I missed the ‘flash’ gene common to many PR practitioners, so have to rely on intellect, imagination and experience. Somehow, clients find this reassuring!
I learnt my craft at industrial gases company BOC and spent several years as a director of Golley Slater Public Relations in London. I have worked across business-to-business, consumer and corporate PR for clients as diverse as Honda Power Equipment, the New Homes Marketing Board, the Army, United Glass, the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, A4e and ALNO kitchens.
I am driven by a desire for business to profit by solving the world’s problems ethically. You can see my thoughts on this on Twitter.
My strengths are key message development, an elegant prose style and in-depth understanding of clients’ business issues. I love to work with people who throw out interesting challenges to keep the little grey cells constantly active.
When not working, I lose myself in a book, write and perform comedy and enjoy our awe-inspiring countryside and heritage.
I manage the business to ensure that we deliver what we say we’ll do. I have spent many years in senior management positions within both the NHS and third sector, so I appreciate the challenges of working within tightly defined budgets and delivering value for money across complex projects on a grand scale.
When I ran the Access Men of the Year lunch, I had to organise 500 people to be in the right place at the right time and liaise with sponsors, clients, Men of the Year and their spouses.
At the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, I was responsible for an annual budget of £1.5 million, a staff team of 15 and three consultants.
I was on the management team at Winchester YMCA, for whom I ran the government’s Extended Schools initiative locally, covering 35 Hampshire schools. Latterly, I also managed St John’s House, a luxury historic venue in Winchester city centre, doubling bookings within three months of taking up the role.
Much to my children’s embarrassment, I enjoy Donny Osmond, the National Trust and The Archers.
