I am Chartered Marketer with a degree in Management Studies and a Postgraduate in Marketing. I have 20 years marketing experience, over ten of which I have been working in the environmental and sustainability sectors.
A strong planner and project manager, I ensure that marketing and communications are well thought out, practical, effective, delivered and measured. As a skilled copywriter and a stickler for good grammar, I produce high quality communications for many different audiences and media.
Having worked for a wide range of organisations – from central government and multi-nationals to professional services, family businesses and one-man-bands – I believe I have a broad perspective which enables me to quickly get to grips with different businesses and their marketing requirements.
I have travelled widely in the last 20 years but now split my time between England, Scotland and the French Alps. Casting aside the hypocrisy of travelling regularly, I am passionate about the environment and responsible business!
