Marketing Consulting Service

We know what it takes to deliver a good event, and we understand your pain

We know you are in the firing line.

As an Event or Marketing Manager you need the best return on investment, including lead generation, from your events. However – you probably have too few resources and you don’t have the team or the time.

We also know you probably have a lot of hoops to jump through. Perhaps the biggest hoop (and arguably the most important one) is the finance and budget approval hoop.

You may have used an event organising company before, and we are sure they did ok on the logistics and venues – if only they’d understood your business objectives and the politics a bit better….

We can take away your pain with our experience and big-brand secrets

We are well qualified to help you to get through all the hoops.

Our experience comes from working client-side in leadership roles in Operational and Comms Marketing, and Events and Business Management in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa. We understand that actually delivering the event is only half the story.

After 25 years in big-brand, blue chip companies, and after all the mistakes, we reckon we know some stuff. We bring along our secrets, our understanding, and our tried and tested experiences. We work in the background, behind you, to help you deliver the best event you’ve ever done.

Enjoy effortless preparation, as we work behind the scenes.

Acting as part of your team, our service is bespoke, high quality and comes with total commitment. We can deliver all the stuff you need to manage your project – on the inside and on the outside.

You can choose from a combination of event service elements that suit your objectives.

We aren’t nit-picky about extra work or going over and above – it’s normal, and part of our DNA, because our goals and our experiences match yours.

And now you're the smartest manager in the room

Prove it!

I have had the pleasure of working with Dorne for about 4 years on different projects. She is quite a dynamo! She is well respected for her ability to manage multiple activities at one time and always with a stellar outcome. Dorne has the ability to work across multiple departments and level of staff whether it is the CEO of the company or an SE, both get treated with the same deference and respect. Once you work and meet Dorne, you will never forget the experience. Partnering with Dorne is always a pleasure.

Dorne is an excellent manager (and motivator) of agencies and broader communications projects, with a strong eye for detail/budget and a clear understanding of - and empathy for - the role of agencies. The result is an effective team approach that takes a creative, ambitious and yet highly pragmatic route to delivering communications results, managing the competing demands of a complex organisation.

Dorne is impeccable in the management of our events and marketing matters. She strongly supports the Management and Sales initiatives as well as ensuring there is continuous feedback through to our clients. Dorne is a pleasure to work with and is always responsive to any query or question.

I've worked with Dorne for 7 years. She has a real can-do approach to marketing & PR. She understands the technology market, her company, and its objectives, but knows how to get things done on time, on budget and on message.

Stewart Baines - MD, FuturityMedia, UK

I have worked for Dorne for over 5 years on various events for Orange Business Service and I have found her to be an excellent organiser and great at logistics, particularly with the challenging role of dealing with the speakers at conferences and events and organising the team to meet the requirements of each event.
