With only a small team, Ireland Consulting’s fractional CMO support allowed Skelwith Fold to access an expert marketing consultant on a flexible basis.

‘We had a new member of staff that was in need of mentoring and decided that, in order to add value to both the individual and the business, Ian would work alongside her.
