I can deliver one-off projects or provide on-going support. I write clear, concise copy for promotional materials including websites, newsletters, direct mail and in-store magazines.
I'm currently working with Dexterous Media, writing features for Exquisite magazine which is distributed in independent garden centres across the UK.
The Communications Makeover for small businesses and start-ups
I've met and promoted hundreds of small and medium sized businesses. Many successful and growing companies do not have the skills or time to address key business challenges - they might want to attract new markets, retain and recruit high quality staff or change perceptions of their stakeholders. They benefit from my fresh perspective and an ability to add value in a cost effective way.
I provide good businesses* with simple, straight-forward advice and a great return on their investment. Each business is different, so I tailor my services to suit. I have particular experience of addressing the unique challenges of businesses in the horticultural and green sectors, start-ups and family businesses.
Services include; strategic communications, promotional events, commissioning advertising & design (newsletters, flyers, brochures etc.), building a presence through social media, copy writing & editing, recruitment campaigns and training.
* by good businesses I mean one which is already successful, or has the potential to be! To work for you I need to buy into your products or services or you as a business leader. After all, if I like what you do I'm going to be better at promoting you.

Summary: Until July 2010 I was Head of Communications for Enterprise UK, a not-for-profit organisation which inspires people to be enterprising. I was lucky enough to lead and create some great campaigns. I\'ve loved seeing new ideas and small businesses flourish as a result.
I\'ve led on successful partnerships with business, government, media and not-for-profit organisations, including handbag.com, BBC, Big Lottery Fund, Virgin Media Pioneers, Orange, the Departments for Business and Education and the Cabinet Office.
I\'ve also secured engagement from high profile entrepreneurs, ministers and celebrities; from Peter Jones and Gordon Brown through to Jo Wood and Jamelia.
Back in the day I worked for Lexis PR for five years and worked on some fantastic B2B and consumer accounts including ntl, Barclaycard, Benjys, Norwich Union, Domino\'s Pizza and Arjowiggins (it\'s their fault I became a paper geek!). Awarded Lexis Team Player of the Year.
I grew up immersed in my parent\'s business, and like to think of myself as the communications version of Mary Portas or Gerry Robinson! Put simply I understand how businesses work, and how to improve them.
