Content Strategist, Business Writer, Best-Selling Author, founder of award-winning resource HowToWriteBetter.net
Introduction

Particularly if you're the busy owner of an SME or other organization, you may not have the time or inclination to work through the best strategy to achieve your marketing objectives ... and then develop the targeted written or spoken words that make them happen. 

This is why I can help you

With a background in journalism, copywriting and TV/corporate scriptwriting, I've devised and written communication projects for dozens of clients including the Ford Motor Co., General Motors Europe, LandRover, BWM UK, AXA Insurance, Eli Lilly, Macmillan Cancer Support, the NHS, etc. at the corporate end, plus dozens of exciting and inspiring SMEs/micro-businesses at the smaller end. The experience and know-how I have gained (and there's always room for more) are outstanding. 

With that plus more than 30 published nonfiction books out there, two of which have been organic #1 best sellers on Amazon, I've earned my place in the top ranks of business writing, blogging and content writing strategists across the major English language markets.

Here's how I can help you - choose from...

**HELP TO ASSESS how best to communicate your marketing
**PLANNING your written business communication strategy across all media 
**COPYWRITING the words for your website, blog, social media, print, etc.
**SCRIPTWRITING and INTERVIEWING for your videos
**RECOMMENDATIONS of trusted fellow specialists and experts for allied help 
**TRAINING to help you write for yourself, either 1-2-1 or in workshops

Plus, take a look at http://HowToWriteBetter.net - a site I started from scratch in 2011 that's now a PR3 with more than 2 million page views ... winner of the Highly Commended Award in the UK Blog Awards 2015 ... and honored in Guy Kawasaki's Alltop.com as one of their top 300 social media sites worldwide. More than 1,000 articles on, well, how to write better - across all disciplines. It's a very useful resource.

I look forward to learning how I can help you.
