Why I'm Great >

Who am I?

I understand that small businesses don't always have the time or skills to promote their business in-house.  


If you're looking for support with your digital marketing or need a safe pair of hands to deliver training to your organisation - that's where I come in! 

During my career I've worked with household names, entrepreneurs and small business across Northumberland and Tyne & Wear.  In the early days of social media, I built up an ecommerce brand which I sold in 2016.  Following this I worked in marketing for the National Trust and, more recently, I've worked as a trainer for the Google Digital Garage both in person and now, since lockdown, via live stream webinars and online mentoring.

Now I help organisations to grow their online presence and individuals get started with digital marketing as well as developing and delivering social media training.

Having previously run my own business, I understand the need to make every penny and every minute count and can advise how to use digital marketing channels to promote your brand without it costing the earth.

I'm a story teller, a relationship builder, inspirational trainer and a strategist with a love of the North East of England and a great understanding of the local market, all of which make me ideally positioned to help your North East business reach and engage your local customers online.  

But, what's a singing hinny?

Ah, so you're not from round these parts?

Singing hinnies are a scone-like, griddle cake traditionally made in Northumberland.  Hinny is a term of endearment (a Northumbrian pronunciation of 'honey') and the singing refers to the sizzle the lard makes when it hits the hot griddle pan.
