I just cannot believe how time flies when you do something you love.

The company has contributed to Sunderland businesses, with clients including a CCTV installation specialist, payroll agency, Community Interest Company, fitness trainer, school grant application writer, office furniture supplier and the public sector.

“STO Consulting is growing more successful every year and it is gratifying to be able to help local businesses thrive,” said Graeme.

“I just cannot believe how time flies when you do something you love.

“With years of experience helping various other businesses succeed, it is nice to find the time and celebrate the growth of my own.

“I am also a huge believer in contributing to the local economy – hence I will be celebrating in a local pub with my team.”

STO’s biggest local success story was helping Sunderland’s Fintech company ProForecast launch its new business forecasting system.

It now has clients on board including major regional accountancy firms and is in talks with a potential partner that would see a significant boost to early growth.

Graeme helped the company create a robust marketing strategy and tactical plan as well as carrying out research that tested out the product with many very helpful accountants.

Steven Katirai, ProForecast managing director, commented about STO’s services: “This plan has given us the solid platform we required to enable ProForecast to bloom and achieve our goals by giving us a competitive advantage.”

STO Consulting operates from offices around the region including Sunderland, Newcastle and Middlesbrough. The company provides marketing strategy workshops, advice, and market research as well as personal branding.
