My Brand Values
Curiosity – asking the right questions to gain insights into what makes your brand human, what your clients need and the value your brand delivers.
Individuality – embracing your brand distinctiveness – and identifying your standout client attraction factor, so we build lasting brand advantage.
Social Justice – working with people who are determined to make their clients lives better, however big or small the difference.

Believing in the potential of human brands
Every business, however small, has the potential to evolve into a powerful brand, so I know how it feels when your brand doesn’t standout and it’s hard to attract your best-fit clients.
You’re tired of being embarrassed by your business card and marketing collateral and want to feel proud of your brand.
I know you want to make a difference for your clients and stay true to your brand values and purpose. You want your brand to be authentic. I get it.
I’ve worked with many coaches, consultants, therapists and experts over the years. Together, we’ll get to the heart of your brand difference, craft your brand’s human values, attributes and personality, and communicate your value effectively.
You’ll have a distinctive new visual identity to feel proud of, that boosts your confidence and enables your business to grow.

I’m often told that I see (and make) connections, that others don’t. Lucky for me, it comes easily. Perhaps it’s come from working with so many emotion-triggering brands over my career… intuition, empathy and listening are by now, second nature.
Or maybe it’s my curiosity… I do love gently digging into businesses and brands – unlocking their heart and soul – and circling back to reassemble everything so it creates value, connection and differentiation that’s far from ordinary. That’s a great day’s work!
That said… my best days are the ones spent with people who have big ideas and a drive to leave a legacy that adds, not subtracts. By inspiring those people, to buy and build brands that bring change for the better, I’m living days that we’ll all remember.
And who are those people I spend my days with? They’re coaches, consultants, therapists and experts who are purpose-driven and values-based and ready to bring their change to the world.

“I was given all the support and direction I needed”
Branding is in my DNA
“I’ve always worked in brand marketing. Working my way up from Assistant Brand Manager to Marketing Director and Brand Consultant meant learning how to develop, manage and grow brands from awareness-building to advocacy. Marketing paints, fragrance and personal care products taught me that the real power in this work lies in selling the emotional and expressive benefits of products and services.”
“My experience cuts across all sectors and brand types. I’ve worked in business-to-business, business-to-consumer and in brand licensing. I love bringing the magic of branding to business owners who have set their sights on playing big, and here at Big Idea Brand Marketing, people are at the centre of everything I do.”
