From freelancer to business owner

GIULIA DRAYCOTT

(Previously) Managing Partner Shere Marketing Ethical Communications LLP

I relocated to Surrey from the North West back in 2008 with extensive experience as a PR consultant, but few business contacts in the region. Therefore, when I was given the chance to join the SHERE Group as managing partner of my own business, it was a great opportunity to benefit from the stability, contacts and resources of the wider Group, while also running my own business in the specialist area that interested me.

In partnership with SHERE we created a separate LLP business, carrying the SHERE name.  We called it SHERE Marketing Ethical Communications LLP.  I became the managing partner.

The scale of new business opportunities it gave me surpassed what I would have been offered, or could have handled, as an independent consultant.

Despite the hardest recession ever seen for decades - I was able to create a profitable business with an enviable client list and a team of my own staff. My agency went from strength to strength and this was in great part due to the support and experience I had access to as part of the SHERE Group.
