Sophie Blackmore, Marketing Manager

Sophie graduated from Durham University with a Batchelor of Arts Degree in Theology, and started her career working at Aylesbury College as a PA. Relocating to the Midlands in 2002 she worked in events and communications for a Management Training Scheme at the University of Birmingham, before moving into the events industry as an Events Consultant and then as a Team Manager of a busy events agency.

Communications and event experience naturally led Sophie to take on a marketing role within the same agency in 2011, ultimately becoming Sales and Marketing Manager. From a new role for the business creating social media platforms, blogs, client collateral, press releases she expanded her marketing and public relations skills to include digital media, SEO, blogging, content management, CRM, branding, copy writing & design.

Passionate about celebrating success, and an advocate of lifelong learning, Sophie recently completed a Digital Retox course from Digital Mums, focusing on key digital areas in demand from businesses today. Since joining the WMG team in August 2018 Sophie manages marketing operations and activities including strategy, processes, budget, messaging, brand, communications and strategy. She leads the marketing team in communicating to every customer why Warwick Music Group create quality wind and brass instruments – to make music accessible and fun!
