about us

Who are we?

MK Associates was founded in 1997 by Malcolm Castelow, one of the first marketers to qualify for Chartered status in the United Kingdom.

It was his vision and drive that has made the company what it is today, a professional, successful and creative organization with a softer side. Being helpful and supportive is equally valued by Malcolm and his team.

Over the past 15 years, we have provided successful marketing solutions for a wide variety of clients from both the public and private sector.

We believe our success has been the result of a number of factors:

We work with our clients to find tailored solutions that fits their organisation perfectly.

We understand that you want a high return on investment, so we work hard to achieve just that.

We have built up a team of experienced and highly qualified marketing people who have a true passion for marketing.

If we don't have the expertise in-house we know other associates that we can approach to help support your needs

In addition to providing marketing support and consultancy for MK Associates, Malcolm also works under various other banners, promoting his passion for marketing and supporting companies and individuals in the process. These are summarised below.

Marketing and business training is a natural extension to support businesses working to establish themselves and growing. MK Associates have been directly involved in running training seminars with a whole spectrum of marketing topics for new start up businesses to established organisations. Training titles include Winning and Keeping Customers, Polish Up Your PR, Marketing for SME Businesses, Me in the Marketing Mix, Essentials of Marketing, Upselling a Pathway to Improved Profitability etc.

In recent months, the merging of short topical marketing workshops with in-company mentoring has seen the birth of Bridging the Gap Marketing Workshops.
