A successful nine year commercial marketing and PR career within the mobile telecoms and IT industry followed, including becoming a peer-elected Director of the Mobile Data Association. During this period I regularly contributed to articles, books and radio debate about IT and mobile telecoms issues.
More recently I have returned to my media roots successfully undertaking freelance PR jobs by obtaining coverage for clients across a range of media outlets including the front page of the Independent and TV coverage in the USA.
I also still write, my most recent feature can be found on the Independent newspaper website and is entitled, "The Hi-Tech Solution to Soaring Energy Bills". A copy of which can also be found in my portfolio section on this site.
My skill sets therefore include PR, copy writing, creative writing, journalistic writing and research. I am always thorough and conscientious with my writing, and therefore may not be the cheapest.
I would like to think my commercial experience adds another dimension to my writing and PR skills as I can easily form a solid understanding of the needs of a business and apply these to ensure the best possible results.
