||I write speeches for executives as well as drafting articles, reports, presentations and website material for a range of clients. As a speechwriter and copywriter, I specialise in sustainability issues, particularly climate change, and also have experience in the sectors of energy, pharmaceuticals, communications technology and law. As a consultant, I have helped many organisations design communications strategies and handle media relations.
I am also climate change adviser to the business 'think-and-do tank', Tomorrow's Company.
Before starting my writing business, I worked as a senior producer on the BBC Radio Today programme. I was also press secretary to Liberal Democrat leader Paddy Ashdown and BT’s corporate speechwriter. As a writer and consultant, I have worked with a wide range of clients, including BP, BT, Clifford Chance and The World Business Council for Sustainable Development. I mainly work at home in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, UK, where I live with my wife Katie and our children Tom and Lucy.
