After a good number of years in the banking industry, mostly with the HSBC Group, I opened Bishopsgate Copywriting in 2010. Following a couple of diversions back into full time employment – first as Editor of “FX-MM,” the monthly financial magazine and then some time in risk management consultancy with The RMA – I’m now 100% focused on my copywriting business again.

I work with companies of all sizes, mostly in the financial sector, as this is where I have core expertise, but I’m just as happy working with companies in other sectors. I’ve had, for example, a long working relationship with a German engineering multinational. My aim, always, is to help my clients communicate more effectively with their customers.

I write company annual reports, blogs, case studies, ESG communications, marketing copy, newsletters, press releases, product brochures, training materials and website copy. I’m also happy to do policy drafting work and to assist on meaty research and analysis projects.

My skills include SEO knowledge and matching Tone of Voice to brand. I'll create vibrant new content, or refresh and enhance existing copy. I particularly welcome approaches from publishers and media agencies to write magazine articles...just send me a synopsis of the piece you need written.

I’m also a skilled interviewer. There's more info about my Business Leader feature interview service on my Facebook page.
