I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT STORIES

Telling stories is my one true passion and I believe that every single one of you has a unique story to shout loud to a waiting world. From helping you craft your impactful brand message for your website’s about me page, helping you educate your audience with engaging stories on your blog or even just guiding you through what should be included in your elevator pitch – I will hold space for you and am determined that everyone should know how to tell a story.

Get noticed with disruptive content!

TOO MANY YEARS UNDER MY BELT

I have over 25 years corporate stakeholder and communications expertise, having supported large multi million pound projects across sectors as diverse as Finance, Property, Logistics & Transport and most recently the public sector as a Senior Communications Manager for Network Rail in the North East of Scotland. Now running The Modern Storyteller, I bring my skills to SMEs looking for that added extra!

HOT POTATOES

I have always specialised in stakeholder engagement and management, relationship building and communicating the complexities of large infrastructure projects to a wide audience. Often being at the sharp end of public opinion, I’m an expert at handling ’hot potato’ projects and how to best communicate the benefits & opportunities a project will deliver to the community, stakeholders and wider public.

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

From the City of London (long before the banking crash) via the Middle East, Tokyo, New York, and Glasgow I’ve been well traveled. After a very winding road, a couple of U-turns and a bump or 2, I now find myself on the idyllic far west coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Running The Modern Storyteller from here offers me the best of all worlds.
