Laura began her own entrepreneurial journey in 2009, setting up a marketing consultancy and managing a team of talented marketers and designers. She creates and executes board level marketing strategies for clients predominantly in the Technology sector, including Sogeti, Capgemini, Fox IT and NFC Group. With qualifications and years of practical experience in Performing Arts, Law and Complementary Health, Laura also works with established organisations and start-ups in all these areas, as well as the Luxury Lifestyle sector.
Her belief in and love of an entrepreneurial economy has also seen her successfully mentor many entrepreneurs in sales, marketing and business strategy through her consultancy business, for Canterbury City Council’s StartMyBiz and GrowMyBiz initiatives and while working with Rockstar Group.
Laura’s business knowledge extends far beyond marketing as she is also a qualified (currently non-practising) Barrister of England and Wales (BPP Law School). In combination with her marketing expertise, this legal knowledge has been invaluable in setting up her own businesses and helping entrepreneurs take their start-ups from inception to profit and international expansion. In addition, three years in partner and associate level legal recruitment has given her great insight into how to create a brilliant team with the right expertise and personalities to make a business successful.
Laura lives in the UK with her dog, Django. In her spare time, she loves her therapy work and study, delivering enrichment and healing programs for primates, canines, felines and humans; yoga; cooking; and sci-fi, comedy, action and thriller books and movies.
