About Gillian

I began my career as a Personal Assistant in Basingstoke when the IT industrial revolution began in the late 1980s. I soon became part of the support team at DEC (Digital Equipment Company) for the ground-breaking personal computers, then moved to ComputerVision to work with manufacturing CAD/CAM design software.

The bright lights of London beckoned and I joined Telecom Gold, a subsidiary of BT. This began a long career of European travel with various organisations, at this time supporting major customers such as Westinghouse and Logica using the exciting new phenomenon of electronic mail. Rank Xerox UK then asked me to join as a software analyst, using my data communications skills to the full.

After extensive and thorough management skills training within the UK part of the company, I transferred to the European Headquarters of the Xerox Corporation as a Business Partnerships Manager. Working in partnership with companies such as Sun Microsystems, Pitney Bowes, IBM, and Bell & Howell, I established mutually beneficial relationships across both western and the newly-emerging eastern European countries.

Moving to the West Country in 2001, I became the Sales and Marketing Manager for an Internet software company, followed by a manufacturing organisation which desperately needed its marketing updated. Then the opportunity to work on the Board of a European Union funded IT and telecommunications project arose, which lasted for three years and was outstandingly successful.

In March 2009 I launched Duckwood Marketing. The company provides marketing and business promotion advice, mentoring and practical assistance for businesses which do not have any marketing resource, or whose marketing departments need extra help from time to time.

Among many other local activities, I am the Deputy Chair of HantsAbility, a charity established to assist disabled people in Hampshire and Berkshire.

Duckwood Marketing is now becoming firmly established with a selection of high-quality partners who deliver the best services in the South East.
