Rachel Proctor – helping businesses grow through honest and impartial marketing advice

Having completed university in Newcastle, and been brought up in Yorkshire it was time to head south and seek my fortune in London. I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do so looked for a temporary receptionist role to help pay the bills. I landed the dream job working for the UK distributor for Bollinger Champagne where I moved up the marketing ranks and enjoyed lots of Champagne! I continued my career within Marketing and drinks working for an online retailer, who actually wanted me to relocate to Paris, and although that sounds glamourous I was enjoying London too much. Maybe not seeking my fortune so much as spending it.

My next move was working for some Australian wine brands (Lindemans, Rosemout, Penfolds and Wolf Blass) – Perhaps these are known to you?  My career continued with another job at a wine supplier to hotels, restaurants and bars and most recently a spell in financial services.

So with many years of marketing experience behind me I’ve chosen to work for myself as an independent Marketing Consultant, in order to prove to myself that I can do it as well as maintain a home/work balance. I was bored of the routine and repetition of planning marketing activity for each financial year with larger companies and wanted a new challenge which gives me flexibility, variety and to be my own boss.

Since setting up my own business I have also worked for a range of businesses including a logistics company, an events company and a beauty clinic so it’s not all about drink.

I help SME businesses to:

  • Avoid marketing mistakes and wasting money
  • Stop ad hoc marketing activity with no real objectives, targets or measurements
  • Produce independent and tailored strategy and activity recommendations
  • Deliver results and a smarter return on investment from the marketing budget
  • Offer fixed priced strategy and implementation packages
