Tinderhouse is a communications consultancy specialising in delivering high quality internet and marketing services to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Kent and South East England.
I was originally responsible for conceiving and developing the Tinderhouse service and marketing propositions. As well as delivering web and marketing activities for clients since December 2002 we have developed the business into a network of high quality freelance designers, programmers and marketers.
Developing the Tinderhouse business gave me real experience of running a small business and managing client relationships professionally. This experience has proved invaluable in my full-time work roles.
In 2008 I delivered online and offline public relations for the new Tinderhouse-developed Map My Tracks start-up. This innovative mobile phone GPS sports tracking application brings affordable GPS tracking to sportsmen and women using just their mobile phones.
