“Gillian undertook a comprehensive review of the Keystone Group before developing a marketing strategy to highlight the breadth of awards secured by the group. She achieved a real understanding of the company very quickly and our business objectives over the coming months and years. I was very impressed by Gillian who I found to be of the highest calibre, innovative and professional, with exceptional attention to detail.”
“I recently engaged Gillian to conduct some market research for the company and found her to be very efficient and professional throughout. She presented her findings in a knowledgeable and professional manner and very quickly produced a comprehensive report which I found very useful. I would have no hesitation in using her services again or recommending her to others.”

“We took on the services of Gillian McLean from Thrive Marketing & Communications as we don’t have an in-house Marketing Department and we needed someone that could come into the business with a real level of experience and expertise that we lack in-house. Gillian has been an outstanding success. She undertook an analysis of the global surfing industry and was able to segment the market and identify market trends by region and country for the next few years. She did an extensive competitor analysis which has helped us to identify our USPs, our packaging approach, and route to market in the most efficient and successful way possible. We are really looking forward to this becoming a long-term relationship because the value-added that Gillian has brought to our business has been huge. I would highly recommend her to anybody.”
