Hello! I’m Jane Cuthbertson, Marketing Pro and Business Consultant.

I am the founder and owner of BConsultingUK (a trading name of JC Consulting (Scotland) Ltd), a marketing consultancy business based in Stirling, Scotland.

My specialities are marketing transformation, business improvement and growth. I'm always keen to share my knowledge and experience to help businesses succeed. Clients who work with me get help with developing and implementing effective and efficient marketing solutions for sustained, profitable business growth.

As a freelance independent consultant, I have a network of other business and marketing consultants that I draft in as expert support when your business needs it. That way my clients get the right marketing support as and when it's needed, without the hefty price tag.

Unique in Scotland, I am also supported by the Watertight Marketing™ accredited network which has of some of the UK's leading Marketing talent.

Clients I help include SMEs and business owners who are too busy running their business or who lack the business and marketing knowledge to grow to the next level, as well as large corporates who need to bolster their resource to deliver or who are looking for a marketing specialist.

My Experience

Following my entrepreneurial spirit in my late teens, I ran my own business doing bespoke artificial and dried flower arrangements and taught piano in the evenings.

Fresh out of university, I landed a product marketing job with RBS, then a business development role with Norwich Union/Aviva, before joining Prudential where I have done a great variety of things - both as an employee and as a consultant. Over the last few years I’ve worked with a number of smaller businesses too, helping them with their marketing and business development.

Using the latest and greatest marketing techniques, underpinned by sound strategic marketing analysis and planning, I have over 17 year's hands on experience. To give you a flavour of what that experience covers...

  • management of the strategic overhaul of an entire product range
  • launching new products
  • revamping brands
  • leading marketing innovation projects
  • setting and monitoring sales targets and pricing
  • developing business cases, business solution documetns and tender (RFI/RFP) documents
  • delivering successful marketing campaigns
  • conducting market, competitor and customer research
  • getting down and dirty with data and segmentation
  • mapping buyer behaviour, customer journeys and paths-to-purchase
  • driving customer experience (CX) and improvement programmes
  • leading marketing operations and efficiency projects
  • management of marketing plans and content runways - including management of the key account marketing support for 23 key accounts for a FTSE100

My reputation is for delivering results from marketing and business solutions I recommend, as well as smashing targets. A couple of highlights include annual sales (volume and value) targets for a new product launch being achieved within a few months and being the dedicated marketing manager supporting a top performing sales region. I’ve also reviewed and improved systems and processes, identified six-figure cost savings and ways to reduce speed to market.

Some fundamentals!

I have been a Chartered Marketer since 2007 and have over 17 years’ experience delivering results driven marketing and business development solutions.

I hold the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Postgraduate Diploma, the CAM Diploma in Digital Marketing and have a BA Hons degree in Marketing and Business Law from the University of Stirling. I am also one of a select network of Watertight Marketing™ Accredited Consultants.

I'm also familiar with Six Sigma methodology, Agile project management and have a Certificate in NLP.

And when I'm not helping businesses grow...

Away from work, I spend my time with my award winning kennel of gundogs. I travel the length and breadth of the UK, showing and working my dogs - usually picking up a few rosettes or trophies along the way. I also enjoy photography, music, going to the theatre and I’m a bit of a foodie too.
