  • Tracy Hastain

    Founder & Director

    Nothing is more inspiring for me than working with innovators, creatives and business leaders who are charged, focused and looking to the future. I love the whole process – from concept to delivery – but the best bit is getting stuck in; helping a business blossom, creating brands with life and personality that customers can relate to, want to engage with and ultimately shout about! That’s why I launched Wentworth Consultancy, so I can meet and work with great people every day and share my expertise with them to build successful businesses for the future.

    An inventive, energetic and passionate professional, I have over 20 years’ experience working across a diverse range of businesses from public sector services and charitable organisations to the beauty and creative industries. I have been incredibly lucky to work with many brilliant, talented people but the most inspirational have been the two women who founded the hugely successful and award-winning Liz Earle Beauty Co. Ltd.  Working with them to build the company into a multi-million pound, multi-channel global business, has given me the drive and ambition to share my experience and support other budding entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams.

    I have learnt so much from the wonderful people who have generously encouraged and believed in me, none more so than from the young mentees I champion at the Prince’s Trust, who never cease to inspire and amaze me.  That’s why you’ll find my philosophy is all about supporting, motivating, building confidence, believing in others and most of all,  looking to the future.

    Director - Digital Eaze

    I met Tracy in 2002 when we were working at Liz Earle Cosmetics Ltd. It was still a very small company but with big plans and though we worked in different areas of the business we were lucky to work very closely alongside the two founders. The experience was a one off and the entrepreneurialism and inspiration of those two incredible women had a lasting effect and gave us an immense insight and understanding of building a successful business.

    My background is in sales and project management, starting in the aerospace industry managing the military marketing team, 30 field service engineers and covering all the logistics before moving into the beauty arena and getting my first taste of marketing. This lead to managing a digital agency before making the leap to running my own. I’m a natural organiser with a dedication to detail, customer service and getting things done on time, to budget and brief.

    Reconnecting a few years ago with Tracy it quickly became obvious to collaborate and combine our expertise. We have the same work ethic, philosophy and standards but different skill sets which is key when joining forces and for our clients. We also both understand the challenges of running a business, the different stages of growth and the steps that need to be taken to be successful.

    Our aim is to unite our skills and that of our team to enable us to offer customers a comprehensive marketing and digital service. In this time of global change and innovation we want to act as a virtual department supporting all our customers not just survive but maximize opportunities and grow.

    Sales & Marketing Director

    My background is in business management and I have been lucky enough to have worked with some great businesses from small family run to FSTE 100. With experience working both client side and agency side I have a complete understanding of the importance of planning, coordination and managing stake holder expectations when running campaigns and activities.

    Great team work and offering exceptional customer service is always top of my agenda – whether that’s B2B or B2C. I believe it’s imperative to incorporate a mix of on the ground knowledge with online information when making key decisions. My approach is intuitive, data driven and tailored to each project or business I work with for me it’s about getting the results that matter and that have a long-term impact.

    I have a passion for food, cooking and creating, you can find me under @relishlifestyle sharing recipes and food porn. This has been an interest from an early age encouraged by my mother and then latterly by the companies I have worked for.
    My current position at Wentworth Consultancy is on a ‘flexible basis’ or when my expertise is required but what I love, and the exciting thing about Wentworth Consultancy, it allows me to work with entrepreneurial people who have drive, energy and are from a range of diverse industries which I find inspiring and fulfilling.

As a photographer I have had the pleasure working alongside Tracy on many productions. With her eye for detail, creative vision and fabulous sense of humour the projects with Tracy are thoroughly enjoyable and the results fantastic.

Having Tracy as my mentor (through The Prince’s Trust) has helped to turn my business around. I started The Early Hour – an online culture and lifestyle magazine – in September and by January Tracy was onboard, giving me incredibly helpful branding advice. There’s amazing energy between us when we meet up to talk and brainstorm, and I feel emotionally supported. Having someone wiser and more experienced listen, advise and guide is invaluable. The Early Hour is now read by thousands of people each day and has been featured in The Guardian and The Times… Without Tracy’s help, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

 

Annie Ridout, Editor The Early Hour

Tracy and I had worked together before but when our paths crossed again several years later, it was a lifesaving moment!

