Consulting, Insight & Copywriting
I write copy for product labels, websites, brand stories, press releases and more.
I also love helping food and drink clients think differently about innovation, getting out of fixed thinking.
I’ve done this through a mix of exploration (cross-team ideation sessions grounded in storytelling), research (macro, category and marketplace, surveys, interviews) and analysis, in order to identify gaps and opportunities, create and test range concepts and build value cases – my background as a writer means I take a creative approach to everything I do, and I love presenting findings and recommendations in a fun, accessible way to project stakeholders.
My work is wide-ranging. I’ve researched new flavours to explore, led and presented customer insight that resulted in a range of award-winning retail ketchups, simplified how an umbrella company communicates what it does, and coached an entrepreneur to identify successful press opportunities.
Here’s my portfolio – do get in touch if you’d like to discuss working together.
