SPEAKING

Whether as a talking head on broadcast media, as a keynote speaker, on a panel or in front of a camera, I’ve shared my expertise on travel trends, adventure tourism and journalism. Radio appearances include BBC Radio 4 and Times Radio, previous events clients include Visit Wales, Tourism Australia, Tourism Tasmania and TravMedia.

TUTORIALS

Good writing is a craft. It uses tricks to engage and entertain; linguistic sleights of hand that can be learned. In bespoke personal tutorials, I share knowledge from 15 years’ experience in the travel media: guidebooks vs rags ’n’ mags; how to find stories; what sells and where; the perfect pitch; how to shape a killer intro and outro; structure and pace; how to make the job pay. Get in touch for details of rates.

CONSULTANCY

Engaging copy gets results not corporate jargon. I’ve edited pieces for the best in the business, from the Sunday Times Magazine and Telegraph to magazines like Q and Select. I can hone your words to make you sound human, thereby delivering your message more effectively. As an editorial consultant I’ve produced creative content for clients such as Visit Wales, Hotel Chocolat and tourism boards and tour operators. I also have contacts with photographers and film-makers who are, quite frankly, brilliant.
