Since setting up my first business - the first furniture package company based on the Costa del Sol - in the 90s, my professional life has been rewarding and exhiliarating.
As an entrepreneur, I have the freedom to create and mould a professional lifestyle that reflects my skills,passions and ethos;
- being creative
- connecting with people
- providing a service that was previously lacking or underperforming
- showcasing my work ethos for professionalism and going that extra mile in customer service.
- "work like you dont need the money" - with a laugh and a smile.
My latest business, 1on1 Consultancy is a boutique consultancy which has evolved from years of business consultancy and now focuses primarily on Online Marketing and Social Media for SMEs, entrepreneurs and non-profit organisations, creating unique strategies for each business or product as well as coaching & mentoring.
I also run several online websites alongside 1on1 Consultancy, which more often than not are the guinea pigs for any new tools, methods or strategies in Social Media Marketing - an industry which is very much open to interpretation and constant evolution!
I am also currently active in the local community in and around Marbella.
I am the Press Officer for the local charity L.I.V.E. which supports "those less fortunate", namely children's charities in Malaga. In the past 6 months since I took on this responsibility, the charity has dramatically increased exposure and awareness of the cause both online as well as through local press and media.
I also host the local "TweetUp", TweetMarbella which is a cosmopolitan, informal networking group which meets on a monthly basis. This is an opportunity to meet local or visiting people from the popular social networking site, Twitter, for business networking purposes or simply to come along, put a face to the tweets, or chat with others who understand Twitter and its benefits to businesses and individuals.
