I’m a writer and communications consultant. I help people to share their ideas and tell their stories in ways that connect with their target audiences – whether that’s potential customers, employees, policymakers, donors, investors or the general public. I’ve been doing it for over 25 years.
I’m a board member of 26.org.uk, a not-for-profit that works to inspire a greater love of words, in business and in life. I’m an associate partner at Dark Angels, which helps people around the world to use more creative language at work. And I run workshops that help people to build their creative confidence and wellbeing through writing.
I’ve worked with world-famous brands, corporate leaders, charities, business schools, not-for-profits, scientists, academics and companies in just about every sector.
I like to…
* Use simple, clear words to inform, inspire and engage
* Turn abstract messages into engaging stories and ideas
* Make complex things easy to understand
* Listen to people and work out ways to help them
* Help people to use language like normal human beings
* Interview people; asking questions that reveal powerful stories and compelling ideas
