It's the people that make us different
Everyone here works on strategy and capability. This means that we have to practice what we preach and don’t shy from challenging the status quo. We have no juniors. We’re a team of peers with different backgrounds who have stood in shoes much like yours.
Once upon a time I was an academic scientist; 15 years on I delight in developing strategy and capability solutions across a range of industries, from Banking to Pharma. In between I worked with amazing teams, building great brands in sales and marketing roles at Unilever, Boots Healthcare International and Molson Coors; most latterly as Category Development Director.
Surprising contrasts, I love them. Mozart to Motörhead, Donatello to Dan Flavin, I see no contradiction! 15 years of FMCG marketing in Unilever and other big firms, followed by 10 years at OxfordSM, has helped me to spot the heart of a challenge and bring together contrasting skills and ideas to find great results, across a range of clients and sectors.
I have worked in marketing and sales for over 20 years, first with Unilever managing brands including Persil, OMO and Dove before joining OxfordSM 10 years ago. I have consulted a wide range of companies including GSK, Unilever, Novartis, Vodafone and Marks & Spencer on subjects ranging from organisational capability development to innovation, brand strategy and launch excellence.
Like most girls, I'm a bit of a beauty product addict and have loved spending more than 13 years helping consumers look and feel good about their appearance in Senior Marketing roles at L'Oreal (Garnier, Maybelline) and Reckitt Benckiser (Scholl, E45, Dermocosmetics).
Having worked in both Global Strategy and Innovation roles, I have “end-to-end” Marketing Experience.
Strategy Practice Lead
I spent 17 years at Unilever and PepsiCo. Most exciting line role? Marketing Director Asia – the speed of business was breath-taking. Funniest moments? Managing celebs in those Walkers ads! Any tears? When we finally got agreement to invest in India (looks obvious now – it wasn't then!). Why you love consulting? Tackling knotty challenges & finding beautifully simple solutions that transform businesses
During my 12 years at P&G, I was lucky enough to work on flagship brands such as Ariel, experience both Brand and Shopper Marketing, and also be part of the ‘Thank you mum' London 2012 campaign. Strategy, insight and enabling brilliant marketing remain my passions since joining OxfordSM
My passion is unleashing the creativity and passion within our client organisations using Design Thinking to solve the toughest challenges and innovate products and services.
I started out in Accenture before joining P&G in marketing where I worked around Europe and the Middle East.
My experience across Marketing and Sales has covered many years (more than 10), lots of different roles (from Regional Marketing to local Shopper Marketing) a variety of body parts (faces for Olay through to bottoms for Pampers) but I'm most proud of the difference I was able to make in helping create the Pampers/UNICEF partnership that, 8 years later, is still going strong
I am a shopper marketing evangelist, and love helping companies to grow through shoppers. I learnt a lot in 18 years in CPG commercial marketing and sales with Heineken, Nestle, and Mars, in Europe and the USA, but as a consultant I learn more every day, and love to share that knowledge.
One of the company founders and until recently a Managing Consultant. I've helped businesses across 3 economic cycles on brands such as BA, Lloyds, and Cadbury, and worked with companies like Pfizer to create new business models to address the challenges of the digital age. Cut my teeth with GSK when they were setting the rules of brand building for the likes of Brylcreem and Aquafresh
I have over 15 year's client marketing experience in pharma and consumer healthcare. Before joining OxfordSM, I was Global Brand Leader for Roche Consumer Health. I have been consulting with OxfordSM for over 10 years. I am passionate about the changing role of technology to gather knowledge, drive learning and build capability.
I've spent 20 years loving Marketing the fun that don't stop (Pringles) Happy-er Meals (McDonalds) Italian Cappuccinos (Costa) Stuffed Crusts ( Pizza Hut) and Steak and Ale (Pub start-up). In my 8 OxfordSM years, I've supported clients to get Power to You (Vodafone) win with beer (SAB Miller) spread joy (Krispy Kreme) and more.
In my 20 years of Marketing and Sales line management experience I have been fortunate to work for some world class companies on fantastic brands and at times in some challenging international markets! A consultant at OxfordSM since 2004 I specialize in capability building and in helping our service clients deliver exceptional customer experiences
I grew up in brand marketing at Unilever, 14 years, on personal care brands and innovation… followed by VP Marketing positions at Redmond Products and Clairol. As an OxfordSM consultant I've worked on live action strategy and business planning, innovation and launch preparation and capabilities training for Unilever, Pepsi, Newell Rubbermaid, Heineken, GSK and Shire and several B2B businesses.
