small businesses and startups.

“The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do.”
Professor Michael Porter
Need some help creating strategic clarity and then delivering results?
THE PERFECT ‘DIGITAL’ STORM
The digital landscape is complex and fragmented, making it impossible to win at everything. Resources are being diluted across too many activities, with results being less than impressive. The key is to expertly separate the ‘to do’ from the ‘don’t do’, then optimise those priorities.
I can evaluate your complex digital and social landscape, determining the essential channels and activities for maximising ROI. We can then redesign and accelerate those channels, optimising them to deliver better results.
WE NEED TO MEANINGFULLY CONNECT
No matter what your digital strategy is, you need to build meaningful connections with your audience. It’s a must.
Genuine storytelling is a layer that’s often missing in the digital mix. My years working in the advertising and communications industry has taught me that storytelling is important at multiple touchpoints. It’s not all about the tech.
We’re emotional not digital, responding to visual stories and crafted messages delivered over the most efficient medium. Branding is now at every touchpoint, every interaction.
Your users are people with beating hearts!
Time on the tools, time with the ball in hand – experience counts. I’ve plied my trade across this exciting industry for 20+ years, having worked in New Zealand and internationally for some of the best agencies and with some premium brands.
The problems vary, but what I’ve done all adds up. If you’d like to find out how I can lend a hand with your next challenge, then let’s talk. I’d love to help you climb that peak.
