Made in Manchester
Sales and Marketing - savvy, experienced, direct, pragmatic. Boy's school, police cadet then I was introduced to sales by my best friend's dad, the Sales Director for Umbro Sports.
In sales I found my vocation and I've never looked back.
My corporate career was in the hair and beauty market rising through sales, marketing and general management to board level of a leading International company.
Created my own brand building business in 1990 with a fanatical focus on understanding the needs of my clients.
I built my reputation helping small business owners and entrepreneurs. 10 years as BNI franchise holder for Somerset & Wiltshire training over 1,000 business owners in how to develop marketing partnerships.
Interests inc. photography, videography, drone pilot, Man U fan, grandfather.
Launched Marketing Crew in 2021 and Video Crew in late 2022.
Don't expect any “No airy-fairy, pie in the sky, hype" from someone who's never had a business of their own.
People come to me when they want to put structure into their marketing and their networking, generate qualified leads for their business and to gain clarity instead of overwhelm.
Align yourself with experience! I can help you identify what needs to be fixed and how.
You have a business, you're starting a business and you're not sure how you are going to get clients or customers.
I will show you how to get in front of more people who actually want to buy your stuff, so you stop wasting your time chasing people who don't. No more overwhelm.
New customers who pay, stay and refer.

Always eager to help and support, but also fast to adapt to a changing environment. He is a key person to watch and listen to when wondering the best way forward in a changing business world." Paula Carnell
"I have been involved in marketing for almost 25 years and I can honestly say that Paul has opened my eyes to some areas of marketing that I perhaps would not have otherwise considered." Ewen Logan
"Paul’s incisive questions are wielded with the deft precision of a scalpel in the hands of a skilled surgeon and they really do get under the skin of the participant’s business.
It’s not always comfortable, but that of course is the point." Andrew Western
