Our method has been fine tuned through the years whilst working with many mid-size businesses. This results in you finding the best Marketing Director for your company and your culture. So how does this work?


Business owners often get very confused about marketing and who can blame them? They listen to marketing consultants bombarding them with jargon, their sales team saying, ‘relax we’ve got marketing covered’, and people constantly trying to sell them a new shiny golden fleece at every turn. It’s difficult to know who to believe.

The Marketing Centre approach strips out all the padding and waffle and summarises our view of marketing in a simple matrix we call Marketing 360.

Business Insights

As you would expect having a whole team of experienced Marketing Directors gives us access to a wealth of diverse knowledge. We like to share it with you so you can have a clearer understanding of why and how things work, why things don’t always work out as planned, and most importantly what can be done about it.
