Excuse the mess, I'm redeveloping the site and some things are displaying poorly. Give me a week!

[section background_color=”#A25CA5″ text_color=”light” title=”” extra_class=””] [slogan title=”Intranet design and reader-centred communications,
from Wedge in the UK” animation=”true”] Next event, maybe: Intranet Now conference, 9th October 2020, London.
[/slogan] [twothirds] I help medium and large organisations plan and design the structure, navigation, governance, and content for their intranets.

I also assist small orgs with content marketing and social media management.
You can hire me with very little fuss, for one afternoon or an extended project. I generally work from my home office and I work around London and Birmingham, but I travel across the UK as needed. You’ll see me on Twitter most days.

You might have read my blog for the past decade, when I was in ‘MarComms‘ for a couple of large companies – now you can get to know me better as a freelancer.

Beyond working for and with some smashing companies and people, I do my best to contribute to the intranet, comms, and digital workplace professions. I founded the Intranet Now conference – the only independent intranet conference in the UK. I hope you’ll attend in 2019.

[timeline] [timeline_aside title=”From corporate comfort to independent hustler”]My career progression has been logical and fairly smooth. As a corporate communicator I endeavoured to focus on internal communications and the intranet, but was often tasked with managing the company website as well. I also led a million pound SharePoint project; it’s true what they say — it’s not all about the technology (it’s about people).

Later, as a full-time intranet consultant, I helped a score of small to large organisations plan and launch their new intranets. Now, as an independent specialist, I’m fortunate enough to work with some well-known intranet consultancies and design agencies.

I work from my home office and travel around London and the Midlands to meet clients, and work in a team when needed.

I’m still hands-on with intranets, but a lot of my time is spent writing about intranets, collaboration, and communication.
