More about Julie
My ambition in establishing a consultancy business was to gain variety and stimulation in my work whilst managing a good work/life balance around a young family – easier said than done! I enjoy the challenges faced in a consulting role, and aim to understand clients’ needs quickly in order to add value immediately.
Over the last 16 years, I have gained a unique blend of experience:
- Leadership counsel: providing corporate, marketing and communications counsel at senior level to a variety of pharmaceutical companies, SMEs and start-up companies
- Global communications leadership: extensive experience in-house at the FTSE100 pharmaceutical company, AstraZeneca
- Public relations: intense training and professional experience gained within some of the world’s leading Public Relations consultancies
- Integrated business communications strategy and planning
- Team leadership and individual mentoring

In addition to my core consultancy focus, as a self-employed Mum, I also like to get involved with supporting school communications, community fund-raising and womens’ business networking events.
Outside of work, my husband and I seem to spend our lives focused on our three young children, although I occasionally fit in some running and have a long-standing ambition to take up tennis and squash again…..perhaps one day?
