Long term agency relationships

For over 20 years, I have successfully nurtured and developed close relationships with leading agencies and consultancies. I have variously been freelance, contracted and even a full time employee, although whatever the arrangement, I guarantee loyalty, dedication and commitment to our relationship. You’ll see that my relationships have spanned years, and in some cases, decades.

I remain inspired and enthused about these people, their projects and their passions.

IMAGINATION

1998 – 2014
SENIOR STRATEGIC WRITER

From 1998 to 2014, I enjoyed an extremely close relationship with the world’s leading independent brand experience agency Imagination – www.imagination.com – where I became a chameleon, developing the seriously satisfying role of Strategic Writer / Planner, combined with the open brief to liaise between client and creative teams.

I was variously freelance, contracted and employed by Imagination and worked at the highest level in collaboration with its Board Directors, both creative and strategic.

In the process, I was lucky enough to travel the world and work with some of the most inspiring people of my career, enjoying some of the most professionally rewarding experiences imaginable.

MILKWOOD TV

2018 – PRESENT

WILLIAMS & PHOA

1995 – 2000
COPYWRITER

Williams & Phoa was a boutique design house, highly respected for its high end corporate literature projects that included annual reports, graduate recruitment material and corporate positioning literature for blue chip clients in the City of London.

For three consecutive years, I wrote annual reports for WHSmith, the renowned British high street retailer, and the Woolwich, as it metamorphosised from building society to bank. I worked closely alongside the Boards of both companies, interviewing and working on a one-to-one basis with their Board Directors.

STOCKS AUSTIN SICE

1992 – 2000
ACCOUNT DIRECTOR & WRITER

I’m proud to say that I was the sixth person to join SAS, employed to generate my own clients and then manage their projects.

As time passed and a recession kicked in, my writing skills were recognised by the partners and I increasingly took on the role of in-house writer. Eventually SAS encouraged and helped me to launch my freelance writing career.

At Stocks Austin Sice, I learned that incredible design costs no more than bad design, and that a good accountant and lawyer are worth their weight in gold.
