A Waltham Forest marketer has been named as one Britain’s top 50 business advisers.

Entrepreneurs across the country nominated Jo Sealy from Walthamstow as their saviour for helping kick start their small business ideas.

Ms Sealy offers marketing advice picked from hundreds of advisers from around the UK for her work with creative, food and small businesses.

Jo, who runs her business To Market from her office in Walthamstow, said: “It's all too easy for a business, particularly those at an early stage, to get distracted and lose sight of what's important to its founders.

“With good strategic advice the owner can be clear about where they really want to be in say, three years time and life becomes easier. When you know where you're heading the stepping stones along the way lead to a better sense of achievement, fulfilment and success.”

Ms Sealy has thirteen years of experience as a marketing specialist and has recently mentored book company Step Outside Guides, setting the North East London -based firm on a clear path towards future growth.

The awards are run by small business network Enterprise Nation.
