Writer. Editor. Ideasmith.
I know a lot of people say they ‘have a passion’ for this or that, but when I say I have a passion for social innovation and sustainability, I really do mean it. To me, there could be no better job than helping and inspiring people and organisations to find better ways to live, work and play.
I have over six years of experience working in communications, investment, research, CSR and public policy. I’ve written for local and national publications, worked with creative design agencies and advised companies and governments on subjects ranging from social media to EU policy.
I’m the founder & editor of online magazine and ideas hub, The Ideas Arcade, am an RSA Fellow and have a 1st class degree in politics. I’m a volunteering enthusiast, and am currently involved with several fantastic organisations including Breast Cancer Care, Macmillan and the Bristol Pound.
Taking photographs, climbing rocks and growing my own food makes me smile. I have (at least) 15 different types of tea on the shelf in my kitchen, and can never decide if I love the mountains or the ocean more.
I also love Marmite (condolences to the haters).
“Francesca is a highly motivated, thorough and very efficient professional. As a member of the EIB team she was responsible for analysis of complex policy and project issues and for the formulation of coherent and detailed policy responses. Francesca was a joy to work with, very diligent and effective.”
“Francesca is bright, creative and extremely capable, most definitely someone to have working closely with you. She is a natural writer and communicator, articulating often complex information clearly and confidently to our executive clients.”
“I have been working with Francesca for over six months and I am yet to come across a copywriter that is more capable or as flexible as she is. In addition to her creative abilities, she also provides an invaluable strategic resource, particularly around corporate sustainability. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
“Cesca was brilliant to work with; full of ideas and enthusiasm, very bright and hard working. She did an amazing job on the launch project too; naming, researching, writing and presenting it. I’d have no hesitation at all in recommending her.”
