I love to write! Since I was very young I wrote poems, stories and designed personalised birthday cards for my parents.
Throughout my career I have really enjoyed the challenge of finding the human side of a story, uncovering the personality behind a business to bring a story to life or researching facts and figures to provide credibility to an article.
So I set up Connect Consultancy to help people who don’t like to write and who find it difficult to express themselves when it comes to their business messages.
Working with small companies and organisations I help people uncover their business propositions and unique selling points and improve communication, engagement and interaction across social media or through traditional marketing.
Good quality, clear content helps you engage with your customers, communities or stakeholders showcasing your passion and purpose and the benefits of your business, product or service across your chosen social media and marketing platforms.
By focusing on clear messages people will get to understand you and your business and you can build up loyalty and trust so that customers will be drawn to buy from you in the future.
As an honest and ethical person, my approach is to offer practical, affordable, tailor made solutions without the jargon and spin providing an honest assessment of improvements that can be easily implemented.
My passion is backed up with 25 years’ experience in marketing and communications working with business and professional companies, retailers, town centre management, and destination marketing organisations and in the fields of economic development, regeneration, business support and inward investment.
With a background in traditional marketing I help organisations increase their digital presence and take advantage of the power of social media and dynamic websites. I combine my passion and expertise in creative writing through crafting blogs, copy for websites, newsletters, direct mail, case studies and testimonials. The more people understand you and your story the more they will want to work with you. As well as creative writing for business I also love to share my knowledge through one to one training or workshops.
I choose to be self-employed as I love the flexibility of working with lots of different organisations and managing multiple projects and delivering solutions that meet the needs of my clients.
My skills include marketing strategy, delivery and evaluation; partnership working; event development and management; project development and management; commissioning market research; bid writing and creating new services. But, if you have a larger project or challenge I work with a specially selected group of trusted associates and companies to ensure that all aspects of work are covered.
My aim is to run Connect Consultancy as an ethical business aiming for the highest levels of professionalism, trust and credibility. Please feel free to get in touch for a no obligation chat!
