A little bit about me
Business owners, marketing managers, web and design agencies come to me when they want help generating enquiries and sales.
I’m known for my clear and simple writing that gets important information across quickly. Most importantly I make sure your messages are understood.
My approach to copywriting
Your copy will be presented to you in an agency style copy deck, which will give you all the information you need to guide you through the editing process.
What’s more, because everything you need is provided in one neat document, I’ve made it easy for your project stakeholders to pick up and run with your copywriting project.
What are the benefits of hiring me to write your copy?

I’m a classically trained (Chartered Institute of Marketing) marketer.
I was awarded the Chartered Institute of Marketing Diploma in 1999.
Then in January 2012 I successfully completed the industry respected Success Works SEO copywriting programme.
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?
Take advantage of my experience gained from working:
- In-house as a Marketing Manager covering all aspects of marketing communications:
- Website content planning and content creation
- Advertising (writing copy for ads)
- Corporate Literature (production of)
- Direct marketing
- Email marketing
- Event management
- Closely with sales teams and account managers
- Closely with design agencies
- Directly with SMEs
My experience means I know how to connect with your audience and guide it into making that all important decision to buy your products/services.
