+15 years experience working in lead London agencies, global brands and social enterprises. More info is in my CV section.
I grew the Eurostar account and then helped M&C Saatchi’s digital start over 5 years. I ran their first retainer with RBS Group which was worth over £3million in 4 years. I started freelancing after this working with companies like Glue, We Are Social, w+k, VCCP Kin, The Big Issue Group, JustGiving.
Strong empathy, trust and conviction for building valuable partnerships and successful projects. I like to work on innovative projects, which have collaboration at the heart of them.
I believe in the positive power brands can have. The ones who invest in being ‘social’ businesses, will be the ones who thrive, innovate and stay relevant.
In 2013-2014 I did On Purpose a social enterprise leadership programme. I helped The Big Issue/Big Issue Invest in their first Group marketing role, and JustGiving launch their first labs crowdfunding product helping to generate the first 700 projects and £1million in revenue.
In 2018 I did Seth Godin’s altMBA and got a little award which was nice.
I’ve recently done a Scrum Master course. I’m a big believer in on-going self learning. I like to focus on how I can bring out the best in others.
I run a social enterprise and social good group with over 3,000 members worldwide, and a clothes swapping community called The Clothes Club. Both started as experiments. We’ve given £7,000 to good causes like Art Against Knives, Birdsong, Bootstrap Campus, Childhope., Cancer Research UK, Foodcycle, Hackney Pirates.
