How data nourishes agile marketing at Kraft Foods.
This approach, which Kraft is calling Agile Marketing, is the ability to flex with the consumer and to manage precision by getting to the consumers with the right message and the right medium at the right moment. It means moving from buying broad-based demographic targets to buying individual consumers in a manner agnostic to the medium.

Story

International PR and Social Media Consultant | Digital Strategist | Trainer | Conference Speaker
Introduction

I believe that digital, mobile and social media gives business the opportunity to better communicate and engage.  Today, companies and brands are newsrooms that need to be flexible and nimble and be able to tell a story - their story. 

As an independent PR, Social Media Consultant and Digital Strategist I advise clients and agencies on how to integrate digital and social media strategy into business planning and communications.

I have worked with clients brands ranging from Intel Capital, Microsoft, Sony Ericsson, UK Trade & Investment, NHS Professionals, The Council of Europe, Bacardi Limited, DTC/DeBeers.  With agencies ranging from Burson-Marsteller, MS&L and Kaizo to IF-Communications, 33-Digital and Zanerva.

I also provide public relations and social media training to private sector companies and government departments in Europe, the Middle East and South East Asia, including Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority, ASTRO Holdings Sdn. Bhd, Bank Negara Malaysia (Central Bank of Malaysia), BP Indonesia, British Transport Police, Council of Europe, Ethihad Airways, Everything Everywhere (T-Mobile / Orange), King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health, Transport for London and Daiwa Europe.

As a consultant I develop and lead strategic corporate communications and sports sponsorship initiatives, and provide in-depth experience of reputation management, digital and media relations and creative campaigning.

Outside of work I sit on Council for the UK's Chartered Institute of Public Relations, Chair it's Greater London Group (G+ Page) and contribute to it's social media advisory panel.
