Laura launched her company Chroma Marketing in 2018, and has since worked with over 100 SMEs and non-profits to help them build their marketing strategy. Laura launched this business while starting her final year at university, and working two part time jobs. The idea for Chroma came around when Laura, having worked in agencies and volunteered for companies like Kirkwood Hospice, Discover Huddersfield and Uniform Exchange, noticed that organisations weren’t getting a marketing strategy when seeking out support, but project deliverables such as a website that they didn’t then really know what to do with. That’s why Chroma Marketing’s primary function is a consultancy, because they’re there to help people truly understand what they’re doing, how to do it, and the impact it’s going to have. Aside from running the business, Laura is an avid traveller, reader and very much amateur cook. She’s visited over 23 countries so far, and is on track to tick off as many cities in the UK as possible by the time she’s 30 - currently sitting at 16/69.
