About slp consulting

In 2014, with over a decade of digital and social media experience, I founded slp consulting. The aim was (and still is!) to help organisations navigate the rate of change and growing impact of social media on their customers, prospects and employees.

Since then, social media has become even more deep-rooted within organisations and increasingly shapes how they communicate with customers, buy media, conduct research and organise teams internally. This means having the right capabilities, structure and governance has never been more important.

Why work with slp consulting?

The aim is to always:

➡️ Be independent: bringing an external point of view founded in 14+ years of agency, consulting and client-side experience; it often makes it easier to ask the stupid/tough questions!

🤸‍♂️ Be flexible: clients’ priorities can change quickly, so it’s crucial to be nimble and respond to those changes without fuss

📗 Apply structure: to help counter the change and ambiguity of social media, I tap into my management consulting experience, using tried and tested frameworks to organise and simplify projects

🎯 Be pragmatic: while I love nothing more than chatting about the merits of social media, clients need recommendations that are pragmatic and sensitive to the context of the business

🏢 Bring an understanding of large enterprises: integrating social media across multiple departments in large enterprises and communicating unfamiliar topics to key decision makers takes plenty of planning
