Hello, I’m Michael Evans, Chief Thinker & Do-er at Beyond-Consulting.
Following 15 years in marketing, business development and systems management across a wide range of industries, including co-founding BPI OnDemand, an award winning Oracle CX practice, I was forced to take 2 years out to fight (and beat) leukaemia.
As a result of this tough journey, I decided to only do what I really love – helping small & medium sized businesses grow, with innovative marketing.
Through Beyond-Consulting, I’m able to use my passion to help small & medium sized businesses get more customers and build better long-term relationships.
I was lucky to work with Michael from Beyond Consulting recently. In our session he demonstrated his expertise in marketing and strategy to help me plan my business’ marketing campaign. I have a clear marketing strategy to progress, as well as some fabulous top tips and guidance on how to use social media to gain results from a marketing perspective. I would definitely recommend Michael and use his services again.Kirsty Swan – Principle Partner, Swan Craig Solicitors
Michael was really helpful at providing direction for how we, as a company, we should set up and manage our automated marketing solution. I’m completely new to automated marketing and Michael explained all the features, benefits, regulations, and gave a number of workable solutions with the pros and cons of each. He’s suggested a very reasonably priced solution that will do the job perfectly. I’m very grateful for his help, and I recommend him to anyone who needs guidance on how to optimise their marketing process.Jack Lee – Sales Manager, Menarini
I hired Michael as we needed a very experienced marketing expert who had a deep background in digital marketing and platforms and particularly someone who was able to help translate my niche technical domain knowledge into content which resonated with a much broader, non-technical audience. Michael is not only extremely capable at delivering (and extremely quick!) but courteous, professional and adds value way beyond the brief. I would highly recommend his services.Martin Paton – CTO Kin+Carta Connect
Michael is one of the very few people who have the ability to deal with strategic thinking whilst delivering tactical results. He always asks the right questions to make sure that everybody is making the right decisions. Michael is happy to question anyone top to bottom in a business and that is why he is so successful. When you are looking for results based marketing along with Strategic thinking, he is the right person.Fred Wilkinson – CEO
Michael was always full of zeal and energy to get the job done, with a solid marketing plan, methodology and reasoning behind his motives. If that plan required questioning existing ways of doing things, or convincing (senior) management, I knew I could always rely on Michael to get the results that our channel required.Adam Chapman – Director Global Marketing
Michael is a results oriented individual who shows great commitment, attention to detail and a real desire to get the job done. He has a clear understanding of Channels and knows how to market to them and through them. He can bridge the gap between marketing and the sales function to ensure a cohesive approach to market – I would not hesitate to recommend him.Dale Peters – MD
Michael demonstrated excellent channel management skills. He can balance strategic and tactical demands well, and although his experience with me was primarily marketing focussed, he was clearly highly sales orientated in his activities.Mark Whitby – Senior VP Consumer
Michael is a driven marketing professional who has a deep understanding of the channels to market and has a successful record of developing and executing both strategic and tactical marketing programs and initiatives.James Moon – Commercial Director
Michael is a highly dedicated and diligent marketing professional. He is extremely personable, articulate and a good communicator. He has a good head for strategy and is able to develop plans to address objectives. He is a good team player and a leader. I enjoyed working with him.Sanjay Kumar – Director Product Marketing
