I am a social media consultant specialising in Facebook and Instagram marketing, including advertising. I work with small to medium sized businesses who have the vision and budget to scale through social media and advertising. For smaller businesses who don’t have the budget to outsource completely, I offer individual training and consultancy packages.
In my previous career as a solicitor I worked for some of the world’s largest law firms, including Clifford Chance LLP and Sidley Austin LLP. Based mainly in London, although I also spent a fantastic 6 months working in Tokyo! Ten years of giving commercially focused advice to clients, and of legal marketing and practice development, have left me with plenty of experience and transferable skills to draw on in my new career. Not least an obsessive attention to detail!
I was inspired to retrain in this still relatively new and exciting area, because I had seen what social media could achieve for the businesses and causes that I cared about. I am also a big believer in lifelong-learning and non-linear career paths! Many of the businesses I have worked with have been start-ups run by people who are changing direction or embarking on new ventures and I bring my own experience and empathy to working with them. It’s never too late to begin something new!
