Clare Methven

Role: Founder

A background in both agency and in-house marketing roles with a strength in positioning, brand, public relations and the written word. 

Fifteen years of running an integrated agency and leading client-facing teams has given her a clear view of the frustrations felt by small and mid-size business owners about marketing and how fragmented their approach can be, and how much there is for them to gain by opening themselves up to a professional strategic marketing approach. Hence the formation of The Marketing Centre which gives business owners a means of getting access to these skills and the experience needed to make this happen, on an affordable part-time basis.
