hello, I'm Mark at Atrium Projects.

Helping Business Grow.

Best of Both Worlds

Business consulting‘ is good at process and low risk strategies that sort of do the job, but nobody gets excited.
Creative consulting‘ is good at creating the ‘wow’ effect but often feels risky and disconnected from gritty business reality.

Atrium is unique in how it combines business AND creative consulting to get the ‘wow effect’ supported by strategic planning that is aligned with achieving business objectives. And we roll our sleeves up for the execution too.

Get the best of creative and business consulting.

2 plus 2 can equal 5

What I Do.

Plan

Understand what has been, what’s coming and how to spot opportunities.
It’s ‘insight’ not ‘research’ that sparks ideas that make a difference.

Create

Build the strategy, the service, the products to exploit the opportunities. Hands on ‘doing’ not just the usual consultant reports that go nowhere.

Deliver

Make it happen.
Run a project, deliver results – the usual stuff, but we get our hands dirty to ensure success.

Atrium Projects helps businesses grow sales.

This can cover the strategy, developing or tuning products for market, and also bringing them to market.

Mark Batchelor leads Atrium with almost 30 years of experience working with a variety of businesses from the very large to the very small. A Cranfield MBA, qualified in Project Management, Marketing and Industrial(Product) Design, Mark offers a unique approach which combines both business/strategy and creative/brand/design consulting.

Services includes acting as a ‘boots on the ground’ Agent energising Sales/Distribution partners in different countries.
A currently, major engagement is successfully helping a German Manufacturer grow B2B product sales in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Short and long term projects.

Let’s work together !

The financial, strategic and creative benefits have been significant and underline the effectiveness of the approach which combines analysis, creative thinking, business acumen and substantial people skills to deliver the best solutions. The companies effected by the programme are now delivering 40% over target.                

Dr Iglseder

Director, Samas NL

The novel nature of the service and subtle, complex relationships with multiple stakeholders meant the project was very challenging to understand and articulate appropriate positioning. Thoroughly professional, providing essential customer liaison and team management skills, we were delighted with the quality and value for money : an exemplary representative of best practice.
