I help you maximise your message so that it always strikes the right note and gets your point across. Having a background in sales, marketing and business development I understand how important it is to ensure your message reaches the target – using the right tone, appropriate style, and focused content. To do this effectively takes a little time and some skill, but pays dividends.
My first job was as a copy editor with Penguin Books - fantastic training that I’ve drawn on many times since. I spent over twenty years in book publishing before moving to other sectors, including sales promotion and field marketing. More recently, I've worked in professional services, including ten years with a top twenty accountancy firm in business development and marketing. Since 2009 I’ve been running my own business, Results Department, specialising in copywriting, editing and proofreading services for businesses in professional services and other sectors. I work with businesses in Thame, Oxford, Oxfordshire, Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, Reading and Berkshire. Clients are mainly in the legal sector, financial services and accountancy, market research, HR and other business support areas.
I’m also involved in voluntary work locally: I write press releases for the Players Theatre in Thame (entirely run by volunteers), help to promote Midsomer tourism in Thame (a hub for Midsomer Murders filming locations), and am a member of the town's Visitor Economy Working Group.
When I’m not writing or doing voluntary work, as a foodie I love spending time in the kitchen or walking our enthusiastic golden retriever-poodle cross (otherwise known as a groodle).
