I love to write – anything from social media sound bites to painstakingly crafted books and just about everything in-between. I also love being able to offer clients a professional PR and marketing service, at an affordable price. I'm proud of my ability to combine creativity - my idea-generating streak knows no bounds - with a results-focused commercial awareness.
During a career spanning close to 20 years, I’ve amassed a wealth of experience. I’ve created brand strategies and implemented marketing plans for FMCG blue chips. And I’ve written simple press releases for clients with the tiniest of budgets.
In the last year, at People Per Hour:
- I’ve written web content, some press releases and an information leaflet
- I’ve been the publicist for a Polar explorer and for a fitness exhibition
- I’ve undertaken strategy work on PR, for a coconut water drink, and on brand, for a kids’ food range
It’s a cliché but variety really is the spice of life!
Running my own micro-business works perfectly for me, for my family, and for my growing retinue of satisfied customers. A good work-life balance keeps me healthy, happy and motivated. Being home-based keeps my costs low and my working hours flexible. Why not get in touch, and let me know how I can help you?
