I believe there’s more to life than just the 9-5 so in my spare time I’m usually busy working on….
THE FREELANCE CIRCLE
I founded The Freelance Circle in 2017 with the mission to improve business on both sides when it comes to freelance. Not just because it makes life easier, but because it makes business sense. The F/C gives freelancers and agencies the chance to anonymously share their experience and get a heads up on each other.
Knowing what freelancers think of your agency helps you do more of the good stuff, or improve on the bits that aren't quite right so you can attract the best freelancers in town. It's also acts as a great hub for freelancers to go to for trusted advice on what agencies are treating freelancers well, and what agencies, well, aren't.
My mission is to be the number 1 freelance knowledge hub in the advertising, marketing and design world.

SHESAYS & WHO’S YOUR MOMMA
In 2017 I was elected the first ever president of SheSays, the global organisation for women in advertising and marketing. I led the team here in London, ran a number of events, created partnerships with the likes of Soho House & The Lovvies Awards and re built their mentor scheme, Who’s Your Momma. I was recognised for my volunteer work with the organisation by several organisations such a Creative Equals, Campaign Magazine & The Drum.
Although I am no longer involved in the day to day running of the scheme I still support, give talks and mentor young women.
BEYOND THE 1%
When people have a great business idea they usually don’t won’t to share it. The truth is the idea is usually only 1% of the business plan. In today's connected world it’s all about how a plan is executed. Beyond the 1% Workshops gives individuals an opportunity to test their elevator pitch with a panel of experts from Brand Strategy to Venture Capital to Customer Experience Design. These events will run in 2019 and are a collaboration with myself and Creative Adventurer and author Jade Tomlin.
