I’m an all-round communicator with 25+ years’ client, agency and consultancy communications experience. Since 2010, I’ve held numerous internal communications contract roles in the UK in M&A, transformation, function, programme, campaign and sustainability communications in complex global IT, financial, energy and construction companies.

Previously, I was a freelance journalist and copywriting consultancy owner in South Africa, writing for a variety of magazine and newspaper titles, and servicing a wide corporate client list.

The diversity of my roles, and varied global and cultural exposure within the communications sector – regularly within highly ambiguous and flexing environments – have shaped my questioning and agile approach; and hands on, let’s get it done style.
