Adrian Moss, former Director, Tektronix Europe
‘ I commissioned Janet Downes of Downes
Strategic Marketing to carry out a consultancy project for us and
deliver a series of marketing courses.
Without doubt Janet’s experience and knowledge coupled with her
skills at coaching were instrumental in making the courses
and the consultancy project a great success.
Janet has that rare ability of being able to mix strategic and
tactical thinking – and apply it practically.
First class strategic thinking - yet totally practical in her
Excellent planning. Thorough delivery with an enthusiastic style that
ensured the course was a great success’
Marc Bray, Managing Partner, vivas ltd
' I was a
delegate of the course you presented entitled Effective Marketing
- You quickly levelled the playing field in
terms of bringing all delegates to a similar level of basic marketing
understanding and then moved us forward to learn at a similar pace.
- You balanced two competing needs very well
indeed: the need for flexibility to address the key points raised by
delegates (from various market sectors as I note above) versus the
need to keep to schedule. Your time keeping was excellent, covering
all of the planned items and the ad-hoc interaction was highly
- The syllabus was demanding, spanning key concepts and tools in basic
marketing areas as well as the most recent developments, in
relationship management thinking for example.
- Our learning was enhanced due to the way you
clearly brought together sound theoretical knowledge and practical
experience. Also, you knew your stuff, if I may say, when you needed
occasionally to stray off the subject of pure marketing and touched
on related wider business issues. This was useful to delegates and
added value for us.'
Roy Stew, Managing Director, The Migration
'Although I promised to 'heckle'
(constructively) during your presentation I admit I was so engrossed
that I forgot.
The whole session was excellent! The content was 'right on the button'
and the delivery flawless. I understood it all, it all made eminent
sense and the hand-out material was an added bonus.
Well done and a thank you from one of your new fans.'
