Whiskey in the jar


No Comments

Januarys are pretty unattractive.

At least, they usually are. Post-Christmas blues, gloomy cold weather and to make it worse, I’ve been keeping off the alcohol all month in an attempt to do a ‘dry January’.

But this year, there has been a little shot of excitement with the management of a shoot for rock photographer Nick Elliott on location with classic rockers Thin Lizzy. (more…)

The twelve clients of Christmas


No Comments

As a consultant I’m on the constant look-out for opportunities to promote my clients and, with time at a premium, it is often difficult to dedicate any effort to promoting myself!

So, this festive season, I decided to create a small campaign to raise awareness of the range of services I offer amongst existing clients and to encourage potential clients to commission me.

Having cultivated a decent amount of followers on the social networking sites I’m active on, I decided to use this medium to communicate a simple message on a daily basis, with a view to creating repetition and cultivating expectation. (more…)

Every year I carve a pumpkin for Halloween so I thought I’d share it with you.

It’s gone down really well with the trick-or-treaters this year, although I think it may have scared a couple of the little ones!

Hope you like it…..Happy Halloween.

Are you sitting comfortably?

As we go through life, I believe that we all have the responsibility to give a little back as we go.  Lend a helping hand where we can or give someone a boost on their own journey.

One of the most rewarding parts of my career to-date has, undoubtedly, been my time imparting my communications knowledge to students of the crafts of marketing and PR.

Over the past 11 years I’ve been engaged in the transferral of knowledge for the Cambridge Marketing College and this weekend had the pleasure of tutoring a wonderful group of delegates in Manchester.
