Who is Bryony Thomas?

Bucket Lady. Elephant Spotter. Multi-Million Pound Cat Thief.

The Bucket Lady

Bryony Thomas is one of the UK's foremost marketing thinkers. She is the author of Watertight Marketing, which has been in its best-sellers list consistently for over five years, with no gimmicks. This ground-breaking book has been described variously as "the entrepreneurs' essential marketing manual", "a work of genius", and "a licence to print money". Centred on replacing the ubiquitous sales funnel diagram with a better metaphor of a Bucket, Funnels and Taps, Bryony is often known as The Bucket Lady.

The Elephant Spotter

She has a disarmingly honest working style, that means that people have often seen her as a marketing confidante more than a consultant. Landing as the divisional director of marketing for FTSE 100 company, Experian, at the age of 28, Bryony quickly developed a knack for asking the questions that matter. If there's something that needs addressing, you'll find Bryony pointing to it. This earned her the nick-name, The Elephant Spotter

The Multi-Million Pound Cat Thief

Bryony is also an in-demand professional speaker for business audiences wanting to understand how to deliver sustainable sales results. Whether it's a boardroom, team day, or a large conference venue, Bryony can be trusted to inspire, engage and entertain. But, more importantly people will leave her talks with immediate actions to take. She has a unique and memorable speaking style, and is often heard describing how to build multi-million pound businesses in the same way as you'd steal your neighbour's cat. And so, is known as The Multi-Million Pound Cat Thief.

Bryony's Journey

In 2008, Bryony started the journey towards what is today the Watertight Marketing Methodology, working with ambitious growing businesses delivering 12-month marketing transformation programmes. Through her book, her speaking, her events and her hands-on support, Bryony Thomas now gives small business owners the clarity and the structure to step off the roller coaster. To get their marketing to put their business on a sustainable upward curve. Bryony Thomas is The Watertight Marketer.

She does all this part-time around her family, and can be often found playing in the sand pit with her daughter or snuggled up with her soppy grey tom cat, Dylan.

Oh, and, she also loves a strong cup of tea. Milk, no sugar. And, if you're getting the biscuits in, Bryony will have a pink wafer!

"Bryony spoke at one of my recent events and was fantastic. Although the event only allowed for a short slot, she managed to give unbelievable amounts of content, which people started to implement into their businesses immediately.
