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 quite a lot of skill, but pays dividends.
My first job was as a copy editor with Penguin Books - fantastic training that I’ve applied in many writing contexts ever since. I spent about twenty years in the publishing industry and have worked with businesses of many kinds since, including ten years with a top twenty accountancy firm, building relationships with SME businesses in the Thames Valley.
Since 2009 I’ve been running my own business, Results Department, specialising in providing copywriting and editing services. I work with businesses in Thame, Oxford, rest of Oxfordshire, Aylesbury, High Wycombe, rest of Buckinghamshire, Reading and elsewhere in Berkshire. Clients are mainly B2B, especially legal sector, financial services and accountancy, market research, HR and other business support services.
I’m also involved in voluntary work locally: I write fundraising proposals and press releases for the Players Theatre in Thame, 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 editing or doing things for the town, as a foodie I love spending time in the kitchen or walking our enthusiastic golden retriever-poodle cross (a groodle).
