My background

I learnt the principles of good writing and the power of clear communications from an early age.

My parents were Fleet Street journalists.

I would have followed my parents into the family trade but for one problem. I was an incredibly shy teenager. I didn’t like using the phone.

Not a good trait for a budding reporter.

But I’ve always been fascinated by the world of business. And after watching the film ‘Working Girl’, I decided this was the place I wanted to be.

So I started my career in sales support, where I learned about the importance of the sales process.

From sales support I made a natural move into marketing.

Fortunately for me, the companies I worked for were big enough to have a budget, but not big enough for agencies to do all the work for them.

As a result, I had the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of marketing. Including writing copy for brochures, direct mail, adverts, newsletters, PR and more.

So what are the benefits of hiring me over anyone else?
