A month or so ago I was fortunate enough to attend a creative business writers course at Merton College Oxford. The company behind the course is called Dark Angels a UK based organisation dedicated to improving business writing.

Too many corporations struggle to communicate in human terms, and I’ve always felt it’s part of my job to help them find a voice that is both their own and human As part of our Oxford session we also had the pleasure of an evening with Philip Pullman author of the well known Dark Materials Trilogy. Truly inspirational.

The BBC Radio 4 program In Business was also there to cover the course, and I was asked to contribute to the program. You can hear the episode and interview at the link below.

Listen to BBC Radio Interview


Peter Day, the presenter of In Business, described UP* There, Everywhere as the tiny global advertising agency. I rather like that!

Today UP* has 60 members and we are in 18 cities around the world. When will we reach 100?
