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,
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
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 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.
feel free to contact
me for a no-obligation chat if you think this sounds of
interest to you.
look forward to hearing from you.
