HELLO & WILLKOMMEN

WHO IS FREIA

I’m a German-British agency growth consultant with 13 years of experience in growing and improving agencies. I'm the proud owner of two needy cats, I love mountain biking, and am slightly obsessed with sunshine. Bonus fact: I have German/British citizenship and had to pass the 'Life in the UK' test if you ever needed a pub quiz partner. But let's talk about work...

It's time for unconventional agency consulting

In a room of 100 agency consultants, I will undoubtedly stick out like a sore thumb: I'm a female millennial in my 30s, I'm German & British, and I have never owned or sold my own agency. I was the person responsible for the delivery of complex strategic initiatives, moving between the Board of Directors and operational teams to deliver changes. I started my business to support agencies with the hands-on delivery of their goals, rather than top-level advice. 

I want you to succeed

I am on a mission to simplify agency decision-making and make growth and change accessible and doable for all agencies. It pains me when agencies work with consultants and are left without arguably the most critical part: a plan for implementation. I bring clarity to my clients’ growth and change challenges by providing focus and simplicity to their never-ending list of priorities, and I finish any engagement with actionable steps that deliver the desired change.

We need to keep things simple

“Be Reyt” is Yorkshire slang for “It will be all right”, which is my company name and motto, and helped me grow an agency offering from 0-100 people with no previous management or ops experience. Be Reyt is similar to the German word Bereit ('ready') and encapsulates how I approach things. I believe in simplicity and a can-do attitude, no matter how big the challenge is.

AGENCY BACKGROUND

Delivering strategic goals & change programs

I was responsible for delivering the strategy and change programs for one of the most successful 150-strong UK digital marketing agencies, and Times Top 100 Company. I worked with the Board and senior leadership team to translate our vision and targets into workable initiatives and implement changes across sales, marketing, people, operations, and client services. My work directly impacted EBITDA, client retention and growth, pitch closing rates, and revenue.

Managing hyper-growth

Between 2010 - 2017, I grew my own digital PR and content department and service offering from 0-100 people with no previous experience. My department flourished, won awards, supported peoples' progression, and was sustainable and profitable. We delivered global campaigns across 40 markets. During this time, I was ranked 7th in The Drum's 30 Under 30 Women in Digital. And yes, I wish I was still under 30.
