mprc has been active since 1988, delivering confidential and impartial business advice to new and developing small businesses in the East of England. Lead adviser, Maureen Purchase, former Fellow of the Institute of Business Consulting, has over 20 years of well qualified experience in this field, operating privately and under contract to Business Links and Chambers of Commerce in the region.
Her own background is in retail management with Marks & Spencer Plc followed by a period of successful ownership of a retail operation, prior to becoming a business adviser. Maureen is also the author of 'Talking Shop' (1987 - Channel 4/NEC/Kogan Page), a reference manual for independent retailers.
From 1st January 2014, the day-to-day control & management of mprc Web Services has been passed to our Web Management Consultant, Steve Purchase. Steve's background has been in Sales & Marketing management, spanning some 40 years and working in some of the UK's well known branded companies, such as Procter & Gamble and Twinings. In 2007, Steve teamed up with Maureen to support her in the provision of online presence services to SME's and latterly also not-for-profit groups.
As of 1st June 2015, we have now withdrawn from direct web development, hosting & management, although we are contiuning to support our existing client base until 31st December 2016.
This change is to free up our resources in order to focus on Content & Affiliate Marketing, where we have been involved to a lesser degree for a number of years.
Thanks to everyone for allowing us to service rheir online presence and for the business opportunity.
Web Management Consultant.
