Tell us about your business tweet-size:

We are a niche business development and marketing agency specialising in the service sector. Providing complete solutions for our clients.

What has been your biggest challenge?

Growing a team with the same ethos as me, a can do attitude and constantly striving for perfection.

What has been your greatest success?

Getting to year 3...

What piece of advice do you wish you had known when starting out?

Always read the small print.

Why do you consider long-term strategic advice important to business success?

We all work in our businesses but rarely enough 'on them'. By having long term strategic advice it takes you out of your business for long enough to be objective.

If you had a superpower what would it be and why?

The ability to clone myself. I often find that I need to be in more than one place at anytime so this would be great!
