About slp consulting

slp consulting was founded in 2014 with a mission to "help businesses navigate the growing impact of social media on their customers, prospects and employees".

Regardless of where your business is at on its social media journey, your capabilities, structures and governance must be fit for purpose and able to address change.

And today, whether you’re an SME or large corporation, social media can no longer be managed in isolation. The ever-evolving set of tools and technologies impacts - and is impacted by - multiple components, including:

  • Customer and competitor insights through social media listening
  • The attraction and retention of employees
  • Senior stakeholder advocacy programmes (e.g. thought leadership)
  • Paid media planning
  • Supporting employee policies
  • Monitoring and response to support reputation and risk management
  • Brand consistency through best practice content delivery
  • Campaign performance reporting and benchmarking
  • Influencer marketing effectiveness
  • Governance and security management of social media accounts
  • Social media management tools, as part of a wider technology ‘stack’
  • Customer service

Why work with slp consulting?

➡️ Independent: bringing an external point of view founded in 15+ years of agency, consulting and client-side experience; it makes it easier to ask the stupid/tough questions!

🤸‍♂️ Flexible: clients’ priorities can change quickly, so it’s crucial to be able to respond without fuss

📗 Structured: to counter the ambiguity of social media, I tap into management consulting experience, using tried and tested frameworks to organise and simplify

🎯 Pragmatic: I love nothing more than discussing the merits of social media, but clients need recommendations that are pragmatic to the context of their business

🏢 Understanding of large enterprises: integrating social media across multiple departments and communicating to multiple decision makers takes planning

⏱ Experienced: I’ve had the pleasure of working for a wide range of well-known brands across a wide range of sectors
