Aren Grimshaw

Marketing & Communications Consultant & Contractor

I’m motivated by a challenge.

Whether it be leading a project to deliver a three-day Conference in Budapest for 250 sales professionals, steering a fintech company’s programmatic marketing approach to lower their customer acquisition cost, or repositioning a web development company to attract larger, more lucrative contracts and doubling their average order value in just six months.

Bring me a challenge; more importantly bring me the outcome you want to achieve, and I’m at my happiest.

I take an Agile approach to projects and my focus will always be on your desired business outcomes first and foremost.

Almost every brief will break down into a series of distinct areas and tasks from which I can comfortably identify key deliverables and milestones, managing the process to produce the right results on time and within budget.

I naturally think in systems and processes.

It is through a systematic approach that I develop standards of work that can be reused and improved with each iteration. I work to build a series of processes that can continue long after the first sprint, building something that will provide lasting value for any client’s business.

I am informed by comprehensive data analysis.

I enjoy the insights that data brings, whether that comes in the form of human behaviour or sales figures. Information is the power to understand past performance and provide future growth.

Over the years my work has become increasingly change and project management focused.

It is often easier to have the idea and bring it into being, than it is taking everyone along with you on the journey – skills I’ve honed from working on projects across sectors, from the embryonic start-up to the Fortune 500.

I have mixed working on site within a company’s head office with working remotely, directing cross-functional teams and/or sub-contractors to deliver projects on a hybrid remote/on-site basis.
