Spencer Dawson


Spencer studied marketing and design at Solent University, graduating in 1997. After stretches working in advertising and media sales, Spencer landed a role in consumer marketing at Ronson Plc. Covering a wide range of marketing disciplines, he honed his copywriting, design, and supplier management skills. With a wealth of knowledge and experience under his belt, he went onto to form a consultancy that specialised in products with designs from cult movies. Upon moving to Portsmouth in 2005, Spencer shifted his career to an environmental theme - an area he is very passionate about. After working in a variety of positions in Waste Management, Regeneration, and Planning at Portsmouth City Council he then returned to a traditional marketing role with Bird Aware Solent in 2018. As the Marketing and Brand Lead for the Partnership, Spencer was involved in a wide range of tasks including strategy writing, social media, marketing, communications and brand development. With the organisation overlapping its area with that of Coastal Partners, and the environmentally focused projects that Coastal Partners develop, it made perfect sense to become one of the dedicated team.
