What We Do...


A heart of any successful business is a strategy. At TMC we aim to develop that strategy to help you achieve your business goals, as well as demonstrate the benefits of a cohesive marketing plan. Any successful strategy is built upon a clear understanding of your business and its goals which we always strive to achieve


An effective marketing plan will help you differentiate your brand from the competition. At TMC we believe your brand is king and should be one of the most important investments you make in your business. Your brand is your shop window to the outside world and should always reflect your business values.


With over 35 yrs experience in the marketing arena we have accumulated a reliable pool of professional partners we work closely with to deliver your objectives. Our associates range from graphic designers, web developers, social media specialists and producers to printers, exhibition contractors and film producers to name but a few.


Not all clients require a full marketing service but often have the need of an expert to manage a specific task. At TMC we can offer that service whether it be project managing an exhibition and all the complexities that come with it it, or just covering for staff absences.

His extensive experience covers a diverse range of sectors including consumer, b2b, trade and technical, b2c, public sector and manufacturing.
