My response to the interesting call for posts by Dan Roth, Executive Editor, LinkedIn.
Rather than make the grandiose assumption that I have a right or the ability to 'share sage advice and personal stories', I thought i would just jot down some key thoughts.
So here goes, and please share and comment. I'd love to know what others think.
If I were 22, you great Graduates, you, I wish I knew these things...

Why we can’t all be Thought Leaders.
I cannot deny that I am a frequent user of the term ‘Thought Leader’ more often than not when fighting for its honour and integrity.
But that doesn’t temper by far my frustration at the seemingly relentless commoditisation of a skill only some can rightfully lay claim to.
Go serene, and you'll avoid them..

Me? I help organisations with their marketing and communications; with strategy and planning, the design, the look and the feel. I make marketing, messaging, collateral and online come alive.
Words and pictures, presentations, events, thought leadership, content, web sites, social media, internal - each tool, channel, place and space has a role to play and I direct those players to the maximum effect.
I am relentlessly customer and benefit focused; if the audiences can be identified, I can help you talk to them, engage them, persuade them, share with them then build relationships with them.
I am looking for a new challenge, whether freelance, contract, interim, consultancy or full-time permanent. I want to help organisations improve their marketing and improve the lives of others. Please do get in touch to talk about mutually rewarding opportunities, roles, marketing issues that need solving (trad and new media), or just to bounce some ideas around, please do get in touch.
The full marketing mix is there for a reason - so I use it, using messaging style, metaphor and tone to reflect you and your target audiences, talking to prospects and customers, where they are, in words they use, in places they meet.
I save you money, buying from agencies in a more effective way. I have a proven track record of getting the very best out of marketing and creative teams and external partners.
How? By always putting the thinking before the drawing, and by delivering marketing thinking in a more innovative, effective, engaging, and compelling way, that delivers tangible benefits.
I mentor, I coach, I lead and I work with colleagues to help them achieve their objectives in work, in their careers, in their understanding and application of the best in marketing, digital, events, design and advertising.
