Like most people I have an ego, but I'm far more interested in how my well-chosen words will make the people and businesses I write for really shine!
I work with warmth, understanding and lashings of humour wherever possible – though I take my clients' needs seriously and I'll work hard and for as long as it takes to get your story absolutely right. I have an unhealthy obsession with doing a good job.
I just wanted to say that I think you did a super job on my CV, and I very much appreciated the conversation we had as part of the process - I really felt that you were trying to understand my motivations and priorities in order to reflect them well on the CV, and I think it does just that!

I don't work from templates, and most of my services begin with a consultation, either face to face or via telephone/Skype. Talking to you is how I can best understand your story and how to tell it, and this personalised approach is the reason I can offer so much versatility in the services I provide.
Everyone is different, everyone's story is different, and whether you're looking for some glossy website copy for your new business, you're a 62 year-old welder who has always wanted to see your life story on paper, or you're an 18 year-old college leaver looking to put your first CV together, we'll work together so that you sound like you.
My previous life as a City-based Head of HR for a number of assorted industries means that I'm able to provide real-world advice on recruitment issues from both sides of the interview desk. I've written and scrutinised more CVs than I care to mention and I've learned more than enough from my own recruitment-based blunders in the early days of my career, to be able to pass on some sound and robust insights that really work.
When you speak with me, I hope you'll find me friendly and approachable, quick to get to the point of your story, and someone who tries very hard indeed never to use confusing jargon.
