Digital Marketing Director

Peter, working with his daughter Charleh, has evolved KUB into being a hybrid digital marketing agency. What is a hybrid agency you may ask? With Peter's coaching background and the recognition that sometimes people have the capability but just need training, Peter has developed KUB so that you can be trained to do it yourself or KUB can do it for you or as a mix of both. Peter is currently developing online training courses so that KUB is not limited by geography. See KUB-Academy.teachable.com

Business and Value Proposition Development

Peter runs strategy workshops for companies taking business owners and decision makers from why they are in business, capturing their value proposition, looking at how they can make their competition irrelevant, capturing their strategy on a single easy to understand chart, developing their business model on a single page and then developing a simple to understand strategy implementation plan that can be used to drive change. He was a co-creator of "Business Models for Teams"

Digital Marketing Management

Peter has helped a number of companies over the years with their digital marketing as their digital marketing advisor/coach. He has evolved a process that looks at your digital marketing as a system. This means looking at what works for a particular company and helping them to implement the right approach for them and their market. Using professional tools Peter is able to quickly see what is working and what isn't and advise on appropriate actions.

Extensive Network to get you to the People who Matter
