Chris Hadley Consulting offers a range of marketing services to help organisations expand their presence in their respective markets. The practice operates as a business to business consultancy and works across a range of industrial and commercial markets. However, over the past two decades Chris has developed experience in three particular areas, namely:
- Environmental and energy technologies and services
- Consumer technology
- Industrial and automotive sectors
Chris Hadley Consulting was established in 1994 to offer an alternative for clients seeking practical marketing and strategic advice without having to resort to the use of larger management and marketing consultancies. Chris' own experiences then, and now, continues to highlight the poor service often given by such consultancies either through the use of poorly qualified staff or the inability to offer practical advice on what a client should do next once a project has been completed.The result is often, at best, recommendations that don't fully draw upon the findings of the research or at worst fail to meet the original brief.
The practice has worked extensively since its inception building up an extensive base of public and private sector clients. It has an especially strong reputation in the environmental and energy, consumer technology and industrial and automotive sectors. Here the practice has worked for both national and regional government bodies as well as private sector companies and research organisations.
Building on Chris's experience of working with UK agencies, the EU and the UN, where Chris was UNIDO's UK Technical Expert for environmental and energy technology and services between 2002 and 2006, Chris Hadley Consulting operates globally to provide assistance to organisations looking to work outside of the UK or those looking to locate within the UK/Europe.
Chris Hadley has operated in the area of consultancy since 1990. Initially employed by ECOTEC Research and Consulting in Birmingham, Chris has worked as an independent consultant since 1994. He began operating a franchise with Leading Edge Management Consultancy Ltd in 1998.
Chris holds a B.Sc. in Geography from the University of Hull and a Diploma in Marketing. He has been a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (MCIM) since 1995 and also holds the position of Chartered Marketer within the Institute. Chris Hadley is a member of the Independent Consultants Group (ICG).
