Craft a compelling marketing strategy based on your mission

Deliver an engaging experience and make a lasting impression

Position your cause for sustained growth and impact

Is your cause getting the attention it deserves?

If you find yourself facing any number of the following roadblocks, you’re in the right place.

Times have changed and you’re not seeing the results you once used to

Marketing is not aligned with your organisational strategy and mission

There’s disconnect between marketing, sales and business development

Your systems are not integrated and digital processes eat up your time

Key messaging and overall content don’t support your objectives

Your website is neither engaging nor converting leads

Your marketing funnel is running dry or shows low conversion rates

Your customers, members or donors are few and aren’t renewing

From concept to completion, we craft the blueprint that gets you results that matter.

We worked with Laura to streamline Azkua’s marketing processes and define our customer journey. We now have a well functioning marketing automation system that ensures all relevant data goes through one channel. She also helped us identify our client persona and designed our website wireframes, so we can ensure that all our communications address the client base we want to reach. Laura brings a wealth of knowledge with her and her maximising nature will make sure you deliver on the deadlines agreed at the outset.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with Laura to set up our new CRM and email marketing system. Laura is a true expert in her field and easily transported us out of the ”dark ages” to a place where we can now easily measure our client engagement, create tailor-made automations for specific needs, and welcome new joiners to our tribe. Laura reviewed and tested several systems before recommending the one that would suit our needs, budget and future aspirations the very best. She also helped us clarify and sequence our customer journey, generate plenty of ideas for our content strategy, and from there develop the wireframes for our website. Professional, detailed, action oriented and quickly responding to our questions and needs Laura is a true asset.

Laura is one in a million. I have never encountered a person with her unique mix of high-level strategic thinking and brilliantly detail-oriented executive skills. Laura is creative, determined and enthusiastic as well as a great sparring partner whose solid and thoughtful advice is to be taken seriously. She can navigate complex situations and deliver on a project against all odds. I always trusted her to pick up and enrich the brief on the fly and make things happen. Usually exceeding expectations, she was ahead of the curve in bringing innovation when the organization most required it. During her time at Akvo, Laura improved our marketing efforts enormously. Thanks to her, we’ve been able to roll out consistent marketing campaigns and generate qualified leads like never before. She used her creativity, intelligence, abundance of energy and entrepreneurial drive to make a marketing strategy that worked, brought results and hit the bottom line.

I had the pleasure of working with Laura on a variety of projects over a 7 month period. From a marketing perspective, Laura had the Midas touch and excelled in everything she worked on, delivering exceptional quality of work, on time and in budget. But what really sets Laura apart is her professionalism, her can-do attitude, her passion for what she does, and above all, her work ethic. I have no hesitation in recommending Laura to consult at strategic and operational level for marketing projects.

Laura is a highly-skilled, super motivated, professional and well-rounded marketing consultant. Over the course of two months, she supported our team in the implementation of Hubspot and more specifically consulting how to best bridge our marketing and sales activities and advising us on best practices across our marketing campaigns. Laura comes highly recommended at both a strategic and operational level and can be counted on to get a project done timely and exceeding expectations. On top of everything, she is an absolute delight to work with, positive and efficient – she isn’t afraid to delve into projects, ask questions and push her clients to be better and achieve more. I look forward to working with her again!

Working with Laura has been a real pleasure. She has been very helpful in the implementation of Hubspot in our company.

She has been of very good advice and support, and I would definitely recommend her work as a consultant.

Thank you for the great coverage of our event (EIT Awards Ceremony 2013) on our social media channels. We have been getting some really good feedback – everyone was really impressed and I thought you’d like to know that our keynote speaker, Naveen Jain, mentioned this to us specifically when we met him after the event!

European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)

As a direct result of Laura’s hard work we now have a brand new mobile-responsive website which includes an intuitive and user-friendly interface and blog, a more solid presence on social media and country-wide recognition with all large education foundations. Moreover, Laura proved to be particularly gifted in the development of marketing materials tailored to our diverse target audience.
