Meet Neil

My passion is crafting communications with meaning, purpose and value.  Communications that cause change and create connections.  Communications that make a difference in organisations who want to change the world (or themselves).

Powered by over 17 years in different parts of the communications industry (think marketing, PR and corporate communications specifically), I’ve built communications teams from the ground up, led a truly viral (20m views) campaign, and delivered exceptional human-level crisis response work.

I love what I do.  And I play well with others to do it.

When I’m not working for clients, I might be behind the mic for two podcasts I helped found (DocsFactor and Hello You).  Or I might be working out where two different, unfolding, blog experiments are going (Interacter and Contagious Truth).  Or striding through the countryside with my partner.  Or making appreciative noises over some new, beautiful, publication I’ve discovered in my local indie magazine shop.

Occasionally I get to events and have a camera popped in my face. For example, I had this to say about digital advertising in 2011.

Sometimes, I’ve been invited to contribute to other people’s podcasts too – for example I guested on Ryan Caliguri’s Cut The Crap podcast and Danielle Caldwell’s Re-Quilibrium.

Enough about me.  Let’s connect on Twitter or LinkedIn to talk about your story.  What brings you to this place in space and time?  And where do we go next?

In the meantime, if you need interim support (marketing, PR, branding, internal communications, press desk), communications strategy development, communications audits or crisis communications preparation, drop me a line.  I’d love to start asking questions.
