How I add value

Public
relations

Developing a public relations strategy delivers real benefits

It’s a cost-effective tool to showcase your services and products in a persuasive and positive context. Make sure what you say chimes with your audience. From full-service to light-touch, I can shape the right public relations profile for your business.

Copy-
writing

Clear writing is good for business

Simple writing ensures you communicate directly with your clients, prospects and wider market.

 

I’ve drafted, edited and polished marketing brochures, newsletters and website text and bring a journalist’s eye, and pragmatic approach, to ensure your profile is raised and your voice heard.
 
I also write blogs, speeches and placed articles for clients, as well as crafting messages and managing Twitter and LinkedIn profiles and pages.

I’ve also created successful actuarial, investment and aviation award submissions, often at short notice, and can do so with compelling design input.

Report
writing

Landmark reports and special projects take more time than you have

Annual report and accounts, corporate brochures and newsletters are projects within day-to-day public relations and marketing that deserve more time than can often be spared. I can plan, manage and carry out these key activities for you; from concept and design to content and delivery.

In-house
resource

Times of change and challenge put greater strain on communication

I’ve worked across sectors and businesses in interim, part-time and campaign-specific roles, ranging from business-as-usual to crisis communication or emergency cover. Think of me as an in-house resource, able to integrate swiftly and deliver effectively as part of a team or a solo specialist. I can be as flexible as you require.

Blogs, social media

No time to write, post or tweet?

Everyone can blog, tweet or post now but do you have time to do yourself - and your company - justice? I draft, edit and polish blogs for clients to ensure they pack personality and boost your profile. Once posted, I also manage social media to make sure they're read by the right audience.
