I like telling stories that bring about change - and that’s what we specialise in.

Senior Consultant

I joined Linstock for the chance to apply communications techniques to high-quality research, and because I love good stories. Whether producing global research on women in business over a six month period or reacting to energy industry news as it breaks, we use evidence and creativity to help organisations get good ideas heard.

I currently provide strategic communications advice to clients including Grant Thornton International and Baringa Partners. On a practical level, this work involves planning and delivering communications campaigns, carrying out quantitative and qualitative research, writing reports and articles, and handling media relations. On a more fundamental level, it requires getting to the core of what a company wants and believes, so that what we create becomes part of its DNA. That’s why every new idea begins with a listening exercise that puts collaboration before anything else.

Before joining Linstock, I worked in the social sector, first with charity think tank New Philanthropy Capital and then for social advisory business The Social Innovation Partnership, and children and youth evidence hub Project Oracle. Prior to that, I started out in corporate and financial PR and did a six-month stint in Berlin running events for an NGO.

I have a BA in History of Art from the University of Cambridge, and an MA in International Studies and Diplomacy from SOAS.
