We're experienced marketing professionals with real flair for creative communications and marketing planning. Between us we have a really wide range of skills and we're a great team. Oddly enough we realise we also choose the same glasses. When you work with Rowan Tree Marketing you will deal with one of us on a day to day basis.

You may need other specialist services,  such as illustration or app design. If we need to extend the team to get your job done we'll recommend people that will suit your needs, or we'll work with suppliers you already use.

Lisa left the bank in 1995 to create a successful communications company, Foreword Communications.

She remains a director of Foreword, as well as bringing her considerable skills to Rowan Tree Marketing.

Lisa is a graphic designer too. So when it comes to the nuts and bolts of delivery she combines ideas and plans with creating great-looking materials. Oh, and a couple of decades print-buying experience means that she will sniff out savings in any print budget.
