I am a strategic communications consultant, passionate about clear, jargon-free communication and fascinated by the impact technology has on all aspects of our lives. I also love food, photography and the outdoors. Not all of these are likely to be relevant to how I can help you, but I wanted to share a little information on who I am, not just what I do for a living.
I believe that having a full understanding of an organisation – it’s strategy, purpose, culture and the environment it operates in - is essential for me to be able to deliver real value. This means that I will invest time in getting to know you and the people important to your business, work collaboratively, ask questions (and ask why, a lot) and challenge thinking. I am energetic, commercially minded and focused on delivering results.
My key principles to effective communications are based on strategy, insight, integration and continuous evaluation. Over the past 20 years, I've worked with companies of all shapes and sizes, with different cultures and challenges and across a number of industry sectors.
Helping companies build and protect business reputation is at the core of everything I do. For me, it all starts with strategy – and most likely a strong coffee.
