Communications

With over 20 years experience of communications, I know my way around a communications channel or two and have an attention to detail that some would say borders on the pedantic...

I have been fortunate enough to apply this pedantry, and other more flattering skills, to a range of cultural projects from one-off campaigns, commemorations and receptions to food festivals, major sporting events, and audience development initiatives. Working with a hyper-local, grass roots community one day, and an international, globally connected audience the next, my starting point is always the same - people.

We are all different, so I spend time getting to know who you really want to reach and what kind of relationship you want to build with them. I cover everything from developing communications and audience development strategies to implementing creative campaigns, developing brand personality and values, copywriting and content development.
