Vee Roberts studied branding, marketing and communications to Post Graduate level and has also worked in a range of senior marketing roles – a total of more than 25+ years in the industry. After becoming a young mother in her teens, she entered a 4 year career in telesales leading her to find her true passion and purpose of marketing and communications. Commencing on a Marketing Management role via Global Telecoms giant British Telecommunications, she then went on to spend several years working in Senior Marketing and Director roles for a number of companies, including public sector, national charities and SMEs. A period in her life which she describes as an enjoyable challenge. She says: “Being thrown in the deep end, as a single mother too, I was successfully able to work my way up the Corporate ladder. Doing so taught me a great deal about integrated marketing solutions and effective budget management”. Redundancy led Vee to take a leap of faith, becoming self employed she started her own business. Working on contracts within local government and bigger public


agencies proved to be something she really enjoyed. But still something was missing. She wasn’t free to do as she pleased. Vee Roberts decided to become her own boss working by her own rules. It was a risk she was prepared to take, fed up of the office politics and bureaucracy. With less than £100, she successfully set up her own business from scratch, using her own knowledge of affordable marketing solutions to make it happen. She was able to grow her business brand online and offline successfully. And, she now uses her 19+ years of ‘planning and hands on’ experience to make it happen for other business owners too. Her ethos is “Working smarter not harder, whilst remembering that baby steps are better than no steps”. To date, her success rate with business owners is excellent – rated 5 stars. Her passion and proven success is in generating awareness, leads and income as a result of effective branding and integrated marketing campaigns. She enables businesses to refocus their marketing efforts in a way that will save both time and money long term. Many of the businesses she works with have seen a drastic improvement in their bottom line and also reported improved perception, better customer retention and increased sales. Her clients come from a range of sectors including Commercial, Not-for-profit, Healthcare, Arts & Entertainment, Fashion, Hair & Beauty, Education and Tourism. Vee is all about serving people and gets her buzz seeing businesses flourish.
