For Deals we usually view everything, however if you have particularly sensitive deals that you don’t want us to see, you can change our Access to Owned Only:

Another happy client Australian Shareholders Association

Craig Bailey assisted us with developing and refining the strategy for promoting a major new initiative in education. He was able to guide us to clarity about our key messages and target audiences, as well as how to link the personas for those target audiences to those key messages and the channels we will use.

He was outcomes-focused, kept us concentrated on the problem we are trying to solve for the end user and added great value to our marketing strategy.

Craig is also very enjoyable to work with — the strategic lens he brought to bear never wavered, but we honed our strategy in a relaxed and fun session.
