For over 25 years I have been helping organisations to understand young people and to shape their products and services in order to maximise the engagement of teens and young adults.

I understand young people. I know how to build youth strategies that will meet organisational objectives, I know to undertake youth research that will improve understanding and I know how to create youth brands and campaigns that will inspire & engage young people to find out more about a brand, product or service.

Over 25 years I have worked with local and national organisations across a multitude of youth sectors including education, employment, life skills, health and wellbeing, sport and actvity and housing. I was also a key member of a government commission (above) looking at youth employment and enterprise. 

Reaching and engaging teen and young adults is extermely difficult - as a result I have had to build my own innovative methods and channels to do so. I underpin all my projects with a #TeenStrategy - a plan and programme of activity that delivers against targets and identified strategic outputs. 

If you would like to discuss a potential project please contact us on 01422 250070 or complete the webform below.


In the summer of 2019, I published my first book Destination Adulthood.

Over 230 pages it demonstrates my knowledge of teen and young adult audiences and my ability to turn this expertise into a tangiable and desirable resource. I am committed to working with organisations with products and services that improve young lives. If you would like to discuss this more please contact me via the webform below.