Taking on a business for the first time, facing challenges that I had not faced before and not having any real focus of where it was heading, was to say the least daunting! But with Tracy’s enthusiasm, positivity and expertise she helped re-focus the business vision and values, armed me with a new strategy and mentored me along the way. Tracy’s dedication and passion has not only helped grow the strength of my business but also me personally.

Becky Daley – Director Digital Eaze

I’ve known Tracy since 2002 and over the years we’ve worked together on a number of great projects. Tracy always gives her work 110% and is passionate about getting brands working right. She has a natural flair for brand building, is passionate about authenticity – from big picture to tiny detail – and her enthusiasm is positively infectious! I’ve always enjoyed working with Tracy and am sure you will too.

Walking into the halls of the Prince’s Trust I had no idea what to expect. I had just come from the enterprise launch and had been assigned a mentor. This was a new step in my life and thoughts of what was going to happen when I met Tracy and would we work well together were going through mind? I shouldn’t have worried, upon meeting Tracy her amazing and bubbly personality just drew me in and within minutes of discussing my brainchild ‘Willique’ (a name Tracy suggested) we instantly clicked.
During the months of working with Tracy she has helped me to grow confident about my brand, how to think like a leader and simply how to run a business. Every word and meeting has had an impact on my life and I am so grateful to have her as a mentor. The turning point that really touched my heart was at my first launch event when she made time from her busy schedule to show support. Tracy is the person that you would want to have in your life for a life time! She is more than just an entrepreneur, a mentor and a good friend; she is one of the positive changes that the world needs when working with young people today. Thank you Tracy words cannot express my gratitude.

Tracy is a burst of light and love and would certainly make an impactful and positive addition to any establishment. She is dependable, detail-oriented and extremely personable; allowing those around her to feel at ease and themselves in her presence. Further, to this Tracy has a wealth of knowledge and experience across multiple sectors, she is passionate in all she does and strives in putting back through mentoring and education. She is a connector and by far one of the most influential, loyal people I have ever had the pleasure of working alongside.

 

Rebecca Taylor – Director of Commercial Operations Keyhole Visuals Ltd

Tracy Hastain is a brilliant communicator. She understands what motivates people and I have seen her put that into action in her work with the Prince’s Trust. That’s why Tracy is able to offer advice in all areas of business, not just narrow disciplines like “branding” and “marketing”. When you work with her you gain valuable new insights into your business and how you deal with people. I could not recommend her highly enough.

Jack Rivlin – Editor-in-Chief The Tab

Tracy can bring a wealth of experience and expertise to your brand and partners this with enthusiasm, positive energy and big ideas that will make a real difference to your brand and take you to the next level.  Tracy is very passionate about everything she does and works with you on a personal, bespoke level to really get underneath the skin of your brand to live, breathe and truly maximise it for you.

Charlie organised the first ever open innovation event for Tesco.com working with many external suppliers as well as people within the business. The day was an outstanding success and thanks to Charlie’s hard work all the attendees had a brilliant time and generated over 800 ideas for the business.

Angela Maurer – Senior Marketing Manager, Tesco.com

I first worked with Tracy in 1999. What immediately struck me about her was her enthusiasm and ‘can do’ attitude. She is like a breath of fresh air and not afraid to challenge the status quo if she feels improvements can be made – which they invariably are!”

Hannah Harbottle – D2B Solutions Ltd

Tracy is passionate about what she does and is good at it. With her fresh and friendly approach, she combines creativity and experience in helping you develop and manage your brand and marketing to offer tailored solutions that create clear, engaging and successful communications.

We have used Wentworth Consultancy to realign our business, develop a strategy and help structure our marketing campaigns so that they are more cohesive and the effectiveness of the campaigns are measured.  The work that Wentworth Consultancy has done for us has made us so much more focused.
