Karen secured regular media coverage in Welsh business outlets, produced marketing collateral, spearheaded sponsorships and awards, and established a comprehensive photography library.

"Additionally, she implemented a consistent corporate identity, collaborated with external designers, generated website content, and introduced a CRM system to streamline operations and enhance customer relations.

 "Over 16 months, Karen has significantly elevated brand awareness within our targeted audiences and implemented effective processes and procedures, resulting in a consistent marketing identity."

    Director, Consilium Consulting (Cardiff) Limited
    “Consilium’s marketing was very limited and we needed someone to review our activity and in particular our LinkedIn profile. We engaged Karen as she came highly recommended from an associate. She took us through some key steps to identify what messages we needed to target our audiences, which was key to ensuring what our communications plan should be. Her thought process on engaging our target audiences and how to attract attention was second to none, and we saw an immediate uplift in our enquiries.”

Both pieces of work were valuable to us as a start-up business. "I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen to anyone that was looking to create a marketing function within their small business."
  • Mike Taylor
    Managing Director, Plastratum Ltd
    “As Plastratum was in its infancy, our marketing was very limited and somewhat ad hoc. Karen came in and provided us with a complete marketing audit and presented back observations and recommendations on what our next steps should be. "The results were very insightful as she was able to give us an outside view, and her audit has given us some extremely valuable recommendations with which we can start to build our marketing strategy.”
  • Becky Lythgoe
    Director, Greenstream Flooring CIC

    "Working with Karen has been fantastic. She brings a sense of organisation and calm to our marketing activities.

    "Karen has been fabulous at supporting us to pull together both our marketing strategy and the functions that contribute to it. Undertaking tasks that range from understanding the business and developing key messages, to campaign planning, and content creation.

    "Karen provides a consistent overview and her attention to detail never falters in amongst all this marketing activity."

  • Keith Hayward
    Sales and Marketing Director, Crawford UK Ltd
    "At  time when Marketing was not in place in any substantial form within the Crawford UK organisation, I engaged Zebroid to scope and plan the function. This led to a full implementation and ultimately to a very successful activity programme that encompassed all necessary elements of the Marketing mix. Zebroid were fully able to integrate into our business, becoming a key part of the delivery team that drove the company to further success in a difficult market; and her contribution to the strategic direction was invaluable. At implementation phase the work was seamlessly integrated into the ‘day-to-day’; and after a period of full involvement and high activity the handover was professionally handled and delivered. Marketing at this level would not exist in Crawford as it does now without the help and expertise of Zebroid."
  • Stuart Lindsay
    Director, Acoustic Applications Ltd
    "We had been planning our website for some time but never seemed to get the project started.  Zebroid came on board, and after working alongside our website developer, wrote the brief for us, forced us to prepare the information and ensured we launched our website on time.  It was exactly what we needed, they ensured, with the right amount of tact and diplomacy that we achieved what we had been trying to do for some time! I have no hesitation in recommending Zebroid – their motto should be – they get things done."
  • Jonathan Smith
    Group Communications Director, Castleoak
    "Karen undertook an important and highly focused market analysis exercise on our behalf. We found her to be thorough, attentive and conscientious.  She produced a comprehensive and insightful analysis which provided the Board with a platform for informed debate."
  • Dr Mark Flynn
    Chief Operations Officer, the SENAD Group
    "Karen led on the project design and implementation for our new Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and pupil record system. Karen’s technical knowledge coupled with her excellent people skills allowed SENAD to design, procure and implement a new CRM system in 6 months.  This also included system documentation, writing a user manual and delivering training across split sites. The project was on time, on budget and more critically, valued by all stakeholders!"
  • Neil Davis
    Vice President – Western Europe, Crawford Group AB
    "Zebroid takes the time to understand fully their clients and their market before recommending any process or activity. This ability to align to specific client requirements is, in my opinion, crucial to any company and sets them apart from others to a large degree. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending their services to any prospective client."
  • Tom Bo Madsen
    Managing Director VKR Group
    "Over a nine-month assignment, we achieved the design and implementation of a complete CRM package, new technical literature and the restructuring of our sales team in the UK. Through sound advice and real involvement these guys deliver!"
  • Helena Hed

    "Zebroid worked seamlessly with our Group department in Sweden to help us deliver specifics in the UK. A difficult task that was exceptionally delivered."
  • Ian Gateley
    Head Teacher, Rowden House School
    "Key to the success we have achieved with Zebroid is their inter-personal skills.  They have always been very realistic regarding new initiatives being implemented and supportive of us as individuals.  I would strongly recommend their services to others."
