Ramona’s passion for helping businesses and people GROW started 15 years ago after a very successful career in Fleet Street, where she worked on the Times and Sunday Times and the Mail on Sunday. Fleet street is where Ramona learnt her training, coaching and mentoring skills as well as how to generate substantial revenues in a very challenging sector. Ramona learnt to work with her people to create sustainable teams that knew how to balance the commercial with the cultural. She made sure they had lots of fun whilst still generating revenues and growing the business.
Today Ramona is still passionate about helping businesses GROW and she works with her clients helping them to clearly understand what their offering is and how to position their brand in the market. She works with them to create a sales strategy which will align itself with the vision of the business, and create the necessary shifts in skills, mindsets and behaviours to increase revenues, profit and build equity in their businesses.
Ramona also coaches & mentors Senior Executives, Consultants, and individuals to build on their personal brand, and understand their positioning in the market in order to gain a competitive advantage and become more visible within their organisations or to help them move on and achieve their goals when looking for new and different opportunities.
