Marketing Director

Cardiff, UK

November 2016 - June 2018 (1 year and 7 months)

At TOTM we provide organic cotton tampons, pads, and liners to women across the world. Available as an online subscription or through traditional retail channels, our aim is to disrupt an industry that has barely changed in the last 100 years. Most mainstream brands are manufactured from man-made materials full of nasty chemicals that can be harmful to the women who use them, as well as to the planet. We aim to put women's health at the heart of our choices, and make that time of the month as hassle-free as possible. Through TOTM we're trying to take some of the irritation out of women's periods with high quality, natural organic cotton products delivered direct to your door, just when you need them. #BeKinderToYourVagina

At AXA I lead the Customer Communications Marketing team, guiding them to deliver compelling content and communications that provide value to customers. Operating across business sites, producing outputs for a range of channels and audiences, this was very much a multi-skilled marketing manager role. Ultimately our purpose was to be the champion for the customer. We dealt with a lot of complex, yet important updates.

Friends Life Group

Marketing Process Executive

October 2011 - February 2013 (1 year and 4 months)

As part of the Marketing Process and Standards team within the transversal Marketing Operations department I have designed, delivered and now manage the utility of the Marketing Communications Approval Process (MCAP) and maintain the web-based workflow system which hosts the process. I am also responsible for the line management of the Marketing Process Support Analyst who supports the maintenance of the process. When the three heritage companies Friends Provident, AXA Life & BHA were merged to create the new business entity Friends Life, it was found that each heritage business followed different processes for the approval of marketing communications. In order to maintain effective controls, and evidence compliance to FSA regulations and principles such as TCF, a single Friends Life process needed to be implemented and adopted by all business areas. In addition to the development of the process, I also drove the delivery of an improved workflow system on which the process could be hosted. This system was designed to provide full audit trails and supporting evidence of marketing communications reviews, governance and control over all literature and a tool for MI production which can be used to analyze business performance and support the management of risk. A key aspect of this role is the engagement of a wide scope of the business to promote advocacy of the new process. Because of this, I am required to use my stakeholder management skills to ensure they are fully supported when using the process and appropriate resolution of issues is provided. I also provide training in on the process both to large groups and also on a 121 basis, including the systems based workflow training.

Friends Life Group

Marketing Communications Executive

June 2010 - October 2011 (1 year and 4 months)

Responsibilities as a Customer Communications Executive:
• Working closely with other areas of the business to help identify opportunities where effective, innovative or improved customer communication in line with the key business objectives could garner better results/customer response.
• To manage the creation of new customer literature and ensure that outputs are suitable both to the requirements of the customer and business.
• To ensure quality, consistency and accuracy throughout communications.
• Produce compelling, creative and appropriate literature, without straying beyond regulatory and budgetary constraints.
• Driving delivery to supply compliant documentation on time, by engaging all key stakeholders.
• Excellent communication skills to collate the range of comments submitted by remit groups. These comments need to be properly understood and applied to produce effective and accurate outputs.
• To manage the content, produce and distribute the internal departmental communication. Making sure all content is relevant and interesting for the audience, and maintains a balance across department activity. This role required attention to detail and organisation in order to complete the diverse and stacked workloads effectively.

Zurich Insurance - Zurich Insurance Group

Property Claims Advisor

July 2009 - May 2010 (10 months)

Working in this role offered me invaluable front line customer facing experience of the financial services sector. I also had the opportunity to get involved with business critical projects. Although marketing has always been my desired career area, I am glad for the opportunity I had to learn from the customer at the front line. Key responsibilities of this role:
• Taking calls from policyholders who are first notifying their claim meant I needed an attention to detail and excellent level of communication in order to extract all relevant information from the caller.
• I'd then take the information I gained and build a claim case to identify any possible money savings through use of different settlement option, repudiation or part repudiation of the claim and also possible fraud indicators.
• Our management of claims was extremely important for the retention customers. As a poor claims experience would quickly steer a customer elsewhere in the very non-loyal general insurance market.
• I was taken out of my day to day work to be part of a project team for some time. This team was set up to handle the backlash Zurich anticipated following the loss of a large amount of customer data. Handling the understandably upset customers meant I needed to understand their core values and drivers in order to empathise and offer constructive reassurance.
• Following my work on the project, I was moved to deal with higher profile policyholders and handled larger budgets in settling claims. This helped to develop both my analytical and negotiation skills when managing the range different suppliers required settling large losses.


Brand Executive

July 2008 - October 2008 (3 months)

Working as part of the Brand, Comms and PR team, it was my role to ensure that the distinctive LTSB brand is maintained and lived in all we produced.
• Day to day I would review out puts which could be regular or ad hoc pieces of work. It was my responsibility to make sure that they looked and felt like LTSB down to finest detail.
• In this role, I also became involved in some training, as I was required to teach other members of the team who produced the outputs about the Lloyds TSB 'Tone of Voice'. This was central to all we did and was important to us as a business. With an aim to be "Friendly- Professional", LTSB wanted the customer to feel like they were talking to us, even if they were reading literature. All work was designed to flow conversionally.
• While working at LTSB it was announced that we would be sponsoring the 2012 Olympics. This created a lot of work for us on the brand team as we had to design how the two brands of the Olympics and us would integrate.
• This job definitely fine tuned my attention detail as I would need to consider every aspect of how a document felt, to ensure it was right for a Lloyds TSB customer.


Market Intelligence Executive

June 2007 - July 2008 (1 year and 1 month)

As a market intelligence executive, it was part of my role to identify threats and opportunities to the business through research. I was often handling data such as market shares, customer CARE responses and advertising spend to try and see where we could save or improve across our product range. Following some research into customer retention, this quickly became the core focus of my work load, as I was brought onboard to offer my research thoughts on the retention issues.
• I would use both secondary and primary research sources to my advantage in order to produce reports and presentations to support the business.
• I also designed and monitored formulaic databases to store rolling research data for easy comparison; these are still used in the business after my leaving.
• For a long period of time I was working on a project regarding customer retention in the insurance industry. In this asked the question 'is there such thing as loyalty in the financial services, or is everyone just looking for the best deal?'
• It was this piece of work which became the basis for my workload going forward, as I researched the affect of price comparison websites and offered my advice on how we could possibly combat it. Off the back of this, I was brought on board the project team who worked to launch LTSB's own price comparison website.
• I also presented to the marketing teams my research comparing the insurance market to the mobile phone market, in the sense that switching has become so easy, people look to do it at each renewal. So what can we learn from other markets to improve our own processes?
