Who'll you be working with...
Catherine Hills - BA (Hons) CIM Qualified
I'm a resourceful and innovative Marketing specialist with expertise developed from a diverse range of sectors, particularly in garden design and luxury garden structures.
Supporting businesses and helping to take the pressure off is at the heart of what I do - with every client, I take a friendly and collaborative approach. If I can make you feel less stressed about your marketing and achieve your PR goals then I'll be happy.
In my spare time, you'll find me in the garden, eating pasta, exploring historic market towns or trying out a DIY craft project from Pinterest - usually with mixed results!
Helping local businesses in Hastings, Rye & St. Leonards
How it all started...
Like most graduates, I had absolutely no idea what direction to take after leaving university. I tried my hand at sales first, and while I loved talking to clients and helping them to meet their needs, I would always feel like I wanted to do more for them than simply making a sale.
One year, I attended an annual conference with a company I was contracting for, and the Marketing Department gave a presentation on their plans for the year. To me, it was the most fascinating, pioneering presentation I had ever had the pleasure of listening to, and I was transfixed.
I found my passion at that conference. I took a leap of faith and took a Marketing course. I built up my experience working for free for friends and family who ran businesses of their own. Fast forward to 2017, and I presented my very own Marketing presentation to 100 garden designers and landscapers at the Google Headquarters in London.
Now I love helping small, local and independent businesses with their marketing, coming up with fun and creative ways to get people talking about their brands and generally getting to work with some very nice people.
