About Us  

My grandfather worked for SGB and managed to get me my first job with the company at the tender age of 17 as an apprentice scaffolding designer (or draughtsman as they were called in those days) in the mid 80's. I soon developed into a 'proper' scaffolding designer and worked on projects both in the Uk and around the world in both tube and fittings and system scaffolds. In the early 90's I worked for a freelance scaffolding design company, returning to SGB a year or so later to work as the designated site engineer on the development of the channel tunnel. After that other positions included depot controller, depot manager and sales engineer, before moving into the marketing department in the early 90's. I spent the next 14 years in various marketing roles before moving on, via another role in London to working for the National Access & Scaffolding Confederation in 2008. I spent 4 years working for the NASC as their marketing manager - I was responsible for their entire marketing communications during this time and was responsible in particular for the launch of TG20:08, SG4:10, Pavement Licence criteria etc, during this time I also advised many of the 200+ members on how they could promote their own businesses, these businesses ranged in size from a 3 man company to major national scaffolding contractors - on top of all this I looked after the marketing for CISRS and was a significant contributor to the Access Industry Forum

I now offer my experience and skills to all types of scaffolding contractors helping them improve their marketing by acting as a specialist outsourced marketing person for them. Scaffolding is a great industry with many passionate people within it, its a specialised trade but one that can achieve some great results if it is marketed successfully and accurately. I don't believe marketing has to cost a lot of money, as long as its done right. I aim to work within most budgets and will make recommendations and execute them in close consultation with the scaffolding contracting business I am working with.

I believe I can make a positive difference to most scaffolding contracting businesses and would welcome the chance to have a friendly informal chat to understand more on what you'd like to achieve and how I can assist.

Please feel free to contact me for a no-obligation chat if you think this sounds of interest to you.

I look forward to hearing from you.
