As the founder of Velocity, a leading retail marketing and technology agency, I am excited to share our journey and unique offerings. We partner with large retail destinations across the UK to deliver impactful marketing strategies that span both physical and digital realms. My background in leisure and my experience as Marketing Director at a London Events Agency, working with blue-chip clients like Bluewater Shopping Centre, Nike, and BT, have equipped me with the expertise to lead Velocity to success. We pride ourselves on our data-driven decision-making and commitment to delivering measurable results for our clients.
