A communications and engagement leader, I am expert in:
Strategic communications and engagement consultancy, public relations advice and support, marketing and sales writing, proposal writing, editing, copywriting, social media and digital consultancy.
I bring stories to life to inspire change and compel action, helping clients connect with their customers using digital, social and traditional communication.
For me, given my background as a writer, journalist, blogger and social media consultant, this always starts with using compelling content and stories to ignite and inspire.
At Public-i, which I joined in 2010, I supported clients with online communication and engagement, particularly to inform strategy and practice. After working as a journalist in the UK and overseas for several years, I studied online journalism and joined consultancy firm, Podnosh, developing my social media skills and knowledge of online communities, blogging and digital production. Before that, I worked in Dubai - for Time Out GCC - and for the Ham&High, North London's best known and most loved local newspaper. Most recently, I led communication for NHS Citizen, NHS England’s programme to bring citizen voice to the heart of NHS decision making.
As well as a passion for all I do at work, I'm an avid swimmer, and lover of sports. Most of all, though, I'm a writer. Crafting a good sentence and a well-formed argument are still what I love.
