Educational services

I now provide all commercial services through the content agency FLONG. Please click through for details.

Each university is different, but every one needs to communicate effectively – with alumni, with academics, staff and students, and with potential benefactors.

I’ve worked with three of Britain’s top four universities in the global rankings, plus business schools, conservatoires, arts colleges, and industry bodies in the HE sector. My services include:

  • Alumni engagement. The right alumni communications can help maintain a lifelong relationship with graduates. I've launched and edited magazines that bring news-stand values to university publishing, and written prolifically for alumni audiences in print and online.
  • News and features. Whether it’s a research breakthrough, a new building or a graduate success story that you’d like to publicise, I’ll get the message across in a way that appeals to your readership.
  • Donor engagement. Philanthropy is essential for universities to carry out their core mission. I’m used to writing material aimed at benefactors and potential donors.
  • Ghostwriting. I put together conference papers, speeches, opinion pieces and prefaces on behalf of busy vice-chancellors, administrators and senior academics.
