The founder of Bayleaf Solutions who dedicates every day to providing exposure for the change-makers of the world through reputation & recognition services.
My focus is on bringing a spotlight to the individuals and businesses by creating and maximizing opportunities to showcase success & contribution.
My early career as a senior executive with global corporations in emerging and developing markets allowed me to experience a vast array of cultures across Europe, US, Latin America & Asia.
In external-facing roles working with suppliers, governments and media, the resulting global perspective helped me to appreciate that often the difference between success and failure is exposure. The ability to have wider communities see, understand and support outstanding work and the businesses or individuals delivering it can provide the impetus for further success.
I decided to use my specialist skills and work with an exceptional team of writers and journalists to craft profiles and tell stories could ensure these pillars of the community, innovators and entrepreneurs are recognized and supported. Now, we work with hundreds of people and organisations to gain the recognition they deserve by sharing their narratives in the right places and with the right people.
I work with clients from local charities, community heroes, to high-profile individuals and international businesses. Each client receives the same level of skill, discretion and attention – no matter the scale of the contribution and impact.
We believe reputation is best built slowly and authentically over time. My team look at the whole picture from digital presence (like personal websites and social media) to traditional placements like awards and press. And when it comes to recognition, we make sure than no stone is unturned in finding the facts or the angles which might make the difference.
My colleagues & I undertake ongoing professional development in the fields of PR, media engagement and personal branding to ensure we’re at the top of our game.
Our network today involves supporting the best innovators, leaders and philanthropists with a range of legacy-building interventions like executive CVs, business awards, personal honours and reputation management services.
Who do we work with?
We don’t ever publicize that. The discretion expected by our existing clients overrides any short-term marketing impact we obtain by dropping names. Those that need to know, know by word of mouth. But never our mouth.
