I started writing this piece like I was writing my CV, telling you how I was an innovative and creative writer with over 30 years experience in Marketing and who has worked with some of the largest employers in Ireland and the UK.
But then I thought, if I were you and I was looking information on the person who is going to transform my thoughts and vision into beautifully crafted words, I'd want to know more about the thoughts, dreams and vision of the writer.
So this is me...
I live in the heart of the countryside in a beautiful part of Ireland, surrounded by rolling hills, sweeping valleys and lush green fields. It really is nature at its best and it is where I am at my happiest.
I am calm by nature. I don't stress or panic which is a trait I have thankfully inherited from my mum. My love for writing and creativity comes from my daddy who loved to tell stories, sing songs and enjoy a good night's craic. My personal values of integrity, honesty and respect come from both of them.
I have worked in the corporate world for over 30 years and have enjoyed a very successful career, working with some of the largest companies in the UK and Ireland. I look back on what I have achieved with pride. I've been involved in some amazing projects and campaigns but I think my greatest achievement will always be organising fundraising events which raised over £200,000 in two years for a number of very deserving charities.
Six months ago, I was still immersed in the corporate world, working for a large fit-out company in the cruise industry. And then came COVID-19. I was furloughed for four months and then made redundant. At first, it was a shock to the system but then I saw it for the opportunity that it was...a chance for me to get time and headspace to focus on me and on what makes me tick. I remembered that what I really love to do is write, I love to mentor people and I have a wealth of experience in marketing.
And here I am! Six months later, I've taken these three elements and started my own business. My ambition is to use my talents and experience to write beautifully crafted words for clients from every walk of life. If you would like to work with me, please fill in the contact form and I will be in touch.
There is no doubt that COVID-19 has been a game changer and has really stopped the world in its tracks. My daddy used to sing a song called Stop the World and Let me Off. It feels that the world did stop for a while. My hope is that when we all get back on and wherever we get back on, it will be a better world for all.
