Meet the team

Richard Spencer

Richard sharpened his thinking and writing as a copywriter at some of the world’s top ad agencies (and some lesser ones).


Richard leads our workshops and makes most of the tea.

A big cricket fan, Paul started creating copy at Saatchi’s and ended up writing scripts for the BBC. 


Throw in the odd book and blog and you have a seasoned all rounder.

Greg Henley

As an ex-theatre student, Greg knows that drama is just life with the dull bits cut out. He takes the same approach to writing copy, chopping out any word that screams ‘boring’.

As a former fundraiser, Chris knows the words that separate customers from their cash.


Having studied music at Oxford he also has an ear for rhythm and flow.

Chris Silberston

Joanna is a running fanatic. And we struggle to keep her still. She’s constantly chasing chances to make copy compelling and racing around to meet potential clients.

Joanna Crutcher
Client relations manager

With a degree in psychology, Hayley knows which phrases push people's buttons. Her persuasive skills have come in handy for clients as varied as universities and beer.

Hayley Cherrett
Katherine Lewis

As a seasoned scuba diver, it’s hard to keep Katherine away from the
water. When she’s on dry land, she submerges herself in blog posts,
course descriptions, social campaigns and more.

Eagle-eyed Ally is a Professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP). Fancy, right? It basically means you can trust her to spot silly mistakes and raise anything that doesn’t read quite right.

Ally Oakes
Project manager

Detail demon by day, illustrator and comics creator by night. It’s Rozi’s challenge to keep our team of writers organised so we deliver work on time and on budget.
