Client Comment

As a partner in Sampson Hall Ltd I engaged Alison from Straight Marketing in evolving our marketing strategy. As a service provider of leadership both in terms of consultancy and training this was a very challenging portfolio. Alison exceeded all our expectations and delivered a comprehensive and well thought through strategy, which we are really excited about implementing in the coming months. 
Alison researched the material thoroughly and her previous experience in marketing came to the fore.

Very professional and trustworthy she affords sage and honest advice based on a comprehensive understanding of her profession. 
I would highly commend her to anyone who wants to really get to grips with their marketing plans!
