Marie is one of the rare people in business who manage to fuse commercial reality with entrepreneurial creativity. In addition she brings a well researched and structured approach to any project that she sets her sights on. In short, there are few people that you actually want to work with and, having worked with her for a while now, Marie is one of them.
Marie worked with me as a consultant on a big pitch, she was brought in late in the day with a complex brief. I thought she was absolutely brilliant – she totally ‘got’ what we needed to know and put together detailed and insightful responses which were key to helping us live the business. She was delightful to work with, great fun and always happy to go the extra mile. She really cared about what we were trying to do – continuing to share pertinent articles and enquire how things were going even after her consultation time was at a close. I would not hesitate to work with Marie again and highly recommend her expertise to others.
Having worked alongside Marie some years ago, I thought it might be a good idea to seek her help with a recent agency pitch. It turned out to be a great idea! She quickly integrated into the team and adapted to our ways of working, providing great authority in her field of expertise and uncovering some inspiring insights. Key colleagues have already asked if we might seek her expert help again, but it is no doubt more of a “when” than an “if”. Highly rated and strongly recommended!
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Marie. Her vast experience and informed business insight give her a rare ability to quickly get to the core of a business’ needs and make relevant, actionable recommendations for forward movement and growth, rather than static analysis. She is driven and highly dedicated, but also easy to get along with and very human, meaning that her business observations are always given real world context rather than purely theoretical.
Marie is a strategic customer insight expert. She has the ability to draw insight from multiple sources and summarise the key messages to inform improved commercial decision making. With over 1.4 million card holders and very limited direct marketing budget, Marie’s ability to segment our database and draw out the most fertile areas of focus were key skills when we used to work together.
Marie has the unique ability to excel in both managing complex Customer Insight projects, whilst delivering a partnership approach with the stakeholders she engages with. She has an excellent strategic approach to her research and I sincerely hope that I am able to work with Marie in future projects.
I worked with Marie for 3 years at Sainsbury’s. Quite simply, she is brilliant at customer insight. She has a deep knowledge and industry expertise about Retail in general, from Food to GM, and very deep and technical Customer Insight skills.This enables her to really add value with relevant and useful business insights. Finally, she has a brain the size of a planet and a strong strategic awareness, which she uses to challenge the status quo. I have since reached out to Marie whenever I have needed support and help with projects.
