I started the business in January 2020 with three clients: Hampden & Co (the private bank), Equiniti (the global financial services company) and Missions That Matter (a stragic coaching business). I'm writing for all three organisations (blogs, white papers, conference reports) and doing what I do best – bringing often complex topics to life with intelligent, compelling copy.
I've also since been working with four Scotland-based agencies – Stand, Resolve, xDesign and with my old colleagues at White Light Media. To date, this has included writing book, magazine and blog content, as well as preparing public sector procurement submissions (something I've done a fair amount of in my time).
Podcasts and live interviews
Since September 2018, I've been producing a fortnightly podcast series for the Scottish Business Network, interviewing some of the biggest personalities in the world of Scottish business. Some of the podcast episodes (pre-COVID19) were recorded live in London in front of an audience of Scottish business folk.
I also manage the Twitter and Linkedin accounts for the Library of Mistakes, a wonderful initiative designed to encourage the world to learn from the mistakes of the past. This Edinburgh-based free public library has almost 4,000 books, with an emphasis on finance and business, but also covering politics, art, science and all aspects of human life. It's the beginning of a global initiative – there is now also a Library of Mistakes in India, with others in England, Switzerland and the US to follow. I post regular nuggets of wisdom from the library (well worth a follow) and am honoured to be a key-holder.
