Strategic communication, mostly digital

Buzzword-free since forever

Greetings. If you need:

To tell your organisation’s story.  
Protect its reputation.  
Navigate a crisis.  
Or just make your content and social media amazing.

I’m here to help – an experienced communicator that firmly believes one word beats two, and two ears, one mouth is about right.

More than happy to do shirts with collars or lanyard-chic, it’s your call.

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 help you get on the front foot and tell a connected and engaging story everywhere.

Content strategy

Crisis comms

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.

Crisis comms

Social media

Whether you’re looking to define your strategy, engage your audience, create an online community or get through a brouhaha – I’ve been there, I can help.

Social media

And that’s not all!

I can manage your writing, social media advertising campaigns, video production, media relations, media training, publicity, workshop facilitation, internal communication, audit your website or build you a new one…
This list is long, and best done over coffee to be honest.
