Head of Growth
I've been working on CRO next to other areas of growth for the last four years and when done correctly, it never disappoints with its impact. I'm happy to walk through everything from getting started with CRO to conducting good research (80% of CRO is research) to improving your win rate.
I've worked remote the last year so whilst I don't have a huge amount of experience I've learnt a lot along the way so always happy to share ideas and brainstorm around challenges.
I'm an all round growth marketer so I'm always happy to talk more general growth strategy and process with a strong bias towards making things practical and actionable.
It can be hard knowing whether your idea is the right one, especially as you are so close to your idea. I'm always happy to take a step back with you and look at what stage your idea is in and how to best validate it. There are a few common pitfalls to watch out for when validating your idea based on my experience so I'll help you avoid those too.
Finding Product Market Fit is hard. When I started at RockBoost and Heights they both didn't have product-market fit and I've also had multiple consulting clients without PMF (those are tough conversations!). I'm happy to help you figure out what your riskiest assumption is, how to go around finding PMF and also managing stakeholders perception of growth whilst finding PMF.
I'm not a researcher, but I am constantly learning from our customers. I love MVP research setups from interviewing, to forum mining so that you are constantly learning from the end user. We even have an internal podcast with all our customer interviews to make sure everyone is constantly listening to the end user.
I built and had a team of 15 growth hackers at RockBoost, right now I'm building the growth team at Heights. I've had a lot of learnings and made a lot of mistakes whilst hiring that I'm happy to share to save you learning it all the hard way.
Growth is at least 90% mindset. I love identifying small mindset changes that will help you or your team members further, e.g. seeing failures more as learnings, 80/20 rule, getting things live faster, testing smaller, etc. If you want to talk about imposter syndrome feel free to reach out, I've struggled with it (and still do at times), so know how hard it can be.
Having worked with start ups to corporates I know how frustrating growth can be at time. Feel free to vent and get advice on dealing with stakeholder overload, lack of focus, silos between departments, etc.
We use Google Optimise for our experiments and I believe it is a good platform to start with but has its limitations. We can always walk through everything from should you start testing, is it the right tool for you and the limitations to keep in mind.
I've used Facebook for a multitude of clients as a consultant and for Heights where I work now. We've tripled the number of customers via Facebook through a few key changes which I can share and you can test for your business.
I've used Semrush at both RockBoost and Heights. I definitely know how to read a site audit, keyword research, do competitor and backlink analysis but also feel like I'm still learning the more in-depth reports.
Hotjar is honestly amazing and most businesses don't use it enough. We can talk through everything from setting it up to how to use the insights from it and how to combine it with other data sources to build stronger hypotheses.
I've used GA since 2015, we use it less at Heights (we switched to Heap) but I still know the platform well and use it on a weekly basis. I'm happy to talk about how to set it up for success as well as custom reports that are interesting to look at (depending on your industry).

Daphne was fantastic. Honest and to the point. I took away some valuable items I could put into action right away.
Amazing information. Happy to share and a good chat! Wish you all the best in the future!
3rd session with Daphne - powerful as always! Covered hiring and digital campaign focus this time. Walked away some good insights on how to look at content writers and the importance of holistic campaigns.
Taught me a lot in such a short amount of time. Will definitely call again.
Great talk on how to get the most value out of a product photography shoot where the content can be reused for different ads and webcontent. Thanks!
Daphne not only is a great professional and a great expert when it comes to CRO, but she also is super nice, kind, and patient. I definitely recommend taking a session with her!
As a first-time hiring manager, I've no experience in hiring and I faced some problems trying to find the right candidate. As an experience marketing leader, Daphne gave me feedback on my JD and some practical tips to find the right candidate.
Great help and valuable insights into content agency workflow. Loved the perspective and help , esp. with G-trends demo.
Really great session - Daphne was able to understand my challenges and provide guidance at high level plus provide actionable tactics. Even had articles to share on the subject!
I really enjoyed my session with Daphne, although the time passed soo fast, it was full of great actionable insights. We've talked about user research and product-market fit. As she went through this process many times before, she was able to provide both her point of view at the strategic level but also some great tips & tricks.
This was my 2nd session with Daphne. Super helpful as the 1st. I just started a new role and had a conversation around guidance for the first 90 days around demand gen and content. Thank you!
Daphne has offered structured and relevant feedback that is applicable even though I'm working in a different industry. She also offers additional resources for further reading, which is very much appreciated!
Will 100% book a new call with Daphne. Great knowledge and alot of valuable insights already in the first 30 min free session.
Daphne is very knowledgeable when it comes to user research. I had a specific challenge and wanted ideas on how to perform user/customer interviews in order to extract insights. Daphne had a lot of insights and best practices and the best part is that she shared her own questionnaire so I can adjust it to my needs. She also suggested a great book to read on the topic which I just ordered this weekend. I am sure I will have a follow up call with Daphne to get some more feedback on my User interview questionnaire.
Needs to be rescheduled :) But I assume it's going to be a 5-star
Another great session with Daphne, lots of juicy insights again!
Daphne is an amazing mentor and we had a fantastic discussion.
Possibly my favourite GM session so far! Daphne was absolutely amazing at simplifying and restructuring our key marketing messages that we're building. Her feedback demonstrates her incredible experience. Daphne really makes it look effortless to provide actionable feedback in simple terms. 10/10.
Daphne and I had a very open and honest conversation about the importance of values in a team. She was generous in sharing her tips and experience which were eye-opening. I felt like she was speaking from the bottom of her heart. It inspired and motivated me to take action. Thank you Daphne!
It was awesome to talk with Daphne, with loads of good ideas and also validation that I was on the right track. Thank you!
Daphne gave specific personal examples and talked through her thought process to provide insight into team building. Great conversation, thanks Daphne.
Daphne's awesome. We zoomed out/in/out/in, connected some blurry dots, chatted about boots on the ground observations within FB ads (hit rates of remarketing CA's, LALs, performance of broad vs. tight & targeted cold audiences, creatives, what's working/not), brainstormed a few content ideas, referral loops, etc. You know, just your typical 30-minute chat with two ADHD growth freaks.
Great first session with Daphne, she is the perfect match for my project and gave me great actionable insights. Looking forward to continuing working with her.
Great actionable advice
Daphne gave some great advice regarding core values and then also offered to follow up with some helpful resources!
One of the best conversations I have had with a GrowthMentor. Daphne is extremely intelligent and thoughtful. She took my problem and dug into exactly what I wanted to accomplish. She gave me advice on starting out on a new job and how to approach new target verticals/industries, with step by step advice on how to approach it. 100% would recommend.
Daphne is super great, the session really helped me figure out my next steps
Great help, provided useful resources to explore beyond the session, seemed genuinely interested in the issues I expressed!
A great 30-minute call with Daphne, very knowledgeable and insightful, and tonnes of advice for the next steps to take. She also shared some useful links and articles - highly recommended!
I had an amazing session with Daphne. She gave me so many great actionable tips, ideas and sent me additional resources - I'm looking forward to implementing them all. @Daphne: Thank you so much again!
Daphne was very helpful in our user test session and shared some great insights. She was very patient and helped us beyond the scheduled time. I highly recommend her.
