Senior Content Manager
Nick spent a decade working on commercial magazines at Future Publishing in Bath, starting out as a staff writer and swiftly ascending the editorial ladder. Gaining his first editorship in 2006 pretty much did for what was left of his hair, but you’ll often hear him trotting out the line ‘grass doesn’t grow on a busy street’.
He left Future in 2010 to pursue new adventures in the online world, managing a portfolio of editorial-focused websites, running training programmes for budding writers, and drinking far too much black coffee.
Nick heads up Strategy’s team of writers, and is responsible for raising and maintaining the company’s exacting editorial standards.

After graduating she worked as a freelance marketing assistant for various services-based and e-commerce companies until she came to Strategy. Here, she is focusing on creative copywriting and learning new SEO techniques. When she’s not working or running her business she loves to scuba dive, paint and learn new languages.
