Fresh challenge for local marketing expert

After a fantastic 7 year stretch at the Hive (youth arts charity and community venue) in Shrewsbury - Habib Malik-Mansell has taken the bold leap to become self-employed - setting up an exciting new business which aims to deliver affordable, reliable and available assistance to Shropshire's small businesses when it comes to all things marketing and promotion.

NewBold Horizons has now officially launched with an eclectic and interesting array of clients. These include Shrewsbury based language school Bright Owls of Wyle Cop - along with DASH, Disability Arts in Shropshire. Habib is also working with Shropshire Wedding DJ (aka DJ Buzzword) in addition to several other independent businesses which include Shrewsbury based locksmith St Locks, as well as the unique Fish House in Ludlow - a traditional fishmonger with oyster bar.

Speaking of his new business, Habib says "I'm really pleased to have now unveiled my new venture - which presents an exciting next chapter both professionally and personally. The aim of NewBold Horizons is to offer one-off or regular monthly support which is tailored towards small independent businesses and sole traders. The rates are kept affordable, to ensure the support which I can give is realistic and accessible to even the smallest of budgets."

Whilst Habib is based in Ludlow as a hometown, his support is available to businesses and organisations across the county, including in Shrewsbury.
