A little About Me
To be succinct, I am an experienced business marketing and operations strategist, based on ground-up experience gained working in real Blue Chip businesses from Trainee Manager through to main board director. Career highlights include:
1984-1993: Managing, marketing and developing department stores for what was once the largest private business in Europe with over 36,000 employees with a 3.6B TO.
1992-2000: Carnell; Marketing and Development Director; Group Operations; Marketing and Infrastructure, with a team of c900, thereafter the new business model and template roll out. On leaving Dixon (Carnell)(Acquired by Dixon Motors PLC FTSE 250 1997) in 2000 to form my own company, they were the largest motorcycle group in the world, with a turnover exceeding 200m PA. I was the Marketing & Development Director, one of eight, for the +1 Billion FTSE 250 Company.

All in all, we are extremely pleased with the initial and ongoing marketing solutions and have no hesitation in recommending Paul and his team at Multi Web Marketing, in delivering professional and very high quality marketing solutions that absolutely do deliver impressive business growth.
Paul also advises me personally as well as our board on a regular basis on marketing and growth strategies. And it is clear that the strategic and personal advice Paul has offered over the last two years has been instrumental in many major operational and marketing changes within our business.
“Their holistic marketing services and strategic approach, has helped achieve the monumental growth of our business, by over £10,000,000, over the same six year period. We took the plunge, and I am delighted to confirm that we have received a record enquiry, that has directly emanated from LinkedIn, which has a construction value of approximately £50M.”
I would like to personally thank you for getting involved and promoting the value of strategic advice to small businesses. I am a firm believer that professional advice contributes to a businesses’ ability to grow. We know that in 2012, over 73,000 small businesses benefitted from some form of external advice.
I can say with confidence that over the last 18 months, since Paul’s appointment, my business sales have increased substantially, our marketing is more cohesive and our operational efficiencies are being improved weekly and as such I would not hesitate to recommend Paul as a Non Executive Director.
Honours & Awards
I have been fortunate enough to enjoy working alongside HM Government initiatives with UKTI, and was appointed as one of few ‘Expert Growth Accelerator Coaches’ where I offered tangible business strategy reviews, prospective and strategy for large SME’s (+30M). Whilst this initiative rolled for several years, it closed in April 2016. From this initiative, I accepted 1 of only 57 positions as a Digital Marketing Strategist working alongside Enterprise Nation (HM Government strategy solutions provider).
I believe passionately in offering as much tangible help and advice as possible to SME businesses. As such I was also, through HM Government UKTI, the sole media spokesperson for Digital Marketing Strategy for Yorkshire.
