Journey and ARC MANAGEMENT CONSULTING’s Inception
The Worlds Times: What was the path you took to get to where you are today?
Abby Ghafoor replied, “My journey to where I am today has been a fulfilling one. I started as a Marketing Consultant with industry giants like BT, Yell, and Hibu, which provided me with valuable experience and expertise. Over the years, I honed my skills and developed a deep passion for empowering marketing teams and fostering business growth. I found that marketing teams in the corporate world “all swam in the same pool,” and to achieve the best results, any marketing team needs to think outside the box. This was a time when Google was taking over print media, and digital was growing rapidly. I found that businesses were too slow as they were just learning about online, websites, and email marketing. Out of this frustration, I founded Arc Management Consulting, where I continue to make a positive impact in the marketing industry and beyond. I invested time in building my networks and truly believe that this has been key in ensuring we have great business relationships with the wider community. Trust is everything.”
