Cherie Gibb

I work with our clients to help them identify their target market or ideal client and then create a clear and achievable business plan to ensure their product, service or research not only meets the needs of their target market but is actually needed by their target market.

Much of my work centres on identifying our client’s ideal client or market is and the simplest  way to access them once the product, service or research is ready for market/launch.

Unless you know who it is you solve a problem for, you are going to miss the mark.
