Sharpe Communications offers freelance copywriting and communications support for organisations with a positive social impact; specialisms include education, arts, charity, and not-for-profit sectors.

Sharpe Communications is managed by me, Kathy Sharpe (BA, MPhil, MCIPR). I have worked in marketing communications for 18 years, and services include commercial reports and documents, awards bids, PR planning and press releases, proofreading and editing, 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. Most recently I 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 18 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 national Planning Award in 2018 and a PRWeek ‘Decade of Achievement’ Award for Internal Communications, and delivered seminars at national education conferences.
