Janine John – Communications consultant

Hello, I’m a digital marketer and copywriter, with a wide-ranging background in communications.

I’m lucky enough to be based in Windermere, within the beautiful English Lake District in Cumbria. Brought up in the tourist industry, I became self-employed in 2006, and have provided research support and copywriting throughout that time on a variety of short and long-term projects.

Back in 2009 I designed and wrote the linking narrative for a keepsake historical book, and realised that I wanted to take my writing to a higher level professionally. I studied a distance learning master’s degree in Professional Communication, which consisted of a number of modules from Sheffield Hallam University’s specialist programme in technical communication (writing audience-centric materials such as user manuals). I passed my MA with distinction in April 2012, and for my dissertation produced an academic research project examining the communication of climate change.

Why talk to me about your communication needs? I love my work and bring commitment and enthusiasm to everything I do. I enjoy learning and regularly evaluate and work on updating my skills. In recent years, I have taken further short courses in photography and leadership, as well as the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Diploma in Digital Marketing. I am an affiliate member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).

I work with clients nationally and internationally, as well as locally in Cumbria and Lancashire. If you think I can help in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
