Management Consultancy – Experienced executives can assist a business by identifying core products and processes, mapping business processes, ensuring appropriate marketing for both products & business as well as assisting with outsourcing functions that are not core to the business.
Our experience spans senior executive, middle management, project management, eCommerce, digital services, office administration and retail solutions. Whatever the business, Midshore can assist as we are more than just a financial services consultancy. We can “helicopter” up to look at a business from the top and, where appropriate, “microscope” down to the small detail that is essential to the daily processes of any business. Our experience at all levels can help any business to streamline processes whilst ensuring necessary controls are maintained and often enhanced.

His successes at an early age gave him a keen interest in the online world and the endless possibility it provided.
Sam has, over time, increased his skill set in both a Marketing and IT capacity by working for a large multi-national eCommerce company (Top 500 Internet Retailer 2016) who are now trading in many territories throughout the world, during his time in this role he was also responsible for overseeing various projects including re-writing and deploying a new SEO strategy, online reputation management, deployment of new websites, graphic design, IT systems & reporting as well as many marketing campaigns – one of which has become well known for its successes and the fact it was during the biggest selling days of the eCommerce calendar, see “How 7dayshop Won Black Friday” featured here.
Further to this, Sam has often taken ‘freelance projects‘ where he has been able to further expand on his skill set as needs of his clients were met. This work involved anything from SEO Consultancy, Branding & Design, Marketing & social media campaigns to content writing & IT Infrastructure setups. To re-enforce his skills, Sam has completed a Diploma in Digital Marketing along with a number of other certifications relating to website development & Adobe Masteries.
