contact me

If you’ve seen something you like in my services page, get in touch and let me know. The next step is usually arranging a free consultation chat so we can sort through exactly what you need, and how I can help.

You can email me:, message me via LinkedIn, or find me on Instagram (full disclosure: I kinda hate social media – ironic for a comms guy n’est pas? – but I’m fairly active on LinkedIn, and working on it with insta, any platform with tiny knitted frogs can’t be all bad, right?)

Whichever way you choose to get in touch I aim to reply within a couple of business days, but it can take longer.
