Ambrose and Jo Blowfield

Members of the New Zealand Marketing Association, affiliated to the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Jo and Ambrose Blowfield started THE Marketing Company in 2004. They have since taken the company international, training over 6,000 businesses across Australasia, the UK, Europe and North America, while pioneering numerous unique training programmes along the way from their marketing boot camp, to 12-week and 12-month sales programmes, to their global interactive LiveOnline training. Driven by a passion to help SMEs to achieve greater returns through improving their marketing planning and through mastering sales conversations, their philosophy is to teach others to fish for themselves rather than do the fishing for clients.

Jo Blowfield developed her street smarts in marketing, sales and customer service from the music industry, to travel, to accounting, invariably rising to leadership roles quickly. Her passion for helping others knows no bounds and her energy is as contagious as it is inspiring. She’s even juggled this with two high achieving daughters. LinkedIn: jo-blowfield-a6274313/
