I have over 20 years’ experience in communications skills training and development. I currently write on a freelance basis for most of the UK national newspapers as well as various specialist publications on subjects ranging from business and management to marketing, education, the environment, the Internet and property.

I also have more than 12 years media training experience, having worked for a wide variety of blue chip clients, including RBS, Tesco, British Airways, the RSPCA, EDF Energy and Visa, helping their spokespeople to develop and test their corporate messages.

As Head of Broadcasting at the Conservative Party in the UK, I trained senior politicians to appear on television and radio and to handle media interviews. I also advised and assisted them in crisis situations.

I started my career in financial and corporate public relations at Broad Street Associates where my clients included British Airways and Saatchi & Saatchi amongst others, before joining the in-house PR department at WHSmith, the retail and distribution group, where I specialised in investor relations and issue management.

The author of two books, I also write corporate brochures and promotional materials for a variety of organisations and help executives write and deliver effective presentations.
