I have worked in the content arena for over 25 years. Bringing a strong understanding of the real life challenges faced by my clients, I am passionate about helping them achieve great quality results through their content. My previous employers and clients include national and international names such as Pearson, City & Guilds, AXELOS Global Best Practice and the International Institute for Strategic Studies.
My career to-date has involved recruiting, leading and managing large teams of editorial, design, translation and sales staff within commercially-successful companies and charities. With my background in digital and printed knowledge-based material, I like nothing better than working on ways to shape and improve it.
I have the flexibility and knowledge to tailor a content solution to suit you. This might involve improving your content strategy, putting in place a robust editorial process or ensuring that you are packaging your content to optimise what it can do. Many years of experience as a hands-on editor gives me the understanding of what it takes to embed quality at every level. And my time as an editorial project manager, underpinned by a PRINCE2 Practitioner project management qualification, has given me a solid foundation in the skills needed to create a quality result for your content, on time and on budget.
I am also a certified personal performance coach with a specific interest in working with content professionals. I have hands-on understanding of the particular issues they face. You may want to look at how I can provide one-to-one mentoring and coaching sessions for you and your team to ensure they are performing at the top of their game in every way.
