How would your clients describe you?

A difficult one! Knowledgeable and realistic

Have you ever had a challenging client and how did you deal with it?

People are often sceptical of the benefits of promoting their businesses on the internet, which is understandable considering the comparative length of time it’s been around compared to other marketing medians such as telesales or direct mail. I’m now fortunate enough to have a large number of successful case studies that can demonstrate how other clients have succeeded and achieved a good Return on Investment through online marketing and this is often enough to change opinions.

If you could plan/ be involved in a celebrity wedding (alive or dead) whose would it be?

As an Arsenal fan, I’d like to plan Theo Walcotts wedding – just so I could mingle with all the players afterwards!

What is your vice? 

Cigarettes – I gave up on New Year’s Day!

Describe yourself in 3 words
