profile pic.001I’m a brand strategist. I’ve worked at ad agencies in London, Singapore and Bangkok and was MD of a well known brand consultancy. I now work primarily with ambitious SMEs and business owners as Head of Brand at GillHarrisJames. I also run HMKD, which develops communication strategies for companies committed to more sustainable and ethical behaviour. You can find out more about me on Linked In and follow me on Twitter.

I write about branding and advertising but also politics, ethics and life in general. Some of the latter is very personal, including the challenge of coming to terms with death of one of my children. However it carries – I hope – an underlying message that, although life can throw some terrible things at you, it is possible to pick yourself up and smile again. These posts are under the ‘Life’ category which you will find when you click the filter at the top left on the blog page.

Please feel free to contact me about any of the subjects I write about or if you want to find out more about my work. You can email me by clicking the mail icon at the top right of this page or just send me a message on Twitter.
