Hire me

I know about beer….

I’m also a qualified broadcast journalist with 15 years experience of working in the media – including newspapers, radio, TV, freelance writing, social media and 5+ years running a press office.

If it involves beer or communications – or both – I can help you.

Here’s an example of what I can do for you:

One-off writing jobs – blog posts, articles or press releases. You know what you want, you just need someone to write it. Priced per 100 words (+ hourly rate if lengthy research, interviewing etc required).

Consultancy. Beer sampling and feedback, communications advice, how to make the best of social media, how to make the best of photography and images, how to create and maintain a basic brewery or pub website, problem solving or brainstorming sessions to come up with new ideas – or anything else I can legitimately advise on! Contact me to outline your needs in the first instance. Hourly rates + expenses at cost.

Beer tasting notes. Your beers sampled by an Accredited Beer Sommelier and tasting notes written for your use in promotional material. Rates vary, contact me to discuss.

Food matching suggestions. Your beers sampled with a selection of foods to find delicious matches you can shout about be it on labels, promotional materials or for use at your own tastings and events. Hourly rates + expenses at cost.

Staff training and motivating. Everything from how to taste beer, understanding beer, communicating beer, coaching staff in beer confidence and showing them how to run a beer-themed event – on to how to create a basic website and write compelling content for it and how to write about beer on everything from labels and pumpclips through to your brewery blog. Bespoke/tailored training also available. Contact me to discuss. Rates depend on number of staff to be trained, duration of training and topic.

Something not listed above? Media training, event organising, trouble-shooting? Whatever it is give me a call and I’ll see if I can help.

For all the above contact me on 07946 112 025, or by email sophieatherton@btinternet.com for a no obligation chat about your beer and/or communications needs or to book my services.
