Sharpe Communications is the copywriting and communications consultancy business created and managed by me, Kathy Sharpe (BA, MPhil, MCIPR). I have worked in marketing communications for 17 years.

I have a background in the public sector - charity, arts, and education - and specialise in copywriting for commercial reports and documents, awards bids, PR planning and press releases, proofreading, internal communications including change / crisis communications, and PR / copywriting training.

Graduating from the University of Birmingham in 2000 with an MPhil research degree, I have worked in the PR and Marketing Departments of a range of charity and public sector organisations including a number in the arts and in education.

Most recently I have specialised in internal communications and copywriting, and have a lot of experience in the field of corporate communications. I have written text for annual reports, prospectuses, and promotional brochures, all alongside creating copy for smaller publications, social media, and websites.

Over the last 17 years I have had responsibility for corporate communications, working alongside Human Resources, Senior Management, and Support Services teams. I have promoted the work of individual faculties, business projects, and enterprise start-up companies, most recently leading a communications and digital marketing team in the education sector.

I have also written many successful awards bids including a PRWeek ‘Decade of Achievement’ Award for Internal Communications, and delivered seminars at national education conferences.
