Director’s Message


I started Strategic professionals in 2013, we initially partnered with small companies in the bathroom industry but then expanded to work with a wide range of public and private sector organisations.

As a small friendly business, we get to know our clients and their needs to develop positive ongoing relationships. We try to be a flexible resource and partner our clients in many areas of their business. We have successfully worked with a range of companies across a variety of industries but have a unique specialism in the KBB sector.

My background has shaped the company as I incorporate my academic teaching into each venture, we aim to arm our clients with knowledge as well as delivering an bespoke service.
I have worked in a variety of roles, starting in customer service, building up to marketing and product manager followed by national account management. I then opted to leave the industry and begin my career as a lecturer. I taught management, sales and marketing to professionals at various colleges and universities across the UK. I noticed that companies tend to miss the importance of on the job training and how priceless it can be.

I decided to combine my professional industry experience and my years in academia to create Strategic Professionals. A small group of trainers and consultants collaborating to direct and support businesses to reach their full potential.
