I’m a well-travelled writer and communications expert who works across continents and time-zones. Welcome to my digital space.
Here’s what I do:
Build bridges between external and internal stakeholders to develop communication strategies.
I manage creative and editorial content for organisations, making technical issues compelling to a wide range of audiences.
And, I’ve been responsible for the direction of social/digital media – setting the overall tone, identifying opportunities to improve the organisation’s digital presence and evaluating performance.
I’ve seen the challenges of addressing environment, health and other needs, whether working in the UK or carrying out assignments for OCHA in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh; UNICEF in Niger and Bangladesh; or UNFPA in Nigeria.
I’m always looking for ways to engage and express my thoughts and opinions about issues close to my heart – especially sustainability. This includes the critical matter of climate change which you can read here; or sudden UN humanitarian deployments to (for example) Bangladesh to report on the crisis facing the Rohingya people in 2017. And then, there’s the more lighthearted stuff, such as my travels through Asia.
