About Me

Entrepreneurial business leader from the marketing and advertising industry, passionate about helping companies make their money work effectively by finding the best way to build a brand and to engage consumers in an ever more complex environment.

1. Brand communication where brutal simplicity of thought is needed - brand strategy or story telling - making the complex simple.
2. Communication strategy - what should you do vs what could you do.
3. Coaching - helping people thrive and not just survive - the actions you can take to make a difference vs the intentions you talk about taking.

What is Operator?

Operator is a platform that enables anyone or any brand seeking advice, support or feedback to connect one-on-one with a curated group of global leaders, one video call at a time.

Who is Operator for?

Operator is for any individual or brand that is seeking domain expertise advice, business strategy guidance, mentorship or support from our curated group of leading marketers and communications specialists.

How is Operator different than the Publicist marketplace?

Operator was created to support individuals who are looking for advice, support or inspiration from Experts. Operators share guidance but they do not produce any tangible deliverables. While brands can hire talent from Publicist platform for strategic support, The Publicist marketplace is geared towards brands who are looking to hire talent to execute on specific projects or deliverables. The Publicist marketplace and Operator offerings are complementary. With Operator, individuals and brands will gain valuable insights and get specific guidance on anything from how to scale a business, to what it is like to run a marketing and communications team and so much more. Once they’ve received advice, they can go to the Publicist marketplace and search for talent to execute on new initiatives.
