“My aim in life is to keep everybody happy, because let’s face it, it’s a hard life between meals.”
There’s not much Gillian doesn’t know about Marketing. It’s in her blood. Her father worked in Sales Promotion in the 70s and 80s and often brought a marketing brief home to the family dinner table. So much more fun than “I spy”!? Still at school but between exam years, Gillian’s Dad thought it would be a good idea to keep her out of mischief by making her sit the ISP Diploma. So at 17, she became one of the youngest people ever to have sat and passed a diploma in Sales Promotion. Fresh out of university, with a Joint BA Honours in Business Studies and Spanish, Gillian joined KLP as a trainee graduate. Over the years she has worked with clients from various industries including: Retail Banking (Abbey; NatWest; RBS), FMCG (Britvic; PepsiCo; Nestlé Cereals; Lever Faberge; Unilever), Alcohol (Morgan Spiced; Freixenet) and Pet Foods (Nestlé Purina).
She has two nippers who are the love of her life and she sings in a band called The Varlies.
