Roxanne Grey MBA FAMI CPM
I love a half strength long black (with 2 sugars please). I believe people do business with people, I believe social media is more about psychology than technology and I believe in the power of gratitude. I'm passionate about assisting everyday people achieve extraordinary things in business.
I've worked in marketing and business development roles for the last 20 years and combined this with a love of life long learning. I can't stop! Whether it's a short course, seminar, book, article, masters degree, I simply can't get enough. I enjoy learning new things and passing this knowledge onto my clients.
As a Certified Practising Marketer, I aim to understand the customer and put them front and centre every time. I love getting to know what makes them tick, and why they behave the way they do, so we can go shopping for more customers just like them.
I'm not afraid to say no. In fact I often do. Yes, if we do business together, we will probably argue. I believe there are enough 'yes' people in our lives already. I believe working collaboratively we can push each other past our comfort zones and achieve even more than we planned.
I love the Maroons. I'm a passionate Queenslander.
I'm family first. Everything I do in business is to build a life for my family. I take a holiday every Christmas and I won't answer my phone during this time. But when I'm not lapping up the Queensland lifestyle with my husband and kids, I'm 110% about my clients. I prioritise my clients work above all else. This means new enquiries sometimes have to wait. #sorrynotsorry. It's how I roll.
I'm all about honesty. Being honest about timelines, budgets and the operational stuff but also about values. If a business activity aligns with your values, and the dollars make sense, then go for it. If a business activity or opportunity doesn't align with your core values, ditch it. No discussion required. This is what I teach my clients and this is how I operate my own business.
I use fabulous, awesome and such terms way too often. But when you hear them, I mean it.
I love working with clients who are ready to move from good to great.
I do have formal qualifications, (if you're interested). I have completed a Master of Business Administration (MBA) at James Cook University (JCU) in 2005 and prior to that I studied marketing and management at JCU. I am a Fellow of the Australian Marketing Institute and Certified Practising Marketer. I also have qualifications in the areas of training, assessing, education, recruitment and behavioural science.
My experience includes working with small business owners, consultants, corporates, government and charitable organisations.
I look forward to working with more clients in the coming years that want to connect with clients and grow from great to greater.
