How I can help

Communication strategy

First, we’ll talk over what you’re trying to achieve and the issues you’re facing. Then, I’ll define your goals, risks, messages and which stakeholders need to hear them in the simplest way possible.

Content strategy

Web content, video, media engagement, tweets or the ‘Gram. What you say and how you say it is crucial to your reputation and success – I’ll get you on the front foot to tell an engaging story everywhere.

Crisis communication

I’m the guy you want in your war room. If you’re planning ahead or in the thick of it, I can help get you through a crisis credibly and strategically.
