I have the best job ever, because I love food, people and problem solving. I can look at the big picture as well as the detail. This helps me understand what customers want and find unique and innovative ways to lead our marketing team to develop food and brands that attract them. The marketing team supports our restaurant managers by creating compelling communications that drive turnover and increase customer participation.
I have been with BM since the beginning. Initially as a consultant, I created all the BM branding for Ian and Wendy, including the much used bartlett pear! I joined full time as Marketing Director in 2012.
I ran my own marketing and brand consultancy for 20 years prior to joining BM and won awards for design effectiveness and people development.
This quote from Julia Child sums me up pretty well, “A party without a cake is just a meeting”. I like baking (and eating) cakes! Our Chef Director, Pete Redman is my food hero. Modest and inspiring, he has encouraged me to be adventurous and as a result I have grown in confidence to become a competent amateur chef. Mind you, I still do have the odd disaster!
