The Singing Ache – #mundanemiracle

I’m so thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Tarcher Perigee to help promote Tyler Knott Gregson's latest book Miracle In The Mundane. I have loved Tyler’s work since I first stumbled across his iconic typewriter series and was incredibly excited for the release of his latest work. Miracle In The Mundane offers something [...]

Unconventional Wisdom

Yesterday, I had the great pleasure of attending TEDxManchester. It was a fascinating, inspiring day and my brain is still mulling over all the interesting ideas that were presented. Eventually - when I've had time to fully digest the day - I will write a post sharing some of my favourite ideas and take-aways. As [...]

The Power Of Storytelling

Off On The Right Foot

It's August bank holiday Monday which can only mean one thing...the summer holidays are nearly over and autumn is nearly here. For some, this wouldn't really be a happy thought - no more long, light days in the sun, back to school and work for those lucky enough to have had a break. But it [...]

Off On The Right Foot

This seems like an apt quote for this week as in a few days time I'll be joining the epic team at Smith Goodfellow PR for their next charity event - climbing the Welsh three peaks to raise money for The Wellspring Kitchen and Crash, two charities working to tackle homelessness and support those who [...]
