Meet a C2G Consultant
 
Dina Kelly has been a long-term
consultant with C2G, working on a variety of projects.  Below, you can read a bit more about Dina, and her experience as a C2G Consultant.
 

1.  How did you hear about Consultants 2 Go?

I was introduced to C2G by my former colleagues that worked in the Financial Marketing Industry. After taking a few years off to raise my family, I wanted to return to the workforce and was looking to do consulting work. I had a working relationship with the principals at C2G and I continued to follow their success through social media. I knew that C2G had a good reputation in providing professional marketing services to some of the major Financial Marketing companies. When it was time to return to work, I reached out to the C2G team and I started an assignment immediately. I have been with C2G now for over 4 years.
 

2.  What types of employment/opportunities have you had with C2G?

Having been a seasoned employee at American Express,  all of my assignments have been with Amex. My experience working with proprietary marketing databases, direct marketing, and social media, enables me to work across many different organizations within Amex. It was so nice to return to a familiar environment, work as a Marketing Consultant and be able to contribute immediately to their overall business needs.  
 
3.  What do you like about working with C2G?
What I enjoy most about working with C2G is that I work on different assignments every 3-6 months. Although the client expectations are high and the learning curve is short, you have to dive into an assignment quickly with minimal training. Having the opportunity to work across different projects enables me to quickly learn the different facets of the business.

4.  How has C2G helped with your career?

Being employed as a C2G Consultant,  you have to stay on top of your game and constantly be aware of the changing marketplace. Besides having over 15 years direct marketing experience, I continue to keep my skills current, especially with digital marketing on the rise. I have attended Digital Marketing Classes to deepen my knowledge with the digital channels. In addition, I continue to research the financial products and offers available through the different marketing channels. I self-train by using learning tools and programs available and network with colleagues on a daily basis to stay marketable. C2G has provided me with
wonderful marketing assignments that have enabled me to become a successful Marketing Consultant.
