When I took a career break to have a family, my background in corporate communications, customer service and sales, was valuable in the voluntary work that I undertook which in turn has led to professional employment.

From securing national media coverage for clients in the classical music business, managing social media, branding, and local press and advertising campaigns, I’m involved in projects of all shapes and sizes working with professionals and volunteers. I work with a deliberately small roster of clients, and create a tailor made package to suit their individual needs and budget.

Running realistically targeted media campaigns and building brand awareness, projects and successes include:

  • Running the campaign for public votes resulting in Scratch Youth Messiah winning the Best Classical Music Education Initiative in the Music Teacher Awards for Excellence 2015
  • Classic FM: podcasts, webchats and photo features
  • Interviews on BBC Radio 2 The Sunday Hour, BBC Radio 3 In Tune, BBC Radio 4 Midweek, BBC One Countryfile and BBC local radio
  • News items with ITV London and ITV Meridien
  • Interviews, reviews and photos in regional, national and the music press
  • Writing content and co-managing the redesign of www.lhmf.org.uk
  • Redesigning and writing newsletters including interviewing musicians
  • Rebranding and redesigning printed publicity material
  • Introducing email marketing
  • Social media management

For continuing professional development, I have attended many Charity Comms seminars and conferences.

Whilst in recent years I have focused on publicity, I am also available for arts administration, voice over work and public speaking.
