Who am I, and what do I do?

My decade-long career has seen my writing take me in directions I could never have predicted.

I have worked on a huge range of campaigns for multinational corporations and startups, via both agencies and direct contacts.

I specialise in creating content marketing that people look forward to reading. But I am equally happy writing web copy, video scripts and promotional material for businesses large and small.

I have also written long-form features on sport, finance, lifestyle and mental health for some of my favourite websites and publications, including BBC.co.uk, FourFourTwo, When Saturday Comes Sifted and the i Paper.

But whatever the brief, my aim is the same: to write accessibly yet authoritatively, cutting through the noise so your message comes through loud and clear. I know what works, and I know how to write it.

Why work with me?

My adaptability and easy-going nature are as important as the quality of my work.

Having worked on such varied projects over the last decade, I have honed my writing style into something which can fit any job, of any size, in any industry. My work is natural and conversational in tone, informing and entertaining, never overly-complicated or patronising to the audience.

Agencies work with me because I am unflappable, even when faced with the tightest of deadlines.

(did I mention I’ve never missed a deadline? I certainly don’t intend to start now…)

And my direct clients use me because I am able to produce agency-quality work with the value for money, flexibility and personal touch that working on my own allows. I am based in London but have worked with companies based in all corners of the UK as well as Europe and Australia.

So if you’re an agency that requires reliable, high quality content, or a company looking to build a brand or tell your story in a new way, I would love to hear from you. Get in touch today to discuss how I can help.

We have worked with Olly regularly over the last couple of years, and would have no hesitation in recommending him for copy or writing work. Everything he’s done for us has been of the highest standard and we will be continuing to work with him in the future.

Olly is a natural communicator. As a copywriter he has the ability to swiftly understand the requirement of each client and audience and then create engaging and convincing marketing content. In this busy digital age, this is critically important. I am very pleased to recommend him as a writer.
Adrian Barradell, Founder, Clarify Communications
Olly is a brilliant writer who has consistently delivered on brief for both client and UMPR projects. Incredibly easy to work with, creative and punctual, he really understands the needs of his clients, whatever the industry. This in my mind really sets him apart from others.
Ula McCarthy, Founder, Ula McCarthy PR
Olly was prompt and proactive throughout the research and writing of his WiseTribes pieces. Given the quality of his work we would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to others..
Mark Maddock, Wise Tribes
Olly did a terrific job for us! He was nice to speak to over email and phone, really quick to deliver on the brief and his work was really stellar. We’d be happy to work with Olly again!
Caroline Petersson, Sifted
Olly was great! He produced a well-researched blog within our brand guidelines, he made it a very interesting read and it was delivered efficiently on time. Looking forward to working with Olly again and highly recommend for anyone else too.
