    I help people to communicate better. I am a communications adviser, campaign strategist and reputation management expert. I advise individuals, businesses and campaigns how to communicate using words and techniques that connect with and influence their audience.

    I specialise in advising individuals and businesses on how to build or protect reputations, deliver bespoke communications training and provide communication advice for winning campaigns.

    Reputation

    I have developed individual and corporate reputations for business leaders and their firms, senior politicians and charitable foundations across Europe, the US, the Middle East and Africa.

    Building a meaningful reputation takes time. I provide a premium, bespoke and discreet service, investing significant time and resources, working in partnership with my client, to advise and manage an individual’s reputation. As part of this I offer strategic advice on all aspects of communications as well as an ongoing mentor and development programme to build a first-class communicator.

    Training

    I love training people to be better communicators. It is the most rewarding thing I do. My view is every interaction is an opportunity to get your message across. I have coached and developed CEOs, presidents, prime ministers, sporting heroes and even a Nobel prize winner.

    I’ve also mentored novices, recent graduates and business start-ups. The training sessions I run are underpinned by a positive ethos making training fun. All the training is bespoke to fit exactly the requirements of the client no matter the level of experience; whether individuals or multi-national businesses looking to train staff across multiple sites or even countries.

    I am a Certified Practitioner of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) which I use to coach people and teams into being better communicators. 

    Whatever the communication challenge I devise a session or course to suit my clients needs.

    Campaigns

    I am an experienced adviser to political parties and campaigns having worked for the UK Conservative Party on multiple elections and advised directly George Osborne, David Cameron and Boris Johnson among many others. I have also advised politicians from a wide range of countries including presidential candidates in the US and Kenya.

    I have also advised local and national referendum campaigns as well as successful single issue pressure groups in north America, Europe and the UK.

    I can help to build a campaign from scratch, develop winning messages, add extra energy to a team, mentor and train candidates and staff as well as write speeches, articles or even TV adverts.
