The catalogue enjoys a worldwide reputation as a specialist resource for choral music, although I'm now diversifying the list to include more educational publications.
My core activity is working as Managing Editor on my own list of publications. However, this is balanced by a portfolio of other jobs involving editorial, intellectual property and marketing services. I undertake work on a freelance basis for authors, composers and publishers. In particular, I complete marketing projects for an arts organisation and charity based in Kent.
Before going self-employed, I worked in the music and book publishing trades for over 20 years. I was employed by some well known music companies, as well as a highly successful, independent children's book publisher. I also worked for two years for a charity involved in music and education.
My work experience including advertising, marketing, editorial and production, as well as contract/copyright administration. Given this background I have many commercial skills and attitudes that could be applied to a range of business models including:
• a practical understanding of advertising and marketing
• good negotiating techniques
• an ability to work in a team or with minimal supervision
• confidence to make short, medium or long-term decisions
• enthusiasm, drive and commitment to achieve goals
In essence, when hired, I get the job done on time and on budget.
In my spare time, I enjoy composing music and various sports including cricket, golf, squash and snooker.
