A TRUSTED TEAM OF PR AND MARKETING PROFESSIONALS
Founded in 2008 as The Write Impression by print journalists who sensed change was in the air, TWI has spent the last decade building a reputation as a leading Communications and Digital Marketing Agency.
Our professional but friendly team of copywriters, PR professionals and digital marketing experts bring together expertise across all mediums while retaining the invaluable knowledge, creativity and contacts from our founders’ 30 years of experience in media and marketing.
Together, we can deliver creativity, innovation, quality, and those all-important results.
Kate has worked as a copywriter and marketeer for more than 30 years and founded TWI in 2008. Rarely known to finish a sentence, Kate’s head is full of creative ideas, exciting plans for the business and very, very bad jokes.
Outside work, when she’s not out ticking things off her bucket list, Kate can usually be found with her head in a book, eating cake, or at the gym (due to all the cake).
Loves: Travelling, reading, dog walks, football
Hates: People who never finish a
Janice joined TWI in 2014. In her role at the helm, she uses the experience she garnered during her twenty-one years working for the Home Office to help keep everyone organised!
Janice’s passion is writing, and besides the wonderful people she works with, the favourite part of her job is learning about new clients’ businesses and understanding their brand.
When she is not at work, you will find Janice traipsing across fields with her mad German Shepherd Dog, running around after her fabulous family, in the gym, snuggled up on the sofa losing herself in a book or movie, or at the theatre dreaming of becoming a Thespian.
Loves: Travelling, Dancing, Laughing, and ticking things off her Not Kicking the Bucket List
Hates: Arrogance and people who don’t realise that it is, indeed, all about Janice!
Nikki returned to our team three years ago as an Account Manager, having been the first ever employee of TWI in 2009. You would be hard pressed to meet a bigger perfectionist, but this is only driven by her enthusiasm to achieve the greatest results for our clients.
Much to the envy of her colleagues, she has the metabolism of a teenager! If she’s not tucking into her snack drawer at work (or winning the ‘bin of sin’ at the end of each week), you’ll find her spending time with her beautiful family with a compulsory pit-stop at one of Suffolk’s many wonderful independent cafés. Her excuse is she needs the energy to run around after her two-year-old son and labradoodle that is still mistaken for a puppy!
Loves: City breaks, summer, Lotus biscuits and lie-ins (now past tense!)
Hates: Seafood and mice
Head of Digital
Old before his time (his office nickname is Benjamin Button), Andrew fell into commercial copywriting nearly a decade ago when he met Kate at a local writer’s group.
Away from the office, Andrew loves football, cricket, cooking, reading and a few other things too.
Loves: Lego, TV, sunbathing, sports
Hates: Mushrooms, washing up
Ella joined the TWI team in 2019, having spent the previous four years at turf equipment manufacturer, Ransomes Jacobsen. She has worked on some exciting marketing and PR campaigns including promoting the company’s ‘supplier’ status at The 2018 Ryder Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympic golf event.
In her spare time, Ella plays football for a local women’s team and occasionally goes along to support her favourite team, Colchester United. She also plans to complete the Three Peaks Challenge in 2019, so is currently “enjoying” long walks in preparation for it!
Loves: Sport, Travel, Most food
Hates: Bananas, Coffee, Being hungry
Poppy joined TWI in summer 2019, on a year’s Internship from her BA degree in marketing at the University of Portsmouth.
After studying for two years at the Fashion Retail Academy, Poppy found a passion for all things PR and marketing and took the plunge to undertake another four years’ work to gain a BA in marketing.
Her career low so far was working at a fashion industry charity event which involved walking around with a giant button on her head. We are pretty sure we can beat that low in her time with us.
Outside work, you’ll find Poppy hanging out with friends and family, paddle boarding and shopping.
Loves: Travelling, food, sun worshipping
Hates: Peas (she doesn’t understand the point)
Super-organised projects manager by day, Vanessa Streete is an accomplished author, whose latest fictional tale of London’s underworld Like China has been a global success.
The combination of a woman who is both a lover of words and creative content and an obsessively organised Excel guru makes Ness a perfect fit for the TWI role.
Outside work, Ness is enjoying life in the Essex countryside with her husband, ten-year-old son and two rescue dogs.
Loves: Her family and their pooches, Zuki & Nell, shopping on E-bay (much to her husband’s annoyance), Prosecco and being massively inappropriate whenever possible.
Hates: People who take themselves too seriously – Life is too short.
Ellie has a confident blend of education and digital marketing experience and has had a passion for reading and writing from a very young age. She loves to travel and spent time in Fiji working for their national newspaper in the capital city of Suva, but is now back in the UK sitting comfortably within the TWI team.
When she’s not working hard on projects in the office, she can be found listening to something on Audible or with her nose is a good book. She is also trying to complete house renovations but confesses to preferring board game nights with friends or having a good Netflix binge with a glass of wine to plastering and decorating. She also confesses to being a little on the untidy side, but we don’t care, she’s simply super and has fit straight in to the Creative Team within the TWI family.
Loves: Dogs (especially Monty, her beloved scruffy white dog), sleepy seaside towns, audiobooks, podcasts and anyone who is willing to indulge her Harry Potter obsession (she’s a Gryffindor, obviously).
Hates: Gory horror films and awkward cringy reality TV programmes
