PS Business Matters is a Cumbria based consultancy (although we don’t really like the word ‘consultant’) specialising in project management, business development, marketing, social media and training. We can help you when your business needs a bit of extra support or knowledge or when your current resources or skills are stretched. We have lots of experience in developing,managing and delivering projects of all shapes and sizes – nothing is to large or too small – and a practical, sensible and fuss-free approach to business and marketing advice. We don’t just advise, we’re hands on and we like to get things done!
We work with a range of businesses across Cumbria, Lancashire and, more recently, the North East of England. We’re happy to travel, so if you’re based elsewhere let’s talk!
Projects and services are priced according to the length of time they’ll take us, based on our daily rate and the length and size of the activity.
Some clients prefer to contract our services for a long term project, while others just need help with a short, sharp one-off piece of work.
We’d love to have a chat about your work, plans and ideas.
We’ll only take on your project if we’re confident we can deliver it brilliantly, on time and on budget – and we’re more than happy to have a chat about your work, thoughts and ideas.
If we can’t help you directly we might just know someone who can.
Paula has worked with Morecambe Bay Partnership on two important funding bids. From the start of the research to the final submission, Paula over-delivered in every respect. These tasks involved a mass of complex data with multiple partners and projects to co-ordinate, and were full of challenges: very tight deadlines, partners who redrew budgets at the 11th hour and other unforeseen curved balls, yet Paula handled the bid writing, budgets and relationships with charm, tact and focus. And yes, the bids were successful. Two very professionally delivered projects with a great results.
Paula works as part of our firm to provide hands-on business development and marketing support to our in-house team. We have found Paula to be an expert in her field and willing to go that extra mile to achieve great things for her clients. The quality of her work and the expertise and experience she brings to bear has helped Lamont Pridmore see a four-fold return on our marketing spend in recent years and attract hundreds of new clients to the firm. I cannot praise her work more highly.
Justin and Paula worked together with us to launch the Bay Cycle Way… it was, quite simply, a huge success. They were fun to work with, creative, knew the right people to bring in and delivered a fantastic result. Cheers! Please – go ride the route: http://www.morecambebay.org.uk/bay-cycle-way.
Justin and Paula are great assets to our team, they are professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about my business, bringing creative but practical ideas. They always take on the lion’s share of the work, doing as much as possible on our behalf and they are happy to share their skills and knowledge with our own team members. It’s great to have independent expert support and input to keep things fresh and in touch with the wider industry and trends.
Having worked with Justin and Paula on various projects over the last 5 years I can highly recommend them to anyone who wants creative, committed and customer orientated delivery. They are also a delight to work with.
We have worked with PS Business Matters for a number of years and have found Justin’s insight into the commercial aspects of marketing very beneficial. His ability to work practically and efficiently within our business has added value to the way we communicate our brands and the level of cooperation we have with our customers.
