On your wavelength

We’re creative &
we like communicating.

Who we are

Everything we do is about communication. Telling your story to the right audience using the right channels. Building your brand, creating influence and delivering sales.

Agency may be too grand a word for 50North – we’re a small and nimble organisation with powerful reach. Rather than employing people, we collaborate with a network of like-minded specialists with creative and technical expertise. This means we can deliver what you need without you worrying about the overhead.

How we work

It’s up to you, we’re flexible. We can send a single newsletter, or provide a complete virtual marketing department service. We can start small and build-up as we get to know each other, or we can dive straight in.

Marine industry

We specialise in marine and have experience in leisure, tourism and retail too. We’ve got experience of government agencies, not-for-profit organisations and private companies.

Rachel Hibberd


I’m Rachel Hibberd, founder of 50North. After a decade of marketing marinas and yachting events for leading companies, I took the leap to go solo. If you want to know what else I’ve got up to over the last 20+ years, you can check me out on Linkedin.

I like learning about different organisations and what makes them tick – it pays to be inquisitive as well as creative in marketing. I’m not just nosy though – I’m a qualified Member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

Sailing, powerboating and generally messing about in boats is how I spend my free time.
