Background

Summary

I'm a post-graduate-trained journalist and editor, with 13 years of experience in publishing.

I head up web, publishing and online community management for Legal Support Network. My role is a mix of independent editorial commissioning and generation, customer publishing, online community engagement, marketing and copywriting, client engagement and print and online production/oversight.

This includes managing multiple LinkedIn groups, Twitter feeds, work on Facebook and other social media channels - alongside editing our flagship digital magazine Briefing and its printed supplement, Briefing Extra.

Briefing is an e-zine that we also print several times a year, aimed at people in law firm management in the top 200 UK law firms. Briefing Extra is a printed supplement to Briefing, focusing each time on just one or two law firm management roles or a single subject.
