Really Juice

Having known Agatha for more than 15 years we can recommend her capability and her personal commitment to everything she does. The experience she brings to bear in her consultancy has been developed in the food industry over this time. Recently we engaged her to identify suitable distributors for a new product and she came up trumps very quickly, also providing us with personal introductions. We recommend her to others wanting to develop their business in the food industry.

Agatha is an adaptable professional in the marketing area – responding to her clients as individuals first and then going on to develop appropriate strategies that suit their businesses. Her ability to respond in this manner comes from her years of experience in FMC and a genuine passion for working with people. As part of Naturally Good’s strategy to develop its online presence further, Agatha created an insightful two hour workshop for us, focussing on best practice in the area of online sales, incorporating a range of tools such sales funnels, use of social media, email marketing and blogging.

Green Almond Foods

I met Agatha at a networking event and we clicked straight away. She was so approachable and I had no hesitation in using her services to create a Marketing Plan for my business.

It was the best thing for my business to get me thinking about strategies on how to grow my business, she was very professional and had answers for a lot of questions that I threw to her, so she really knew the industry.

Not only did I get a marketing plan, I also got a mentor and hopefully a friend.
