Expert business advice and support – specialising in marketing

After the extended lock-down, all businesses are trying to cope with the new reality and planning for their future.

Now is definitely the time for some quick planning that gets to the heart of the business challenges, and then effective action.

With so many unknown factors to contend with there is little certainty about anything at the moment. By looking to the future and thinking through the potential opportunities, a route through will become clearer.

Our offer:

Experienced: Senior people on a project basis who will “hit the ground running”

Part-time: Marketing Directors and Commercial Directors on a cost-effective, flexible basis

Above are some of the main reasons that small and medium-sized enterprises have benefited from using the part-time Marketing Director or part-time Commercial Director model. Flexibility and senior level experience from multiple sectors are even more valuable in these uncertain times.

It is also cost effective. We don’t have big office over-heads or the costs of supporting a large, sprawling team of employees. Bringing in a part-time or interim Marketing Director or Commercial Director can make a big difference to how an organisation is performing without significant increases to fixed costs. Using this type of arrangement, rather than recruiting somebody permanently onto your payroll or committing to a long-term arrangement, means that your flexibility is retained and your risks reduced.

What people say about us

“When I was ACCA’s Executive Director, Brand, I engaged Sam in an interim role covering marketing and customer retention across 83 international markets. I saw him rapidly build strong relationships across the organisation and quickly start adding value to the global marketing function.”

Neil StevensonNeil Stevenson - Executive Director, Association of Chartered, Certified Accountants

“Sam joined us as interim marketing director at a time of dramatic change within the business. He “hit the ground running”, provided excellent support for me and the business and helped us put a permanent team place.“

Wayne Perks - MD, Teletext Holidays

“Sam has been working with Fizzbox as a marketing and strategy adviser. It has been incredibly useful to have him as an external sounding-board as we build our new business.”

Rob Hill imageRob Hill - CEO,

“Having Sam on our board as a non-executive director means we have benefited significantly from his marketing expertise and broad business experience.”

Jackie BrysonJackie Bryson - CEO, Mountain Training Trust & Plas y Brenin

“As a result of the work with Philippa we now clearly separate the marketing conversations to consumers and the trade, as well as concentrate more on the emotional benefits to customers than just the practical. This approach now flows through all our communication and gets our message across more clearly”

Steve MartinSteve Martin - GM, BP Travel

“When you are personally involved in an exciting and unusual holiday product like ours its easy to get lost in the detail. Philippa brought clarity, direction, focus and purpose to Summit & Blue. We finished with a much closer and simpler understanding of the market we are in, the nature of our customers, our key USP’s and how we should communicate with all of them to drive the business forward.”

Richard EdwardsRichard Edwards - MD, Summit & Blue

“Having senior level, external marketing expertise available to us from Perfect Level has been very useful for growing our business. It has given us access to an expertise that, at this stage, we couldn’t afford to have on the payroll permanently.”

Nick Shuff - Eventa GroupNick Shuff - MD, Eventa Group

It’s a bit like when you are taking on a new employee – great working relationships depend on there being a relevant match of an individual’s skills and your requirements – plus successful “chemistry”.

In our experience these aspects are best assessed in a no-obligation (and not “salesy”), chat which we can arrange at your convenience – ideally face to face but until that is allowed, via Skype, Zoom etc.
