Adam presenting at Business Gather

We work with SMEs (up to £5million turnover) who feel they are in need of a senior/high-level external guide who can help take their business to new levels. We advise, guide, coach, mentor and train our clients away from uncertainty & worry, to discover confidence & clarity. Away from surviving... to thriving.

Their business and marketing journey can often become unclear and feel risky. All business owners have been there at some point. Sitting alone at their desk, needing a bit more certainty on what to do next and how to do it. Knowing there has to be a better way.  

So, I act as a Fractional Marketing Director (also with decades of business and technology experience) - helping your marketing-world become structured, easier, less chaotic, safer, calmer, confident, controlled, and delivering results.

We believe that a lot of traditional consultancy is regressive and offering the same old formulaic advice. How many more times do you need to hear, "Working ON your business not IN your business". Yawn.

We, instead, uniquely help your business by focusing on creative ideas, innovation, marketing-led, alternative solutions and highlighting the need for profit in order to get you the results you need. We see it in 3 stages.

  1. We are experts at understanding complex, overlapping problems, challenges and opportunities. The nuance of making tough decisions and juggling scarce resources. We can rapidly comprehend the granular detail, whilst also understanding the top-level requirements.
  2. We use our experience, insights and creativity to generate new ideas, new ways of thinking, alternative paths to success and provide you with options (and the pros/cons of those options) so you have a clearer pathway to success.
  3. We providing you with as much hands-on, face-to-face, real-world insight, guidance, training, coaching and mentoring services that we can to enable these ideas and aspirations to be fulfilled. We can also help you source and brief suppliers, freelancers, and services in order to deliver the plans.

That's why we are called "Ooba Creative". Problem solving, ideas and innovation are at the heart of what we do. The rest are just deliverables.

Tangible Deliverables

How does that turn into real work?

  • Marketing Advice
  • Marketing audit & consultancy
  • Marketing plan creation
  • Marketing communications, messaging and campaigns
  • KPIs, Measurement and establishing ROI
  • Problem solving, innovation & idea generation
  • Profit maximisation audit & recommendations
  • Business & marketing advice, training & resources


We always aim to bring you:


We help you see through the fog. What are the real issues? What are those few things that, if achieved, will make the biggest difference? What will bring you the most stability, time and profit? We help define the actual problems that need solving (that lurk underneath) and see passed the the 'consequences', which are, often, blurring the path to success.


You get more of what you focus on. We help you focus away from the 'problem' and onto the 'problem solving'. It's a shift in thinking which makes a massive difference. We work with you to define what needs to be done, in what order, by who and by when? At a granular level. Sometimes, we can all become too close to our own project/business/team (and too concerned to get everything done at once) so that we're actually getting less done than we should. It's all become urgent and important, right? We help you break it down and navigate a way through it all.


Once we have clarity and focus, we help you innovate things. The undeniable truth is that you can't grow or rescue your business without innovation. Using Design Thinking, we can help you with any part of your business. Marketing and Sales is our forté but, whatever the area of the business, we have the experience and team to help you 'design' the plan and strategy required.

On going Support, Training & Mentoring

Now-a-days, with all the great freelancers, software and online services available, we then focus on empowering your business. Self sufficiency is key - whilst having great suppliers that you can utilise as and when you need them. Marketing needn't be an expensive in-house team any more - but someone at your business needs to have a good understanding. We provide you with the tools, insights, capabilities and support to tackle complex challenges yourself or be able to hire someone to do the work for you.

Hands-on Help

Everything we do is aimed at "behing available" and "being in the room" as much as possible. We're very much about 1-to-1 service and being there when you need advice. 

"Adam explores your business with you and helps you find areas where you can make a real impact without a huge investment. All this is achieved in a relaxed and collaborative manner. In our first session with Adam we identified the area of focus. By the end of the second session, there was a plan in place. We achieved ROI within one month and our business has bought into a wholly new approach."
