Welcome to Spring Thinking Marketing Consultants.
Five Successful Years Helping People Like You
Managing director Danny Herbert here, wildly celebrating 5 busy years helping dozens of busy corporate and agency folk with their ever-changing workloads.
I offer you brand consultancy, communications planning, customer insight & research, strategic advice and training, creative idea generation, marketing supplier reviews and hands-on project support. My 16 years director level advertising experience, before going solo, supports all this.

“Numark have called on Danny’s experience and advice on a number of projects: general marketing and advertising; research projects and trade marketing - all designed to help enhance our company profile to our trade audience, pharmacists, and to their customers/patients. Danny has delivered on all projects with the same enthusiasm and excitement he had when he first took the project on. He is trustworthy, instinctive, reliable and flexible… I would have no hesitation in recommending Danny not only for his experience, intellect and insights, but also for his charming, embracing personality.”

“Here at Massey Ferguson, as Market Services Manager for the UK and Ireland, I hired Spring Thinking as support for a long-running internal marketing project. This involved setting strategic priorities with our senior team and then ongoing project management to ensure delivery. All the input we received has been of excellent quality and I would recommend Danny highly as a result. He continues to act as a supplier to Agco in 2012.”
Tony Cox, Manager, Dealer Development, UK & Ireland
“Danny provided truly excellent insights to enable Barclays to effectively target and execute our marketing campaigns. He is incredibly knowledgeable and his intellect is an asset in any project. But, perhaps more importantly, he’s just a great guy to work with. Passionate. Sensitive. Positive. Caring. I look back on our time working together with great affection.”
Claire Salmons, Head of Positioning, Barclays Bank plc, London (2000-2003)
“I used Spring Thinking, whilst running my long established recruitment consultancy Big Fish, to help my senior team assess our competition and develop brand messaging for the future. Danny has a lot of experience working with different clients and can take on information and develop insights rapidly, as well as being great to work with. I’d highly recommend his company for anyone who needs an external viewpoint to help them understand their business and opportunities.”
Nicola Kleinmann, Managing Director, Big Fish Search and Selection (2003-2011)
“WPR is one of the largest PR agencies in the Midlands and has used Spring Thinking regularly since it was founded. Our staff have benefited from training in presentation development and delivery, as well as in strategic thinking, both being areas in which Danny offers genuine expertise. We also trust his judgement as an adviser to ourselves and our clients, when customer insight or strategic decision-making is required.”

“Shearwater Rock is a project management business operating across the industrial and property sectors. On behalf of the Design Council, Danny expertly helped our management team to review our overall business aims and ambitions. He approached this task in a structured and challenging way, which enabled us to gain a clear picture of where our company wanted to be and what needed improving to achieve it… Danny’s expertise and enthusiasm helped us immensely.”
