During 35 years in finance, journalism and communications, I have advised and coached senior executives, and handled challenges ranging from crisis management to crafting powerful copy.
I work with some of the biggest brands globally, but also with start-ups and SMEs that are scaling up for growth. Clients include corporates, asset managers, charities and government bodies.
Earlier in my career I was an investment banker with Swiss Bank Corp then a financial journalist with Thomson Reuters. Later on I was Head of Financial & Professional Services at PR agency Fishburn. This unusual mix of experience is particularly helpful for companies that are readying themselves for sale or IPO, as I understand the different approaches needed to talk to analysts, investors, private equity and trade buyers.
I also understand the need to vary communications in different markets and have worked with organisations in the UK, Continental Europe, Asia, North and South America, and speak fluent Spanish.
My special skill is to make the complicated into something simple and compelling for the target audience.
