I am a versatile, creative marketing and communications professional with considerable experience gained in the private, public and charity sectors in Paris, London and South Wales. I have excellent organisational skills and am adept at managing projects from conception through to final evaluation. I have a strong design sense across a range of media, including websites, promotional materials, corporate branding and publications.
If you could use some no-nonsense, practical help with marketing your organisation, product or service get in touch.
Based in the above, I can produce a written proposal of the marketing services I will provide to help you achieve your goals.
My customers are usually small to medium sized businesses that want to outsource their marketing and communications, either on a retained or project basis. I become part of your team, developing a detailed understanding your business aims and objectives to provide you with the most efficient solutions without the costs and risks of employing extra staff. I tailor my services to give you a planned, coordinated approach and achieve the best results for your business. But don't take my word, take a look at what some of my customers say about me.
With Caroline’s help, simple things like opening up lines of communication between team members as well as taking time to build stronger, ongoing relationships with clients, has made a huge difference. We have a clearer focus on customer service, plus our team is more productive and creative due to our willingness to share ideas and information.

Caroline has been working with our charity for a number of years now and has been instrumental in developing and leading our marketing strategy. In her time as a Trustee of our Arts Charity (The Makers Guild In Wales, Craft in the Bay), I have found her professional, driven, knowledgeable and creative. She also exhibits certain traits that I would imagine any business would find beneficial – she is thorough, has an easy manner, is intelligent and incisive and also gives you the tools and support in order for you or your business to achieve results.

We were looking for help to promote the new AB Group and were recommended Caroline Rees Marketing by other business contacts. Caroline developed a strategy for marketing both the Group and the individual companies and worked with Accent to rebrand the businesses and develop websites. What we love about Caroline is the grass roots down to earth approach that, combined with the level of knowledge, suited our needs perfectly and we feel is second to none. I have no hesitation in recommending Caroline.
Alan Brayley, AB Group
Caroline is great – full of enthusiasm and wisdom made simple and approachable. She has great questions that get to what is needed and how, quickly. Caroline’s input has led to tangible business results for FreshTies.
Ash Poddar, Director FreshTies
Before meeting Caroline the business was trying to do everything within the IT sector and this really wasn’t working for us! With Caroline’s help we became more specialised which gave us the confidence to push the business forward. Caroline also gave the business an ‘outsider’ perspective and we quickly realised which areas needed improving! I would highly recommend Caroline to anybody. Her skills are a valuable asset to any business.
Stephen Lawrance, Tech Solutions
Caroline Rees is fantastic! Her endless enthusiasm and hard work have done wonders for my business. She has developed a whole new marketing strategy for me, rewritten my website and given me loads of advise to enable me to promote and expand my business. She has encouraged me to get out of my rut, embrace social networking and use new marketing facilities without fear. At the same time as working hard we’ve had lots of fun and laughs along the way making working with Caroline a very happy experience!
Caroline has been involved with our project over the last couple of years and has been instrumental in helping us develop concept to reality. From developing our brand, understanding our market, marketing strategies and raising our profile, the support has been outstanding. Caroline feels more like a valued team member than a marketing advisor. Dedicated, understanding, relevant and extremely personal. I really couldn’t have imagined opening the cafe without her valuable and crucial input.
Over many years the ‘itch’ to start my own enterprise and leave the 9-5 working world raised it’s head with great regularity, but I sadly chose to ‘play it safe’ and refused to give in to my nagging desire! On meeting Caroline all that changed. Her enthusiasm, inspired guidance and grounded approach to business development is unique, honest and extremely supportive. When you work with Caroline, you not only receive a first class consultancy service, you acquaint yourself with a great mentor and enduring ally who will guide and support you along the path to success.

Thanks to Caroline identifying our business ‘blind spots’ we have rebranded and got a much better idea how to present our chiropractic centre in a unique way. Using a very down to earth approach she has been excellent at encouraging us to be true to ourselves which helps us to focus on what the business does best.

Caroline Rees was critical to the inception and development of The Swansea Big Weekend event celebrating Swansea’s diverse, lively evening and night time economy in Wales’s only Purple Flag area. Caroline brought unsurpassed energy and enthusiasm and was the driving force behind the successful delivery of the event which in year 2 saw a 30% uplift in footfall. Caroline has her finger firmly on the pulse of whose who and what’s what in Swansea and its City Centre and engaged multiple partners, invaluable to the success of the project.
Lisa Wells, Swansea City Centre Manager
I am always very busy and marketing tends to get overlooked or done last minute, so working with Caroline has really made a difference to me. She understands my business and has helped me be much more structured in my promotion. She has organised events, put together new emailing systems and sorted out my online presence, with a new website and better use of social media. She helps me see the strategic picture but is always willing to roll up her sleeves and get stuck in when necessary!
Caroline provided a highly professional marketing service for Shelter Cymru which has helped us to increase our profile and reputation in Wales. She also contributed to improving our promotional materials and supported other staff in the development of localised campaigns.
John Puzey, Director Shelter Cymru
Caroline Rees recently carried out a review of The Desk Den’s marketing strategy. Caroline’s process is to spend some time investigating your current marketing plan and how it fits with your service and branding. Caroline’s investigation was very thorough and as a result the marketing proposal put forward to The Desk Den was very effective. Caroline was able suggest some alternative marketing tools we would never have thought of. I can highly recommend Caroline for her honest and effective marketing expertise.
