    Kathryn4B2B Marketing

    Canada - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 19 - Portfolio: 10

    I have many years of experience as a corporate marketing manager for mid-sized companies and as a consultant. I provide a variety of marketing and management functions. This could be anything from working with senior management to develop and implement a strategic marketing plan, sourcing external service providers, project management, website development, content writing and collateral development, training of in-house marketing personnel. I understand the challenges faced by businesses with little or no dedicated internal marketing staff. Because I am fully conversant and hands-on with a variety of marketing tasks I am able to provide a broad range of services that typically are not found in a single provider. This saves my clients time and money and leads greater cohesiveness overall. Industrial distributors, manufacturers, business technology providers and others, value my depth of knowledge and my ability to establish or streamline marketing department processes for greater efficiencies. I have excellent project management skills which means that a project will meet your expectations in terms of quality of finished materials and delivery dates. I use data and analytics to balance the 'art' of marketing with science. My skills have been instrumental for improving returns on clients' investment of marketing dollars. I also have experience in the preparation of business plans for start-up, expansion, and immigrant investors.

I can help you create a similar situation for yourself. Due to confidentiality reasons, previous business relationships will not be displayed on a public profile. Please do not ask for samples of business, marketing or strategy plans as these files are critical to the survival of a company, could violate NDA's, unduly expose IP rights and open the doors for legal action. You should expect the same level of respect and confidentiality from me. If you are serious about taking the next step. If you honestly have a burning desire and are ready to do whatever it takes... we need to talk.