Now based in beautiful Vancouver, I work closely with our West Coast clients, from healthcare to tech to CPG and everything in between. My personal interest is in digging deep to really understand what makes people tick and using that to drive behavior change – it’s not magic, but it’s close.
I head up the Finance team and make sure everything runs smoothly. I am a Maths graduate and a Chartered Accountant – I love numbers! Previously I’ve worked as a finance manager at Capgemini, THQ and Retail Decisions.
I joined OxfordSM after 10 years in marketing. Clients value the wide perspective that I bring from having lead 100+ highly successful projects in packaged goods, consumer services, financial services, retail and pharma. My specialisms are strategy development, driving organisational change and helping clients becomes truly customer driven.
I've worked in consumer and business sectors for nearly thirty years so I've seen a lot of things. But when I get a new project brief I think, they've probably tried the usual methods and it hasn't worked – why don't we solve this using an approach they haven't seen before? Are you ready to innovate?
I have 12 years experience working in sales and category development at Unilever & HEINEKEN, working with some of the world’s leading ice cream and beer brands and some of the world’s most advanced retailers. A self-confessed shopaholic, I love helping companies build an understanding of shoppers and customers into their way of working… it’s a real game changer.
Working with marketers everywhere confirms nothing is impossible. After P&G Europe, Johnnie Walker took me around the world. I was marketing director Diageo Spain & Mc Vities UK, and CMO for Getty images and Electrocomponents/RS/Allied in B2B. I can handle 6 languages and still think the world is my oyster.
I started my career on the agency side, and then spent c. 15 years in line marketing at GSK. The best part for me was helping build the skills of others. Adding 12 years with OxfordSM, I've had the good fortune to continue capability development on live business issues, across a variety of categories, marketing disciplines, and in nearly 40 countries.
Capability Practice Lead
I look after our capability practice. I've spent about 17 years in capability on both the client and consulting sides, and have made most of the mistakes in the book so others don't have to! Started with P&G, and joined OxfordSM 3 years ago from GSK where I was VP for Global Marketing Excellence
Head of Commercial Practice
19 years CPG Customer Marketing, Sales and Buying experience with Heineken, Reckitt Benckiser and Boots The Chemists, working across both retail and manufacturer sectors. A Consultant with OxfordSM since 2013, I have a real passion for helping clients to deliver on shopper and customer needs.
Innovation Practice Lead
At OxfordSM I lead both our pharma division and client service for a global snacking powerhouse. I have 25 years line management experience across service, consumer and pharma sectors working on some fabulous brands in global strategic marketing, insight and innovation. My most recent client role was as Global Director of Creative Innovation at AstraZeneca.
I spent 20 years in marketing, sales and operational management, with small, medium and very large organisations in consumer, retail and business-to-business. Now as a consultant specialising in capability development I've never agreed more with the old adage “you learn something every day”. It's transformational. And what makes me tick.
I look after our FMCG business, with 25+ years experience on both the client and consulting side. I started with P&G, joining OxfordSM 14 years ago. I've covered most angles of most businesses, helping teams grow and win across both Marketing and Sales, consumer, service marketing, healthcare and business to business
I've been a Consultant for OxfordSM for over 10yrs across a variety of sectors and geographies, developing and delivering strategy and capability projects to crack client issues. My passion for building brands started when I worked at Cadburys and it continued with Reckitts and finally running a global business at Roche Consumer Health in Switzerland.
I've been here since 2010, principally working with some of the world’s largest Pharma organisations to build commercial capability. A former Head of Marketing in soft drinks, I'm equally at home in the world of consumer, customer or patient, ideally drawing on each to find new ways to succeed (but what I really enjoy is seeing the difference we make in front of a workshop).
After 15 years in food marketing (M&S, Mars, Danone, UB) , I've worked with government and global organisations across Health and Food – from Change4Life to chocolate, drink driving to painkillers, dairy cream to skincare - finding parallels and critical learnings by joining dots others can't see, and delivering important change across audiences and issues.
I work in our Sales & Customer Marketing team. We help companies in CPG, Drinks & Pharma get their heads round things like Shopper Marketing and the dynamic world of Retail. Before consulting I spent 20 years at Unilever, Gillette & P&G where I picked up a few ideas
I love building brands. I've looked after brands you find all over the house, whether it is in the drinks cabinet, games cupboard or medicines chest. My proudest moment is taking Nurofen to number 1 in the UK and then replicating that success worldwide.
