Derek Hammond - Mr Versatile
It’s just as well there’s no longer a space for ‘occupation’ on a passport, as author/ copywriter/ editor/ proofreader/ journalist would be a bit of a squeeze.
Derek has over 10 years’ experience in the City, working on high-profile investment pitches, and has produced copy for brands as diverse as DaimlerChrysler and the British Tourist Authority. Is that all? Good Lord, no: he’s also written for BBC Radio 4 and Radio 5 Live, and for publications as diverse as the NME, Time Out Guides and FourFourTwo. He’s been a subeditor at three national magazine publishers and was once an editor of the UK’s number 1 stickiest website.
If you need the right words juggling into the right order – or are looking for a freelance tambourinist – he’s your man.
