My career began by starting a small publishing company and growing both the company and the skills required for every position in it.

Book publishing skills that have been used throughout my communications career:

  • Writing and editing

  • Office management
  • Marketing, publicity and managing customers
  • Managing inventory
  • Managing projects and schedules
  • Design
  • Events
  • Managing budgets
  • Managing staff and human resources

This background has meant that my approach is entrepreneurial, innovative and flexible with a personal stake in success.
