Diane worked with our Economic Development and Tourism teams and local businesses in Garstang to look at how we could increase footfall. She carried out an audit of our visitor material, a review of regular events and markets. Diane was a pleasure to work with and gave us valuable insight into our own area. The resulting report has provided us a tailored programme to implement in the year ahead along with a wide range of ideas to increase footfall and the appeal of the town to local people and visitors alike.
Working with Diane on the London Markets Board since Dec 2017 I have been impressed by her commitment to the potential of markets as engines for wealth building and social integration. Her knowledge of the sector is broad and deep. I have valued her many contributions to the work of the London Markets Board, which was established by the Mayor of London, to explore how shared but fundamental challenges can be addressed so that markets can continue to empower people, grow prosperity, and make better places.
Diane had a clear understanding of the challenges we faced in combining our social enterprise ethos with widening our client base. She helped me recognise that how I was speaking about Mediorite wasn't reflecting who I wanted us to be! As a result, I am now clear on who Mediorite is and feel confident that for the first time I can communicate our value.
Diane has supported Redbridge Council to achieve some great outcomes. Her professional, flexible and innovative approach has been invaluable in helping us to develop a project that best suits our residents, small businesses and our Town Centre. Her extensive knowledge of markets and market trading has been clearly demonstrated and we look forward to continuing to work with her in the future.
We worked with Diane on a project basis for over eight months. With her combined marketing expertise and sector knowledge she completely reshaped our approach to insurance marketing. This resulted in us having a clear strategy in place and a realistic process for bringing new products to market. For the first time, we have the ability to market our insurance capabilities in a holistic capacity.
Diane and I worked closely together on a recent consultation project. Diane is a great person to work with, she gets things done to a high standard and on time. I really enjoyed working with her and hope we will work together again in the future.
Diane takes a strategic approach to communications projects. Her consumer research for our client Clarity provided concise insight into ethical consumers. She delivered on time and to budget, with great results.
Diane was an inspiration to work with. As a people manager, she was always encouraging and positive and had a calming influence on the team. As a marketing strategist, she has an uncanny ability to find solutions to get the right results. I found her approach to planning extremely robust and still use it for my own planning processes. She has extensive knowledge and network and this is displayed in her open-minded approach. I still go to Diane for advice on marketing and management processes and rely on her as a sounding board for all things business to this day.
Diane provided business engagement support as part of a wider multi-disciplinary team to inform the design and delivery of Walthamstow’s Night Time Enterprise Pilot project. She approached the work with enthusiasm and drive and her knowledge and attention to detail ensured a wide range of businesses participated in the project and benefited from it. I feel confident in recommending Diane in supporting high street regeneration projects with business support expertise.
As an innovation-focused company we have many initiatives to launch and we needed a partner we could trust to help a small internal marketing team get more done without needing any hand-holding. Having worked with Diane before, we knew this would be a matter of course but within a very challenging timescale she achieved exceptional results and it makes an easy decision to continue to use her services.
