My early days, in the 70s, involved the creation of media releases (*press releases in those days), brochures,posters and general publicity.
During this time, I worked in a senior (general) level in the theatre and acted as company secretary. I also worked for an extremely articulate English performer and it is my hope that some of his talent in this direction may have 'rubbed off' on me.
Decades later, I am copy editor for a web design company and have recently re-negotiated this role to be on a consultancy basis -thus allowing greater flexibility as I consider interesting freelance opportunities.
Area Covered: Lancashire but anywhere online
Work Experience Summary: My longer term experience is within the theatrical profession where, in the repertory theatre, I compiled the printed programme - every three weeks • created posters and season brochures in addition to regular media releases. I was Publicity and General Manager and as Company Secretary, took minutes at board meetings……I was “Lord High Everything Else!”
During this period, I also acquired significant experience in the realms of fund raising for capital projects.
Subsequently, after a spell as Operations Manager at Harrogate Conference Centre, I embarked on my own hotel business and for the past three years, have been employed as Copy Editor for a web design company. Here, work is varied and writing requirements range from restaurants and fashion boutiques to undertakers.
Whilst I do not profess to be a web designer, I have recently written and created two websites of my own.
Thank you for your interest.
Education Summary: Of course, I have the usual GCEs • but I never went to university
Any training was undertaken on the job’ •as they say
My University of Life, though, included being credited as one of three people who, in my home city of Sheffield, “saved” the Lyceum Theatre. I am very proud of this fact
I endeavour, though, to bring this dogged determination to everything that I do
I hope that these qualities may be of use to you………..
