She now shares that experience with her clients through marketing services, workshops and presentations. She regularly shares her advice in her blog which you can read here.

She has authored two books. Magnetic Marketing is a tried and tested nine stage Marketing Planning process that Chantal has created. She has used to successfully market hundreds of clients and help them to grow sustainable businesses.

One in Ten is the story of the first ten years of the life of Appletree. It is full of motivation and inspiration, and shares with honesty the ups and downs of running a small business, that other business owners can now draw on.

When she's not inspiring small business owners and leading her team, Chantal is involved in fundraising for The Brooke Hospital for Animals and the Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary, riding her horse along the Ridgeway and running with her Border Collies.
