About Think Hard

Think Hard is a business and marketing consultancy established in 2006 by me, Mark Gorman. I have over 30 years’ experience in all areas of marketing communications – including advertising, media sales, business development, PR, digital marketing, direct marketing, sales promotion and design.

My experience covers virtually every sector of business both in the private and public sector.

I’m 56, married with three kids and live in South Queensferry, near Edinburgh.

I have impeccable taste in movies, books, music and marketing.

I have operated at Chairman, CEO, MD, Marketing Director and consultant level for the last 20 years of my career.

I’m an Honorary Fellow of the Marketing Society and a Fellow of The IPA and have written three Grand Prix winning papers at the Scottish IPA Effectiveness Awards.

I’m an ex chairman of the IPA and was a committee member of the Marketing Society in Scotland. as well as chairman of The Scottish Marketing Association.

I’ve steered a cross discipline body for Scottish marketing communications called SMC Action.

I’m Chairman of Creative Edinburgh.

But this is all really dull.

The philosophy bit is a lot more interesting.

  1. Don’t know how I came across you but spend a lot of my day thinking hard too – Mostly what will I cook for our meal tonight! Enjoyed all our times thinking together – I like your Pitch Doctor section. We must have worked on loads of pitches and I remember losing the head with you as you changed yet another point in the pitch document! Hope you are all well. Kids growing up so much. Do you still keep in touch with Mr Donoghue?
    Who are 60 watt – I’m intrigued. Bye for now. Kay
