I'm Josie.

Profile

I'm a curious, business-focused marketer, with a flair for rich concepts that are creatively powerful and strategically robust. I have four years' experience in marketing, events, PR, new business, advertising and media. What has helped me excel and win business has been a deep interest in brands and why people connect with them, as well as my immense drive to continually learn. I firmly believe in protecting the new. Concepts are fragile in their infancy, and a culture of supporting and evolving new thinking is important to me.

Experience

Before freelancing, I worked in the marketing and new business departments of media, advertising and PR agencies, meaning that I have experience taking briefs in a huge number of disciplines and industries, including beauty, tech, luxury, retail, fashion, consumer goods, charity, travel, supermarkets, health, corporate, and food and drink. I've worked in both start-ups, 6,000 people-strong companies and voluntary organisations.
