I am a freelance trainer and writer with a background in direct marketing and new business. Based in Brighton, I’ve been helping organisations worldwide communicate better since 2004. Click here to view my CV.
When I started my career, like a lot of people I was quite skillful at writing essays and passing exams. I soon realised that these skills were of limited use in the business environment.
When a new job required me to write competitive bids for new business funding, I learned the hard way how to write more persuasively.
Since becoming a trainer and a writer, I have discovered a whole toolbox of tools and techniques that I would have killed for at that stage in my career. They are not hard to learn or apply. I share them on my training courses because I believe that talented, educated people should be able to learn how to express their ideas effectively in the workplace.
How I can help
I deliver writing courses and one-to-one coaching on all aspects of business writing – from better emails and reports to winning bids and proposals. Click on the training tab above for examples of the in-house training courses I run. I can also write and deliver bespoke courses for you.
Clients I’ve worked with include global technology companies, financial analysts, contact centres, local authorities, civil engineering firms and charities.
I train people at all levels of education and experience, from school-leavers to teams of executives. Qualified in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), I also help non-native English speakers to develop their writing skills. I frequently train people in continental Europe and Asia.
