Over the years, it became clear to me that it is not possible for agencies to be all things to all people as is often expected by our clients.
The biggest challenge was to find the right resource from existing team members and still deliver a profitable project for the agency. Trying to match the skills of existing teams to client needs was always a delicate balancing act.
Following a series of quite challenging projects I took the unusual step of outsourcing and offshoring my digital development, enabling me to match requirements to the skills required. The difference was transformational! I am now able to match a team of trusted developers to any project ensuring that the right people are in place and usually for a fixed fee.
I have subsequently been providing these skills to agencies who now enjoy all the benefits of this service, my local and offshore teams, my experience in project direction and winning pitches, plus crucially, a much clearer view on expected costs and projected profitability. With me you are in safe hands!

I have known Steve for years, and to me the important element he brings to his marketing thinking is his experience gained as a business owner in a variety of businesses. So many marketing advisers have only ever been employees and therefore do not see their suggestions/approaches “in the round”.
