Helping you communicate
Are you counting your pennies, but your communications are suffering? I have ten years’ experience of fixed-term and freelance communications projects across private, public and the charity sectors.
Based in Surrey, under my limited company, TIP Etc, I offer a range of team-building, stakeholder management and communications services on either an ad-hoc or interim basis. This could be either tactical (I will do the work) or strategic (I will develop a communications strategy for you to follow). Or sometimes, a bit of both.
If you have recently gone, or are planning a period of transformation, I can advise and implement any change communications that may be helpful.
Our Clients Say
Sheryl Halliday, POWMAK studio
Francesca has been a great help designing and creating material for us. As a small company we did not have the knowledge or team for what was required. Francesca has always been available going above and beyond and made suggestions ensuring our finished product is the best it can be. We will most certainly continue to work with Francesca. Thank you for all your help.
Simon Kearney-Mitchell Head of Internal Communications, Medical Research Council
Francesca brought great energy and enthusiasm to her role at the MRC. She went beyond her formal role to assist with two particularly challenging projects, for which I am enormously grateful. As well as playing a key role in the development of the new intranet, she also took on the running of a major conference – both projects were a great success, in no small part thanks to her efforts. Francesca made a very strong contribution during her…
Keith (executive chair)Computer Aid International
Francesca was our director of marketing and communications for eight months providing cover for maternity leave. She very quickly made an impact in that role and we benefited greatly from her wide experience in marketing, communications and advocacy. Francesca is an ideas person with strong analytical and problem solving skills. She gets on well with people and was a good team player who brought challenging ideas into our management…
Francesca joined the team in the winter of 2011. With her help, support and guidance as communications officer we saw our turnover increase by 120% in 8 months. All I can say is – we’ll definitely be having her back next year.RalphY Not Festivals
Neal (head of communications) British Safety Council
I had the privilege to work with Francesca (for 9 months) during her editorship in 2012 of our monthly members’ magazine Safety Management. Francesca was a hardworking, incredibly expert member of my team – diligent, knowledgeable with quality and timeliness at the heart of her work. A good team leader – supportive, encouraging and clear in what she wanted done. I greatly valued her contribution.

TIP Etc have worked with us for the past four years and it has been a pleasure at every step of the way.

I would be happy to recommend their services in a heartbeat.

TIP etc relaunched the Climate Change TV brand and made it credible, accessible to new audiences and increased our online traffic from 50 visitors a day to 2,000. We were very pleased with their professionalism, creativity and the range of services they provided.
Julia (finance director) S&A Foods
I cannot thank Francesca/the TIP team enough for their commitment, energy and enthusiasm in delivering a step change to the internal communications at S&A Foods. Their approach is fresh, interesting and highly professional. They always deliver to impossible deadlines and are a real pleasure to work with.
