A lot of these clients are SME’s and do not necessarily require a full-time marketing person but do require marketing support. Over the past few years, we have provided our clients with tender support as well as Health and Safety support and after the positive feedback we have been receiving about our marketing activity, we saw an opportunity to use our knowledge to help not only our clients but also help other businesses with their marketing goals. I have helped multiple SME’s grow their business throughout my career from solicitors to domestic clients, and I am really excited to be using my skills and experience for Promo Sphere.”

Mike Forsyth, Managing Director, Safer Sphere said “We are really fortunate that Lisa comes from a strong marketing and bid writing background and has run her own marketing consultancy business before joining Safer Sphere, so she is well-placed to head up our new marketing consultancy. Since Lisa joined us we have increased our Social Media following, brought our online safety magazine in-house and won numerous awards. Before launching our new service, we have already had enquiries, and we are hopeful to grow this side of the business and add additional members to the team.”
