Getting your communications right

I’m dedicated to ensuring my clients get their communications right. I’ve spent my life working in various forms of communications, as a trainer, analyst, interpreter, translator, writer, presenter, videographer and digital marketer. I’ve worked in corporate offices and combat zones using three languages across four continents. Now I work with individuals and companies to help them get their communications right.

Unorthodox career

For 25 years I learned to speak Arabic fluently and became an expert in strategic communications in the Middle East, and an authority on its cultures, religions, politics and societies. When I finished after nearly 5 years in Baghdad in 2011 and came back to the UK I started my own communications consultancy.

Through my life I’ve had many twists and turns, including cancer in 2004 and being mortared, that have forced me to challenge myself in unexpected ways and pushed my boundaries far beyond what was comfortable. I’ve always sought to create a professional and orderly environment even under the most extreme of circumstances. That’s why, from the chaotic mix of communications choices we face these days, I decided to create some professional order and the result has been my Communications Audit and Communications Essential 50. Through these, I aim to put my clients back in control of their communications. 

Please see my Portfolio for more information, case studies and client work.

Communications leadership for companies

My background has given me a passion for getting to the heart of complicated issues and explaining them in accessible language. I love the artistry of storytelling generally. In particular I love the challenge of developing narratives and brand stories long-term and hence use a content marketing approach with my clients that aims to build a loyal audience for them.

Communications leadership for individuals

As well as helping businesses, one of my specialities is the very un-British art of helping individuals market themselves. In fact all this really means is ensuring they are confidently in charge of how they present themselves throughout the real and digital worlds, in order to enhance their personal and professional life.

Get in touch…

I’ve worked in the UK, Europe and the Middle East with many different teams, and created my own communications business and team from scratch in England. I’m a published author, public speaker, coach and regular blogger.

If you want to discuss how I can help you and your company, please get in touch.
