Collaborations - Carole Lomas

Carole Lomas photo Carole Lomas is an Associate Member of Chartered Institute of Marketing and a SFEDI accredited Creative Industries Business Adviser.

She has worked with creative and cultural businesses in Cornwall for the last 5 years with clients ranging from theatre to product design, artists to software developers and from start-up to business growth. Prior to moving back to Cornwall in 2002 she enjoyed a successful marketing career with BT working both nationally and internationally with corporate and SME businesses for 15 years. Carole has experience of many aspects of marketing including strategic planning, product launch, branding and marketing communications.

On her return to Cornwall she identified a gap in the market for an internet based retail business in the regional food and drink industry which she owned for three years before selling to a local retailer.

More recently she has worked with Percy Emmett on NESTA's Insight Out programme in the South West; a programme dedicated to developing the region’s creative entrepreneurs. Carole found this such an inspiring experience that she decided to offer her marketing expertise on a freelance basis.

Carole has also developed her business and personal coaching skills using Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and is a Certified Master Practitioner of NLP.
