"Trust, collaboration and self-moderation"

These intriguing Ethos values attracted me to start a Value Exchange Discussion with founders Annabelle and Rob in lockdown 2020. From there I have developed my communications practice to adapt to their unique way of working and help the partnership connect their stories and values with the wider world. I am also supporting the incubation of Ethos Wilder, their key venture for a wilder world!

I like to work in a company where simple value statements are not just for show - they are baked into their way of working and living well. I feel passionate about helping Ethos communicate their vision of a kinder, safer work place for all, doing work of environmental and social value. I call it the Ethos wellbeing work platform. It's not perfect because it's human, but it works for me.

Working for numerous clients in both the public and private sphere has given me an insight into Ethos’s huge variety of potential collaborators and funders, whether they are government-funded, educational, charitable or commercially-led. My day to day contact with such a diverse range of people of different ages and backgrounds really ticks my boxes. As a seasoned remote worker, being an Ethos partner connects me with people who are not just ‘client contacts’ they are more like friends and family.

The qualifications stuff: I have a post-graduate certificate in Creative Marketing Communications from Bournemouth University and the Marketing Research Society’s Certificate in Marketing and Social Research.
