I am an independent consultant offering senior marketing communications counsel to clients who want to make better use of their marketing investment.
I have been the MD of three marcomms agencies and now offer that experience in three ways:
1. Working alone, providing senior counsel on communications strategy
2. I can work with trusted agency partners to provide a virtual agency service
3. I can work with clients' existing agencies to manage their services in order to provide greater focus and efficiency.
My particular expertise is in PR led, integrated communications and I have won multiple awards for campaigns aimed at winning over the public in situations where there is a policy or political element.
I have done work for global businesses and SMEs, each can be equally rewarding. I am more than happy to travel nationally or internationally for assignments and providing the work is interesting, I can be flexible about rates for different kinds of outputs.
If you are looking for an agency to do 'business as usual' work then I'm probably not right for you. If on the other hand you have a communications challenge that could be addressed in a number of ways and need real experience and unbiased advice to solve it, then I would be delighted to discuss it in confidence.
