I've helped a wide range of commercial, statutory, voluntary and professional bodies with advice on press, publicity, publications and communications. My experience working for national newspapers, combined with my knowledge of the ins and outs of voluntary and professional bodies, makes me well placed to do so.
What I hope I can do is provide organisations with a unique perspective on communications issues. I know what gets publicity, what gets things noticed, what gets people to actually read and absorb messages. But, because of my broad background, I'm also sympathetic to some of the barriers and difficulties organisations face in saying what they want to say. I help them find ways to communicate which suits them on all fronts. Sometimes this involves taking a different angle on a problem.
I've also conducted media training for many organisations, including Greenpeace and the London Deanery for medical training.
