Our client approached us as they are planning the launch of their first premises after successfully launching Lift The Movement workshops and merchandise. We helped them shape their pitch, including financial modelling and helped them build a tailored marketing plan for launch.

"We approached Lesley to take on the role of streamlining Lift’s marketing and to inject fresh and effective solutions to the current marketing and social media strategy. With the opening of our own premises she has been fundamental in helping connect with our target audience. With Lesley’s past experience, she has not only helped our company create a tailored marketing strategy, but has provided valuable insight in several other aspects of the business including financial modelling. During a crucial time for our company we required clear and original thinking, and we were lucky to have Lesley on board."
"APPROACHABLE, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND PROFESSIONAL THROUGHOUT, MY BRAND WOULDN'T BE WHERE IT IS IF IT WASN'T FOR THE SESSIONS WITH WE MEAN BUSINESS LONDON IN THE EARLY DAYS."
Chris Grunwell : Founder Itsy Blitz
Lesley came recommended to me early in 2017 when I required some fine-tuning to my start-up brand aimed at the baby & nursery market.
Approachable, knowledgeable and professional throughout, my brand would not be where it is if it wasn’t for the sessions with We Mean Business London in the early days.
The brand message, ToV and overall ethos is so well received by consumers and businesses alike, and this is in large part to Lesley’s extensive work on our proposition. Highly recommended."
