Anita Newton

Director and co-founder of Friday at Five

I'm passionate about people, ensuring they perform and stay engaged in the workplace. I've had the pleasure of working as a manager and leader in retail, advertising, marketing and the service industry for over 20 years. Throughout this time, I've created and developed working environments for employers and clients alike to attract the best talent that performs.

Through this team performance, I've delivered reliable results in creative, strategic, leadership and commercial capacities. I'm self-motivated, with a strong work ethic and a passionate believer in excellent customer and team engagement to deliver positive financial results.

I understand the intrinsic link between the right engaged people, performance and business results. It is this link that has supported me, my employers and now my clients in developing great people strategies. These strategies help managers with the skills, tools and behaviours they need to build their teams.

I work in a consultative or contractual capacity and would love to help you and your business thrive with the right talent that performs and develops to achieve great things.

Jonathan Newton

Director and co-founder of Friday at Five

I have worked within the digital and retail industries for 25 years in roles from team to senior leadership roles for major high street brands. 

I've become respected in the industry for my digital expertise and approach to digital and eCommerce strategy, digital marketing and transformation projects. 

Through my digital career, I've had the pleasure of working with a broad range of clients from the retail, manufacturing, educational and hospitality sectors. Using this extensive experience, I specialise in helping clients reach their maximum potential and assisting them in delivering measurable step changes in their digital maturity.

I believe that taking a hands-on approach to my profession has enabled me to develop a deep understanding of many digital disciplines which help me to carefully advise my clients on the right path for their individual needs, budgets & abilities. Whether this is in consultative only or a hands-on approach, I possess a unique skill set that is at home equally in the boardroom, or within your team.
