When I came to Julia, I was running a portfolio business, using my background in writing, presenting, and programme making to offer a range of services. Then I realised that portfolio working – juggling these different jobs – wasn’t ideal for marketing or for my overflowing diary. Julia’s got strategic vision and an eye for detail. And what she’s given me is clarity.

Strategically, she’s helped me to work out exactly where I sit in the crowded marketplace of content marketing and communication. She’s also helped me to exactly what it is about my storytelling approach that makes a difference to my clients.

But she’s not only given me valuable insights. Crucially, she’s galvanised me into acting on those insights – to get cracking on that new website, on the branding, on the sixty second elevator pitch – no wait, the five second elevator pitch. That’s the level of detail I’m talking about, that brings the strategy to life. And when I’m in danger of neglecting the long view, because I’ve suddenly got a pitch or presentation to make, and I’ve sent a strangled text message, all in capitals…then Julia deploys what I now fondly call her “Chanteray Rapid Reaction Force” giving me incisive feedback and support. So Julia’s clarity has saved me time, stress and kept me on track to build my new business.
