Journalist who writes about childhood and sustainability. Career highlights include being retweeted by Bianca Jagger.
I specialise in marketing for small businesses and education. My career evolved from journalist and proof reader to practical, hands-on PR and marketing; through to online marketing expertise; and finally wider strategic marketing and branding roles. I have recently found myself drawn back to my roots as a writer and I’m rapidly developing a successful niche writing about sustainable living and childhood. I have worked and lived internationally, for world renowned universities and careers' services. I've been a self-employed marketing consultant since 1997, continuing my relationship with some high profile universities and working with a number of small businesses. I have a degree in journalism studies and postgraduate qualifications in marketing.
I specialise in writing copy that matches the tone of the brand and the style of the audience; I have trained hundreds of people in how to write business communications that reinforce the company's image, and appeal specifically to the target reader.
As a small business owner, I understand what other small businesses need. When I work with small and micro businesses, I often start on one project; before getting involved in a much more strategic project where I end up helping the owner develop a comprehensive, long-term marketing strategy. I like to see results, so I’m not afraid to tell you if I think your phone message is so bad that it will affect your sales!
I’m never going to use jargon. I’m not going to create (or copy) weird phrases to demonstrate my ‘expertise’. Marketing is not a dark art; it’s a business function.
I’m a little bit obsessed with happiness and I’m happiest when I do things to the best of my ability. If I’m available for work, it means I’m in a position to give you my full attention. If I’m showing as ‘not available’ on PPH, it’s because I’m off doing something else properly - like another project, being a hands-on parent, or battling my allotment. Please feel free to contact me, I’ll be honest about whether I can help you and when I’m next available.
