The Client

The Goals

As a woman running a small recruitment business for the shopfitting manufacturing sector, Beatrice Bartlay wanted to raise her profile and share her story with the media, to talk about some of the huge challenges that UK small businesses come up against every single day, including late payments and skills shortages. Beatrice also wanted to raise awareness of 2B Interface as a small business franchising opportunity.



Spreckley launched a focused thought leadership and profiling campaign for both Beatrice and the business.
