I have worked for a range of blue chip companies and have particular experience with professional services, IT suppliers and membership organisations. Having worked remotely from London for a major US company as a self-employed contractor, I have experience of \"virtual\" working and the time management skills required to do this successfully.
I am able to write strong copy for a wide variety of audiences using both on- and offline media, and while I do not have technical web development skills, I have experience of producing online copy for organisations ranging from a major broadcaster to a small stationary company.
An excellent communicator both on paper and in person, I work well with a wide range of people. Organised and good at prioritising, I have strong IT skills which I am always keen to develop, and a particular interest in e-communications.
Area Covered: London in person; anywhere virtually.
