Since becoming freelance in August 2008, I have taken on writing commissions for government agencies and charities, in addition to marketing consultancy and PR work, writing marketing strategies and using my extensive experience in publishing to gain valuable press coverage on behalf of clients. I have also written a book based on experiences in Cambodia which is awaiting publication.
My work often involves liaising with designers, paper merchants and printers and I have a range of designers and printers to call on, which may prove more cost effective than existing relationships. I am more than happy to share these details with clients, or to manage projects if they prefer.
My priority is to ensure that the client receives exactly what they commissioned, on time and within budget. I offer creative solutions to make sure the message is clear and presented in a professional manner. My writing style is accurate, engaging and can give even the dullest of topics flair that will make the reader want to know more.
