Kimberly Davis is an accomplished marketing entrepreneur, professional speaker, author and journalist. She is the owner of Sarsaparilla Ltd. where she pioneered the concept of "Marketing Purification" – the process of helping companies increase profits and productivity by cleansing their marketing activities and protecting them from The Flash, Fluff and Fakers.
Her passion and dedication for helping SME's has led to the recent launch of The Marketing Masters Series, a collection of full day events guaranteed to provide businesses with the tools they need to ensure their marketing is an investment, not an expense. With the help of some of the UK's leading business speakers and experts, Kimberly delivers an educational, yet highly entertaining, event that businesses can greatly benefit from.
Kimberly is best known from The Apprentice Series 5, where she quickly gained the reputation as "the nicest candidate ever" (The Guardian) and was praised by Robert Senior (CEO, Saatchi and Saatch), Nikki Crumpton (CSO, McCann Erickson) and Mary Portas (CEO, Yellow Door and Channel 4 marketing expert).
Her entrepreneurial spirit blossomed early when, aged five, she started her own lemonade stand. By 14, Kimberly was interviewing celebrities such as Andre Agassi for her local newspaper. While she obtained multiple degrees at university, she worked as the Marketing Manager & On-Air presenter at radio and television station, WVIP, for television innovator, Martin Stone.
At 22, Kimberly's exceptional writing and communication skills led her to become the youngest instructor at a leading university in NYC. She taught "Writing For Mass Media" and was highly praised for her unique style of instruction and high level of achievement with the students.
During her 20+ year professional career, Kimberly has worked on several high profile projects including The VH-1 Vogue Fashion Awards, Garth Brooks: Live in Central Park, and many more. She pioneered The Manhattanville Music Business Conference, was the Marketing Director for several large New York City radio stations, and wrote for music magazine, The Inside Connection, for more than 10 years.
In addition to owning Sarsaparilla, Kimberly has become one of the leading female speakers on the UK corporate speaking circuit and is now a regular at business events such as The Business StartUp Show. Her acclaimed interactive delivery has engaged and inspired the boardrooms of UK PLC and the audiences of flagship global conferences, right through to burgeoning entrepreneurs and tenacious university-leavers.
