WHO WE ARE
We're Steve Paul and Kate Golby-Kennedy a couple of marketers who bumped into each other at an online networking event and ended up working together on a client project.
We realised that we had complementary skills - Steve being a "strategist and coach" and Kate a "digital and graphic designer" and that we shared a belief in the power of a marketing mindset.
We saw a rising need, within small to medium-sized businesses, for greater in-house marketing capability that would connect vision, brand and marketing activities and drive growth.
So we pooled our resources to offer a different kind of service; one where the focus is on powering up a business's marketing mindset and equipping in-house marketing staff with the tools and capabilities to deliver results.
Our aim is that when we leave you at the end of an assignment, you'll never need us back again.
What we look like
I've been a communicator all my life; it's my passion and it's been central to my career and to my personal life.
When people connect and understand each other great things can happen. Ideas can be developed, plans can be made and activities can be shared.
I bring that passion into my role as a co-founder of the Marketing Mindset Partnership together with my experience as a former head of Marketing and Sales and as a Digital Strategy Director.
In addition to my marketing expertise, I am an ICF accredited coach and an NLP and Hypnotherapy practitioner - with a track record working with business leaders and in-house teams.
Outside of work, I am an avid reader and an active musician; from time to time I can be seen playing my violin in symphony concerts.
My passion is to support businesses to grow by ensuring their marketing looks and sounds great.
We live in a fast-paced world and our attention has adapted which means a business has less than 3 seconds to grab the attention of potential customers.
It's therefore easy to understand that if a company's marketing isn't hitting the spot, potential customers quickly move on.
This is why I'm excited to bring my design expertise and creative approach so businesses can fully connect with their audiences and meet their growth aspirations and targets.
Ideas and creativity are in my bones so I'm lucky to be able to combine this with my work.
When I'm not working I am often found creating art, studying philosophy and enjoying a good ramble in the beautiful Kent countryside.
