I believe actions speak louder than words, so with that in mind, I’m always on the lookout for ways our clients can make a difference to communities or wider society, and communicate it well. I work with several clients whose work is truly transformative, and that gives me great pride in the work we do together.
What area of work do I enjoy the most? Aside from getting to work with multinational clients on their response to major issues like the handling of the Covid crisis or deforestation of the world’s rainforests, the journalist in me means I enjoy nothing more than a busy media launch day. To this day it gives me an adrenaline rush. That, or developing strategies from scratch, starting from a different place, and watching the team’s collective ideas turn into an excellent piece of work.
I’m passionate about social justice and equality and the fact that I’m able to pursue that inside and outside of work, whilst making a difference with some of the world’s best-known brands, is amazing. I sit on several boards, including Street Soccer Scotland and genocide-education charity Remembering Srebrenica Scotland, both of which are very close to my heart.
