Vanessa Allen

Director, Founder, Chief Margarita Influencer.

Vanessa’s 20+ years experience in marketing ranges from public relations and promotions to event manager and television producer.  She combines this knowledge with her love of marketing and passion for business to create marketing strategies that combines a strong brand and ROI.

While working with a diverse range of clients she found her passion in marketing to women and studied how they impact buying habits and hold the purse strings for over 80% of all consumer purchase decisions.

Vanessa also developed the SUMMMIT 7 step marketing method to help small and medium businesses with skills to improve their marketing.  In her spare time enjoys teaching this, or kitesurfing, but mostly the former because her kiting skills are average at best.

Vanessa loves data, being organised and communication; and uses this combination (and a great team) to whip up great marketing strategies for clients that cover all key messaging and will deliver an ROI.
