She completed an MBA in 2003, including a dissertation on loyalty schemes, and is currently working for the Goddard Veterinary Group, running a branch practice in London.


THE current economic climate makes it all the more important to retain satisfied, committed clients.

Loyalty schemes have enabled large organisations such as supermarkets to monitor individual customer buying behaviour, individualise marketing programmes and increase customer spending.
