Why work with slp consulting

With over 15 years of client-side, agency and consulting experience I've had the opportunity to bring an independent, external perspective to businesses of all shapes and sizes.

To counter the fast-moving world of social media, I tap into my management consulting experience, using tried and tested frameworks to help bring structure when dealing with ambiguity.

And, while I love discussing the opportunities social media presents, I also understand the need for flexibility, pragmatism and context when working with different stakeholders across large organisations.
