“Attention spans have shortened and a large percentage of so called 'content' hasn't been emotionally engaging, trusted, nor is it real, especially on social media.  A perception of cash for comment has eroded audience trust, as well as impacted advertising effectiveness. Everyone has jumped on the 'content' band wagon to the point where the word 'content' itself is overused and tired. We are overwhelmed and drowning in poor content.  Our time is being wasted and we just don't have the time to waste.”

Storytelling is a difficult art, but what’s even more difficult is doing it while also delivering on business outcomes. Having been in the business of creating stories for audiences for over 20 years there’s a hell of a lot I know about creating a beautiful, engaging story.”

Deborah works with Studio Snoop as Consulting Content Director for The Together Project - a global e-commerce platform and marketplace with purpose dedicated to making change by providing opportunity to skilled artisans around the world. The platform is launching late 2020.

Client Testimonial

"I have known Deb professionally for years and when I began working on The Together Project  I contacted Deb straight away. I was not disappointed and she quickly showed why she is so respected in the industry. Creating a social enterprise from scratch I wanted to step away from the cliches we have all known and bring an updated version of what that could be. She brilliantly put together a content strategy for online and social. It really has set the pace for where we are wanting to go and Deb’s energy is contagious. She brings you on the journey and makes the whole working experience so enjoyable. I couldn’t have got this far without her."
