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. Don't just take our word for it - you can ask anyone we work with. Here's what people say about us.

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 we trust 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.
