Contact details

I spent much of my career in sales, marketing and business development roles. That means I understand how important it is to focus on the customer in order to achieve desired results. In our digital age, messages are clamouring for attention everywhere. So it really matters that, to get a hearing, your message captures reader attention using focused content, expressed in the right tone of voice. To do this takes writing skill and time but will pay dividends.
I’ve always loved words and wrote pieces for the student newspaper at university. My first job was as a copy editor with Penguin Books - fantastic training that I’ve drawn on many times. I stayed in book publishing for twenty years but moved over into sales and marketing, and even ran my own business selling books to big brands for promotional use. More recently, I spent ten years in marketing and business development with a top twenty accountancy firm. Since 2009 I’ve been running my own copywriting consultancy, Results Department, providing copywriting, editing and proofreading services to professional services firms and other businesses. I work with clients in Thame, Oxford, Oxfordshire, Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, Reading, Berkshire, and West London. Recent projects have been in the legal sector, financial services, market research, and other business service areas.
I’m also involved in voluntary work in my town of Thame: I write press releases for the Players Theatre (a popular theatre run entirely by volunteers), help promote Midsomer tours (Thame is a hub for Midsomer Murders filming locations), and am a member of the town's Visitor Economy Working Group.
When I’m not working, I love listening to classical music and I’m a reasonable cook. An important member of the household is our enthusiastic and very handsome golden retriever-poodle cross (groodle) who needs to be taken for walks twice a day.
