Coaching Culture magazine: Covid-19 special edition

October 2020


It was a privilege to be part of the team putting together this fantastic edition of Coaching Culture magazine and hearing how these leading organisations have dealt with all the challenges created by the pandemic. So many inspiring stories - it was really uplifting to be part of it.

Supporting businesses during difficult times

July 2020


I've been very fortunate to be able to continue supporting businesses during what has turned out to be a year like no other. That included working with the newly formed North Wales Social team to help them with the PR for the launch of their new business community platform. It's fantastic to be involved with other companies who are keen to support those around them during this challenging period.


Stay safe everyone.

Fundraising with Classical Crossover stars

May 2020


It was a privilege to be part of a team helping music promoter Jannie Rawlinson raise funds to keep Wrexham radio station Calon FM on the air last year.  Jannie organised a Classical Crossover concert that took place in October, which was an absolute triumph. Not only was the target amount raised, but the concert received rave reviews from a global audience (and, as someone lucky enough to be there in person, from me!). It's been wonderful to have stars from that night subsequently join Jannie once more, this time virtually, to raise over £1000 for our amazing NHS.

2019 news

Merry Christmas!

December 2019


It's been an incredibly busy year but I finally managed to get along to one of the West Cheshire Women's Networking events! It was a great morning and got us all in the festive mood. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

A lovely surprise

August 2019


You can imagine how delighted I was when this turned up from one of my clients to say thanks for the work I'd done for them! It was a very kind gesture that was greatly appreciated.

Coaching Culture magazine is nominated for an award!

March 2019


I've been writing for Coaching Culture magazine since it began last year. You can imagine how exciting it was to discover it had been nominated by the Institute for Organisational Development for its 'OD Publication of the Year 2019' award. So to then go and be awarded the Runner Up position was amazing, especially for a magazine that's only in its first year!

North Wales Business Exhibition

November 2018


It was great catching up with local businesses at the 2018 North Wales Business Exhibition this month. Sadly my golfing talents were not sufficiently good enough to help me win a bottle of prosecco from Tree Frog Digital but there's always next year...

I finally made it to a networking event!

October 2018


It's been a while but I managed to get along to October's #northwalestweets Tweet Up held at Hawarden Airport's Chocks Away. Another excellent event - and the cakes went down rather well too. 

2018 is becoming Grangewood Copywriting's busiest year ever

May 2018


Sorry for the lack of updates...2018 is turning out to be my busiest year yet! Ongoing work for retainer clients has combined with a stream of new clients (including working for a print magazine) and all in all, it's a pretty hectic year. But I wouldn't want it any other way!

2017 news

Dragons and turtles

July 2017


I was pleased to help out my friends from North Wales Hour and charity North Wales Dragons with a press release for their twitter workshop that took place at the start of the month. And at the end of June during a Chamber networking event I had the pleasure of listening to a talk from the owner of Anglesey Sea Zoo, Frankie Hobro, about Menai the Turtle's travels. There is a definite animal theme coming through at the moment!

2016 news

Pancreatic Cancer fundraising gala a big success

December 2016


What an amazing night. The gala evening was a sell out with many local businesses coming together to raise funds for this important charity. Entertainment was provided by the extremely talented Tom Spence - you can read more in one of my pre-event press releases.

Working with James Caan and his Recruitment Guide team

October 2016


It was very exciting to come face to face with business entrepreneur and Dragon’s Den investor James Caan (well, almost face to face - Skype and Zoom) and to be asked to do some copywriting work for him. I also had the pleasure of joining in with some of his Recruitment Guide team meetings and finding out more about the world’s first recruitment hub that he launched in 2016. It’s well worth checking out if you’re in the recruitment industry - go to if you’re thinking about recruitment training and consultancy.


Flintshire Business Week 2016

September 2016


I find it amazing to think a year has passed since I was last at the Flintshire Business Week exhibition! Time goes very fast (and that's my excuse for failing to keep this News section as up to date as perhaps I should...). It was great to see so many of my clients and friends there - sometimes my job really doesn't feel like work at all.

Delighted to be helping with publicity for The Green Pages' charity fundraising gala evening taking place on the 4th November at Chester's Crowne Plaza Hotel. For ticket information visit

Fab Accessories

March 2016


Having met entrepreneur Alison Hitchen via #Chesterhour, I was really saddened to hear about the sudden death of her boyfriend and business partner John Wilkins. But she's doing something amazing as a result of it by donating 10% of all sales from her business FAB Accessories to Wythenshawe Hospital and Grangewood Copywriting was proud to do its bit by helping Alison out with PR for her campaign.



A great start to the year - Blog of the Week!

January 2016


A great start to 2016 with an HR client telling me that an article I've written on their behalf was Blog of the Week on a leading industry website!
