Lived across 3 continents | Worked across 5 industries | Travelled to 40+ countries
Sit back and listen to my adventurous journey.
The focus was on me. The humidity was intense. After the short role play, the children calmed down and I delivered my message.
Talking about difficult subjects like domestic violence and child trafficking to school children in Ghana taught me about the importance of delivering a powerful and clear message.
But my interest in communications started before then. Coming from an entrepreneurial family, I helped with the marketing communications, website and graphic design of our small family businesses.
So, what next? With a passion for business and an unrelenting curiosity about the world around me, I took the bold (but rational) decision to study Master of Science in International Marketing at Manchester Business School.
I learnt about the power of marketing communications and the complexities involved when trying to reach international markets. I was especially fascinated by the multi-faceted topic of branding, and how that played out in local, regional and global contexts. This culminated in my dissertation on the branding of coffee in China and the UK.
Masters degree completed, I was ready to put theory into practice. So I moved to Slovakia, working for a small events marketing company. It was during this time that I started my own blog Inspiratti, where I continue to share the knowledge and practical experience I have gained from working in branding and marketing across international markets.
After a fourteen-hour journey, I landed in Singapore to start another global marketing role – working across Asia, Europe and America really exposed me to the importance of culture and relationships when working across different continents. Living in Singapore and attending conferences across Asia also exposed me to different cultures and food. Two years passed…
I secured an exciting position at a publisher in London. I worked alongside some amazingly intelligent industry leaders, helping them to build their brand and develop global marketing strategies to drive sales of their books. With a passion for branding, I directed a brand-building video sequence and led the direction of the new website.
After working my way up the corporate ladder to become Marketing Manager at SAGE Publications, I took the leap to start my own business, helping companies build their own brands.
And back to the present… I help small businesses stand out online through strategic branding and design for websites and all things digital.
For me, branding is the foundation of all marketing. Branding is more than just a logo. Everything you do is a reflection of your brand and forms an impression in the mind of your customers, prospects and followers. This includes the types of images you use on your website, the way you speak in your emails, and what you share on social media.
Successful branding requires that design and messaging are intrinsically linked. Design should be created in light of the core message, brand personality and value proposition.
That’s why at Inspiratti we ensure the messaging and design work together to support and reinforce one another and convey the message you want to deliver.
