Defining and articulating effective strategic stories is vital for any successful organisation. I use the skills acquired from 25 years in journalism to help businesses better position themselves and communicate with their key audiences.
I’ve worked across a range of sectors, both directly with clients and through agencies. Much of my recent work has been for technology companies, particularly early stage start-ups, writing brand positioning copy and creating content in fields including personal data, automation and AI.
I’m founding editor of Internet of Me, an online and print publication for the personal data economy. It explores how the huge amounts of data we each produce in our connected lives are changing the world we live in, creating new opportunities and challenges.
I work on bigger branding and communication projects as part of C&Co, a design and branding consultancy. We offer clients a broad range of services including visual identity, brand creation and development, campaigns, art direction, and graphic design across print and digital media.
I co-created the game Headline Charades, a twist on the party classic featuring bizarre and funny newspaper headlines. A third of them are spoofs, giving a use to all the headlines that never found the right story during years at the tabloid sharp end. You can buy Headline Charades here, or though all good game retailers.
