Storytelling and imaginative comms - this is what transforms people’s thinking. You know it. As do I (partly because my first job involved scooting around Scotland selling surgical gowns and catheters – that defo required imagination). People loving what they do – and being empowered to think differently? That’s when great things happen. And it’s why we created H&H!
90% of the messages processed by our brains are visual. And they’re processed 60,000 times faster than text (this is a fact – not out of a Christmas cracker!). So, it makes sense why images are such a potent comms tool. Lifting someone into a story through animation – and transfixing them to the last frame? Nothing beats it (aside from maybe chicken and chips).
From Hollywood to Hullywood, I love all things visual – especially film. Having spent the last decade organising productions, actors and crew on films (think James Bond and Star Wars), I’m used to balancing tasks and co-ordinating people and resources. So I’m a pro at ensuring all the cogs are turning smoothly and the show can go on – on the silver screen and at H&H.
Looking for the truth – an engaging story, backed up with hard facts? Turn to the data. It won’t let you down. I make data easier to understand – taking dashing insights into statistical methods and bringing it to life to make sure everyone’s in the loop and everything’s working efficiently. And if that involves a spreadsheet or a pretty little graph that’s fine by me.
Would you like to hear a story? Bet that’s a “yes”. Storytelling is at the heart of Internal Communications – and it’s all about the emotions. Successfully tug on heart strings and you’ll boost engagement faster than you could launch a rocket. But behind every story is a great strategy and that’s where I fit in. Give me any IC problem, and I’ll help you write the perfect best seller.
What’s 20+ years of helping creative agencies develop stellar client relationships and attract new business given me? An eye-opening insight into many well-loved brands – from Mars and Alpro to Seiko. And the realisation the most vibrant businesses usually have a fantastic story to tell. It’s a blast to bring this experience (and a bit of fun) to H&H.
I’ve been described as ‘a ball of energy fuelled by coffee’. I’d say that’s pretty accurate. With a background in architecture and interior design, I now put my heart, soul and copious caffeine intake into making sure our creative projects have a real edge. That they engage, excite and support an employee’s wellbeing and engagement as much as their performance.
I’m all about bringing creativity to briefs – clambering around to uncover those light bulb ideas for our clients. I like taking something complex and turning it into an ‘oh wow!’ moment that everyone gets. When I’ve not got my head buried in Adobe, I’m most likely travelling the country with my camera, snapping away. Whether that be mountains, gin or the H&H team.
It’s how your people think and feel throughout their journey with your organisation. Give them a reason to relish it.
