Stephen Martin-Scott MSc, DipM, FCIM, MMRS
Following a career in marketing, sales and general management with such companies as Unigate and Diageo, Stephen moved into marketing consultancy in 1991, becoming Senior Partner and joint founder of SMP in 1997. He directly manages all major projects, working through SMP’s team of specialists. As a member of the Market Research Society and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Stephen also ensures all work undertaken for client schools and other educational organisations complies with relevant professional standards, as well as meeting the marketing and operational needs of the client.
Marie brings 18 years of marketing management and training experience in the higher education sector. She is responsible for the day-to-day management of implementing research projects for client schools and uses her experience of working in the education sector to ensure all the work undertaken by SMP, and the way it is managed, recognises both the necessary sensitivities and what is practicable. She also conducts pro bono research which benefits the sector as a whole.
Drawing on her previous experience as a language teacher and in publishing, Felicity is responsible for the management of the various design and print projects undertaken by SMP for client schools. Many marketing projects and initiatives require prospectuses, promotional leaflets, advertisements, etc. and Felicity works with client schools to ensure that all projects progress as planned, within agreed timetables and budgets. Felicity is also responsible for office administration and the smooth running of the day-to-day operation of the business.
As SMP's Creative Director, Bruce is responsible for the design of the award-winning creative work SMP undertakes for its clients. This ranges from a simple - but for the client school important - advertisement, through detailed school re-brandings - from concepts through every step of implementation - to the design of direct marketing pieces and 24 page full colour prospectuses.
