Before committing to Rhetoric’s Marketing and PR services, you might like to know a little about me, the man behind the company.

With reference to my quote above, invention and creativity are at the heart of everything I do. I have a varied and vast amount of media experience across the board, from working in Public Relations to “Behind the microphone” broadcasting.

Diageo-brandsMuch of the past quarter of a century has been spent working in PR, both externally for agencies and internally for United Distillers, the former spirits division of Guinness ( now Diageo ). During that time I was privileged to be involved in the marketing and promotion ( including sponsorship ) of dynamic, high profile brands like Gordons Gin, Smirnoff, Johnnie Walker and Bells Whisky, and Pimms to mention a few.

My eclectic roles in public relations, mean that I have an immense amount of experience and expertise in marketing and promoting not just blue chip corporate organisations and their brands, but also small to medium sized enterprises.

I have also spent a number of years, working on the other side of the fence promoting some of the largest national and regional newspaper groups – United Provincial Newspapers ( Flagship – The Daily and Sunday Express ), Northcliffe ( owned by DMGT / Daily Mail Group ) and Yorkshire Post Magazines.

In between times I have found time, to be a presenter on commercial radio in the East Midlands.

Having worked on both sides of the media fence, as a supplier and purveyor of information, news and entertainment, I am in a unique position to have experienced a duality of roles as game keeper and poacher.

In essence this means that I understand the both the needs of the commercial enterprise, and the requirements and criteria of the print and broadcast media.

I can bring all of that to your door of your office or boardroom at a very affordable price.

I hope that you will give me an opportunity to help promote your business and brand.
