About Us


My name is Tina Hinchley. I have worked in Outdoor/Out of Home advertising for over 24 years and, frankly, I live and breathe it. I have a real passion for helping businesses get the most out of their advertising.

So, where it started; on 2nd February 1998, at the age of 17, I started working at a company called Decker Media Ltd as an office junior. I soon got bored of that and I was in the sales team by 1st April where I had my very first sales target selling Bus Ticket advertising. I loved telesales and covered the UK on every bus.

I remember seeing all the sales reps coming in with their briefcases from meetings with clients and knew that was what I wanted to do. I am a people’s person and wanted to be out and about meeting people face-to-face. Fast forward three very successful years in telesales and I got promoted to a Sales Executive – I finally had my own briefcase and business cards too!

I went on to sell a variety of advertising platforms at London’s Docklands Light Railway, the NEC in Birmingham, Executive Lounges, phone boxes, airports, and bus advertising. This is then where I have spent the majority of my career so far, which developed into senior management.

Over the years, I have worked with so many amazing companies from sole traders to blue chip and I love nothing more than understanding a client’s business and vision and being able to tailor and plan advertising campaigns to suit. This can be anything from a targeted Out of Home campaign on a specific high street, or city, region, or a nationwide campaign.

So, why leave a great career, amazing clients, and a sales team I had built?

I just feel really passionate about giving clients a broad spectrum of advertising platforms to form a multi-media mix, as this can help target different audiences and spread the message wider and be more impactful. In my previous role I specialised in bus, tram and 6-sheet (tram stop) advertising which was great as they are amazing platforms, but I felt I wasn’t doing my clients full justice. So I decided with a heavy heart to hang up my boots after 24 years to start my own business to offer clients straight-talking Out of Home (OOH) advertising and Candooh Media (Can-Do but with OOH) was born.

I genuinely don’t know where this journey will take me, but what I do know is that with all my experience gained from over two decades and a can-do attitude, it excites me to be following my heart and progressing within the industry I know and love but offering clients all OOH options.

Please get in touch with me if you would like to find out how OOH advertising can help and benefit you and your business.

I’ll stick the kettle on and look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

My name is Mel Sharpe, and I am thrilled to be joining Candooh Media as a Director!

I have spent the last 11 years working closely with Tina, helping businesses promote their brands using Outdoor Advertising.

We make a fabulous team, having grown up together (we’re cousins). Tina was my maid of honour at my wedding, so of course it made total sense for us to partner up in business too… wait till you see what we CANDOOH together!

I didn’t start in the world of advertising, having spent the previous 6 years working as Senior Cabin Crew out of East Midlands Airport, I decided to hang up my wings and put those customer service and people skills to good work and get out and about selling Bus Advertising; starting with Leicestershire, I soon progressed and covered Birmingham, Luton, Cambridge, Staffordshire, Northampton, and Derby to name a few.

I had found my passion! The thrill of meeting new clients and building great business relationships helping them get the best from their OOH advertising drove me forward and my client base grew, from small local businesses to large organisations and government bodies. I worked with a wide variety of business sectors to drive their business and advertising forward, and I’ve been lucky enough to work on some fantastic campaigns throughout the last decade.

After having my two beautiful babies in 2016 & 2018 I returned to work with more drive to succeed than ever before, and although we hit a little blip in 2020 with COVID, my work flourished with more clients and campaigns under my belt than ever before. Something was missing though, I knew and respected lots of agency owners I had worked with and I wanted to learn more for myself about the world of Outdoor Advertising, to be able to bring my clients all the options, depending on what would work for them, and that brings me to where I am now!

After taking the huge dive into the world of the self-employed in October 2022, I found so many business owners looking to grow and progress using Out-of-Home, all welcoming my help and guidance with my previous experience, and by this time with Candooh Media well underway it would have been crazy not to jump onboard together and see how far we can sail this awesome ship!

I’m a bright and friendly Leicester girl who loves a coffee and a chat, so I’m looking forward to meeting new and old clients and launching some great campaigns, across the country!

Get in touch for a chat.
