Interested in commissioning me to write for your publication?
I’m a professionally trained writer with many years experience and can’t work for free. Please bear this in mind on initial approach.
Interested in booking me as a speaker at your event?
Before you get in touch, please think about the fee you’re able to offer e.g. will it be enough to cover the time spent preparing ahead of the event i.e. doing specific background reading and the preparation/writing of materials, and whether my travel costs will be covered, along with factoring in time spent travelling.
Interested in asking me to contribute to your research/academic project?
Please send a full outline describing the nature of the project, exactly what input you’d like from me, your projected outcomes and which groups of people will ultimately benefit. I’m only able to help for suitable remuneration.
Pro bono work
I decide how much pro bono work I can feasibly afford to do at the beginning of each tax year. Once I reach my quota, I’m unable to say ‘yes’ to anymore requests. But I refresh this pledge each year, so if you’ve had an initial ‘no’, feel free to get back in touch at a later date.
Requests to ‘pick my brain’ will be treated as consultations and will incur a charge. Please bear this in mind before you get in touch.
