Chris Reeves – Copywriter
Chris is a freelance copywriter and PR manager and has a long background in sales and marketing and has worked for SMEs, multinational corporates and agencies both as an employee and as a freelance consultant.
In 2003, Chris left a specialist, building-industry orientated, full-service marketing agency to work as a freelance copywriter and PR manager. It’s a job and a lifestyle he loves: “I enjoy writing, expressing ideas using the written word. It’s a skill and an art that needs constant practise and attention to detail. For many people, writing something important is usually frustrating, time-consuming and, believe it or not, quite stressful. So getting a professional copywriter to do it saves them hassle and frees up their time to concentrate on those things that only they can do. Working on a freelance basis really suits me, I enjoy the variety of work, the challenges that it brings and the freedom of being self-employed.”
In his spare time Chris has a passion for vintage aviation, enthusiastically embracing anything with a propeller and everything that goes with it; is a keen target shooter and chairman of a local shooting club; enjoys cycling and walking; is a member of the RSPB and Butterfly Conservation and grows a range of chilli peppers most years.
