The Marketing Centre and Kiss The Fish,leading experts in providing part-time expertise to ambitious businesses, have announced that they will be exhibiting at this year’s Southampton Business Expo for this first time.

The Marketing Centre is the UK's number one provider of proven part-time marketing directors which has recently launched in Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire and West Sussex and Kiss The Fish provides part-time Sales Directors and sales training to help businesses embrace fast and effective change.

The part-time concept is driven by the frustration felt by business owners at the lack of appropriate options for accessing marketing skills. It provides SMEs and other ambitious organisations with a whole new means of acquiring marketing expertise,through an experienced professional plugged-into a company on a long-term,part-time basis from a team of proven marketing and sales directors.

In the South, both companies are already working with several local businesses who were all looking for a cost-effective experienced senior level resource to supplement the existing initiatives and drive further growth. Christine Durkin, regional director for The Marketing Centre in the South, and Andrew Milbourn, CEO of Kiss The Fish, feel strongly that this approach is ideal for growing businesses, especially in time where business owners are struggling with unknowns such as a weakening markets and uncertainties around Brexit.

Christine Durkin comments: "The Marketing Centre is a well-established and proven model, already supporting a large number of ambitious businesses across the UK. We are excited to be introducing the concept to this region and have already made good traction; the appetite for our business model appears to be significant with a number of businesses already expressing an interest to get a Board-level marketing resource into a business that has likely never had this type of opportunity."

"As we know if you get great talent into your business then more often than not great things tend to happen."

"I believe there is an opportunity to work with a large number of organisations in the South across a range of sectors, and I am delighted to have already built a strong team of experienced marketing directors who are available almost immediately to help these businesses achieve real growth."

If you would like to meet Christine or Andrew feel free to pop into the stand on the 15th November, or else you can take a look at the  Marketing Centre or Kiss the Fish websites or get in touch by calling 020 8012 8281.
