Barbara Hallwood  Managing Director


Prior to setting up Marketing Profile, Barbara had a wealth of experience in the leisure industry working within the aviation and hotel industry specialising in PR, copywriting and event planning. From chartering Concorde, writing the brochure and selling  the flights to prestigious events with leading dignitaries, Barbara’s experience was diverse and took her across the world.

In 2007 Barbara set up Marketing Profile – A Marketing, PR and Events company based in Hale.  With a young family she wanted to be locally based and very much believed that her skills within leisure and tourism were transferable to other business sectors.  This clearly proved to be the case.   Alongside the success of Marketing Profile and after numerous requests from some of her executive clients, in 2010  Barbara set up an exclusive Members’ club – theProfileClub.  The club included 100 members representing both professional services and high profile brands. Over 8 years Barbara provided a range of bespoke events for her members ranging from high profile luncheons and sporting events to dining at The Houses of Parliament. Barbara has an extensive network of business connections.  At the end of 2019 theProfileClub was acquired by Clique Luxury Events and rebranded Clique 100 Club. www.clique.co.uk   Barbara remains an Ambassador for the club, alongside her role as Managing Director of Marketing Profile. Barbara also runs a blog – http://www.haleandbowdon.co.uk
