About me

I am a versatile strategic communications consultant, copywriter and editor with more than ten years' experience partnering with experts to turn big ideas into engaging communications and accessible content that resonates with their target audiences. I have written for top publications, such as Harvard Business ReviewThe Financial TimesThe EconomistCity AMThe Conversation and Huffington Post

I am a skilled relationship manager who gets best from leading thinkers and specialises in translating complex research, data and insights to meet their strategic communication goals. I work with my clients on everything from books, thought leadership and award entries, to internal communications, impact case studies and grant funding applications. 

 

Before setting out as an independent consultant, I spent more than four years as University of Edinburgh Business School's first PR & Communications Manager. In this role, I brought a renewed focus to the School's research reputation, implemented a modern, reader-centred approach to external communications and oversaw a successful communications-led internal culture change and engagement programme.

 

I began my career working with two of the UK's leading independent PR & Communications agencies, where I partnered with clients on reputation management, strategic public relations and stakeholder engagement.
