Hi there, I am Lenny and I will put the ‘OO’ into your brand and marketing strategy. I am passionate about all things marketing, digital and creative design.
My desire is to help start-ups and SME’s grow to their full potential and optimise their opportunity by increasing their online and offline brand. I thrive when working with rapidly growing innovative companies. I believe a strong marketing plan is essential for every successful business.
During my career, which has now stretched over more than 25 years, I have had the joy of working in many places. My early career was spent on the island of Jersey, where fun times were had with unforgettable creative experiences working in Jersey’s most successful Advertising and Marketing Agency.
Moving on to Australia and travelling by train to work each morning across Sydney Harbour Bridge was a truly amazing experience. For a super quirky creative like me being amongst it all at Wunderman, part of WPP, the world’s largest communications and advertising company, was a massive ‘WOW’!
I returned to the UK, with a baby on the way in the year 2000. It was time to be a responsible dad and I took a role in London, designing games and packaging for Mattel Interactive. Exciting times where to be had in the gaming and interactive learning world, working on projects that helped shape the gaming industry to what it is today.
Always one for a new challenge I took my family and embraced a new opportunity running my own design and print business in sunny Tenerife. Six years of marketing, creativity and beach life followed as well as an additional family member. The fun in the sun came to an end and a family decision was made to return to the UK.
I am now living in the town of Northwich with the beautiful Cheshire countryside on my doorstep. I appreciate all the UK has to offer from the stunning rolling hills and lakes of the lake district to the ‘buzz’ of the city in Liverpool and Manchester. In recent years I have held various Marketing Manager roles and I finally bit the bullet to go on my own again in 2016 and founded Bamboo Smart Growth!
My experience covers print, design and marketing to working with all major graphic design software such as Quark, InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator, creating logos, corporate branding and brochures for clients, to digital and social media marketing, and all aspects of offline and online lead generation. Print production experience is important when it comes to checking artwork ready for print, often artwork can look great on screen yet cause printers a nightmare and look awful on paper. My vast experience ensures you will not waste money and will provide a cost-effective solution for all your marketing needs.
I never switch off, you will often catch me working late nights and weekends. I offer great flexibility, with low overheads so you will find your budget will stretch a lot further. Together with my professional contacts, I provide a service that is as good as any in-house marketing team.
During my career to date I have produced some amazing work for great clients including: Royal Bank of Canada, Watches of Switzerland, Asprey Group, Lloyds Bank, TSB Bank, ANZ Bank, Allied Irish Bank, Cater Allen Private Bank, Citibank, Foxtel, IBM, Mattel, KFC, Pizza Hut, Kellogg’s, Thomson, First Choice, Manchester City Council, Vodafone, Lycamobile, EE, Npower, E.ON, The Health Lottery and Payzone UK.
I always see an idea in everything, you may even find me contemplating idea’s whilst I am out walking my head of security – Dexter my Dog, or whilst I am cycling or running. I am a people person and look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
Thank you for taking the time to read I do hope we can work together.
