Hi Matt. Here’s a little about me.
I work with small businesses who want to increase digital engagement with their brands. After 20 years helping customers make the right decisions in sales face to face, my role morphed into graphics, marketing, and content management. Over the last 7 years, I’ve helped customers make the right decisions behind the scenes through copywriting, social media and design.
I wanted to give you a more relevant idea of what I can do, so I took the liberty of rewriting your most recent blog post to remove the passive voice and improve readability – I hope you like it.
I thought I’d give you a relevant example of what I can do, so here’s a post from your blog I rewrote to remove passive voice and improve readability.
I shot photographs at Goodfest 2019 for festival co-founders, Leap. They worked with Ben Akers and Claire Wilkinson from MadeWith+, and Laura Giles from Cultivator Cornwall to bring the event to life.

Mark Ripley – Headcastlab & elephant
Matt had many and varied roles at HCL, and despite everyone’sbest efforts to overload him with an endless stream of tasks that noone else wanted to do, he always remained calm, professional,focused and produced top notch work. Pleasure to work with and heartily recommended.
Alex beadle – headcaster
I worked with Matt at Headcastlab and throughout the project he produced excellent content of the highest standard. Matt has been extremely hard working and always very helpful whenever I’ve worked with him. He was an essential part of our team and his ability to handle both the technical and the creative sides of marketing (whilst remaining calm and focussed) was second to none! It was pleasure to work with Matt and I would definitely recommend him.
Branding, Design & Copy – a couple of examples
Elephant is a B to G company selling survey systems and hardware to NHS groups. Their branding and content desperately needed an overhaul. Most importantly, the copy and tone used on sites and offline literature needed to be clear and reflecting NHS future objectives. Within 6 months they had been approached by a 3rd party vendor to produce and distribute systems to the NHS, a project worth £2.5m.
Usfor is an established print firm. Dave, the owner wanted to increase web sales and attract new audiences. The old site was tired and corporate. It ran on an atypical bespoke web-to-print CMS. I built the new site using the existing framework with user-friendliness in mind. Bright colours, a relaxed tone, and clearer pricing helped drive online sales over the coming months, and the site provided an easy reference point for customer enquiries.
