What does "box clever" mean, anyway?
Boxing clever is a sporting term which has been in use for more than a century. A fighter who boxes clever is someone who matches their natural abilities and strengths with a disciplined long-term strategy and smart, adaptable tactics. They typically read their opponents well and can game out a fight over multiple rounds. A fighter who boxes clever is usually able to defeat an opponent who is bigger and stronger.
My communications advice can help you box clever so you can take on and overcome your challenges or competitors, no matter how big they are.
How can I help you?
With twenty years of experience, I can put together a communications strategy which will help you achieve your business or campaigning goals, combining creative ideas, revitalised websites, brilliant blogging, souped up social media, traditional PR and more
Ingenious video concepts that blew minds & won awards, record-breaking birthday cards, the world's first easy-read newspaper, diversity celebrated on postcards, social distance football - just some of the ideas that have made my clients or employers famous and happy
Coffee table books, websites, reports introduced by Hillary Clinton, blogs read by millions, social media posts that went viral, issues driven opinion pieces in international media, scripts for videos that changed social attitudes, speeches - I've written them all and more
For better or worse, I'm immersed in social media. Whether it's Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, or another new upstart, I can help create content to cut through all the social media hubbub so your brand and message are heard.
I've scripted videos costing $500,000 and personally driven the creation of videos costing $500. Both had brand-changing impact. I'm an expert in capturing complex subjects in simple, sharp, effective videos with over 25 million views in Cambodia alone.

The best work is born from collaboration. So if your project requires more skills or more hands on deck than I have, I'll assemble a crack team of fellow freelancers I've worked with before, including Khmer/English translators, film-makers, designers and editors.
But I also want to collaborate with you. Whether you want copywriting or content creation, a creative idea, or full marketing strategy, I'll take the time to get to know your brand and business inside out. We'll agree exactly what makes you special and design a strategy which makes sure the world finds out. In the last decade, my work won 13 international & 6 national awards, including:
