I have over 25 years experience as a communicator - as a writer, editor and media relations consultant.
I listen carefully to help you establish your key messages and make sure these are clearly communicated to the right audience.
I make complex, technical and unfamiliar material easy to understand. I have also produced material for children.
Much of my work has focused on medicine and the environment but I am equally happy working over a wide range of topics - I have been the marketing officer for a small arts organisation and the editorial project manager for a children’s encyclopaedia.
I can find a media angle whatever your context. I have delivered an award winning campaign on a controversial environmental issue, a campaign which was never expected to generate much media interest - yet stimulated hundreds of print media stories, numerous radio interviews and TV coverage.
I'm an effective communicator beyond the written word - I've managed and motivated editorial teams, recruited and supervised teams of volunteers and liaised very effectively with local community groups.
I also offer media training in conjunction with a colleague and work closely with associate graphic designers and web designers.

"I first read Susan's work in the Biomedical Scientist and was very impressed at how she took a complex subject and made it readable and easy to understand. She has since been involved in a number of projects and has excelled at all of these ... She liaises throughout with clients - ensuring their message is delivered accurately. I have recommended her to numerous other clients and still utilise her services." Elise Maynard, Chair, Water Management Society
