About Us

Gillian 2015Hello, I'm Gillian Steedman and I own and manage Business Pluspoint.

Prior to starting the business in 2006 I had accumulated over 25 years’ marketing and design experience in a variety of private-sector organisations including five years in direct marketing with mail order giant N Brown Group in Manchester and more than eight years marketing and merchandising for international charity The Leprosy Mission in their mail order trading division TLM Trading Ltd.

From 2005 to 2006 I was employed by party goods supplier Party Pieces after which I continued to provide freelance data and content management services for them through Business Pluspoint onsite until 2012 and then remotely until 2014. [Please note: I do NOT talk to the press about Party Pieces or any of my clients without their express permission.]

Since 2012 I have been specialising in providing customised Joomla! mobile-responsive websites. For more information about website design services, click here.
