Based in Wilmslow, Cheshire, I have lived locally all my life. I started 3 Dogs Digital after creating several successful e-commerce and static sites. I am a trained Graphic Designer and have over 30 years of experience in industry working as a Website Designer, Graphic Designer & Chartered Management Accountant. I have been a Financial Director and Accountant for several SME’s as well as working in specialist finance roles for larger companies including Manchester United, ITV, Holt Lloyd and Spectus Plastics amongst others.
Trained & working as a graphic designer in the early eighties, I left the professional creative world behind when I realised my passion for business. Developing a specialism for problem solving within business, I have spent the next 20 years in finance, designing and implementing corporate change programs, helping re-establish company presence in a market place and growing companies, helping take them to the next stage after small owner operated business models no longer suffice. After that I helped a growing internet retail business quickly treble in size before exploring the industry on my own.
“A digital strategy needs to go way beyond a ‘build it and they will come’ approach!”
In 2009, I took the leap and started my first e-commerce business. Using experience gained in the e-commerce sector, I identified a niche and the first website was launched in late 2009. Utilising a growing skill base, I soon realised that there was a lot of pitfalls that could befall someone trying to create a successful online presence, so I started 3 Dogs Digital to help small to medium sized businesses in Wilmslow and the wider Cheshire area gain the best foothold they could at the start of their digital experience by offering website design and build options that addressed the fundamental needs of the business. From the launch of 3 Dogs Digital, one recurring theme kept emerging, that most small businesses needed that little bit more than just a website, so as well as utilising my financial skills and experience from the finance sector, I offer design & print services to startups & small businesses.
Working in the thriving South Manchester & Cheshire area provides a great opportunity to provide affordable websites & branding to businesses at a crucial time in their development.
