A personal discussion is the best way for you to check out whether you like our approach. We encourage anyone wondering about social media training, consultancy or outsourcing for their organisation, whether you’re total beginners or experienced marketers, to get in touch for a chat.
Who do we work with?
Our clients represent a wide range of sectors. We often work with organisations in the third and public sectors; those working in, or marketing, the Arts; online businesses; PR and media; financial services and retail.
However, don’t be put off if that’s not you! In one month this year, our clients included a Mosque, a medical testing company and a law firm.
Because of the personalised way we prepare for our strategy and training sessions, all of them were equally delighted with how appropriate our approach was for their particular environment.
Many of our clients are working on a low or medium budget, and looking to get great value and immediate practical skills from their training.
What areas do we cover?
It depends which services you need. Most of our training clients are within a few hours’ travelling time of our bases in London, East Anglia and the East Midlands, but it’s not unusual for us to arrange overnight stays near the premises of customers who are further away, but who see the extra value in our tailored approach.
For campaigns and outsourced management, we’ve worked with clients as far away as Canada.
Here’s what our clients say they value about our approach:
Commercial insight. Many years’ experience of working with board level professionals mean we have the ability to get “under the skin” of your business very quickly.
Honesty. If social media isn’t going to be a productive marketing avenue for a business, we’re not scared to say so.
Creativity. We’ve developed ingenious ways to harness word of mouth for the most unlikely sectors and the smallest of budgets.
An almost disturbing level of attention to detail. For our outsourced / campaign clients, we’re representing their business online. Communications must be impeccable, appropriate and engaging at all times!

About the Directors
Prior to founding Rose McGrory, the directors were involved with helping large public sector organisations engage with their customers and communities.
This included monitoring and understanding online conversations which were happening across blogs and social media platforms. Seeing the potential of these technologies for the private sector, and the business community’s willingness to adopt them, was the inspiration for Rose McGrory.
Kate has over fifteen years’ commercial and management experience in sales & marketing.
Her career to date includes working with large FMCG firms like L’Oreal and Diageo, a spell with one of the first Internet Service Providers dedicated to business use of the internet, and working for Cable & Wireless on their Internet-based products.
More recently, she’s developed and delivered training and support around online marketing and E-commerce strategies for smaller businesses, on behalf of business support agencies in the Midlands.
“I’m based near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, and very happy to be an adoptive East Anglian – this part of the world is absolutely the best kept secret! When forcibly separated from the laptop, I like to be cooking (or even better, eating) taking photographs, and messing around on horses.”
Claire is a qualified and experienced marketer, having worked in a range of marketing roles, from Global Marketing Strategy Manager for BT, to advising charities and small businesses.

“I fill my spare time with music concerts, comedy gigs and the occasional trip back to my hometown in Donegal, Ireland. I have recently been attempting to train Murphy, our very curious puppy - the perfect excuse for beautiful walks around Rutland Water near our new home in Oakham, Rutland.”
