Our approach enables us to be more objective about
the requirements of a company and its relationship
with its stakeholders. We don't offer an "off-the-shelf"
product; rather, we pick and choose activities and
initiatives that are appropriate to the size, ambition
and corporate strategy of each of our clients.

high-level, no-nonsense approach. Consequently
I have established a model which is both highly
transparent and effective in helping our clients
meet their communications objectives."

PLCs over the past 20 years. My broad knowledge of
the industry enables me to develop detailed
communications strategies, helping companies of all
sizes deliver strong, incisive messaging."


"Having worked within old and new media for the past
four years, I have witnessed first-hand the tremendous
growth and impact that social media has had on the
industry. This knowledge has enabled me to fully
understand specific corporate and marketing objectives,
transforming them into effective social campaigns."


"I have worked with companies of all sizes, from event
organisers to fully listed organisations, delivering
effective, engaging and measurable social media
campaigns and programmes. My background in PR and
corporate communications has given me a detailed
