approach

Define

What sets a company's asset(s), or platform apart. What is the plot around which everything else revolves.

Shape

Once the plot is defined, a storyline takes shape, with a beginning, middle and an end.

Express

Express the story in a compelling way that does full justice to the company, the technology, the products.

 
Evangelize

With everything in place, spread the word, raise awareness, raise appetite, raise capital.

Collaborate

Where required, I work with colleagues in key European markets and the U.S. People I respect, admire and trust.

about

I have been working in healthcare communications for some 25 years. I founded Capricorn One in 2007 to assist private and public healthcare companies in fleshing out, articulating, and communicating their story to build their reputation, raise their profile, and raise capital.

Relying on a broad and deep international network in the media and investor communities, I have managed the communication aspects of many corporate transactions, pipeline triumphs and tribulations, strategy shifts, crises, restructurings, and management changes for clients in Europe, the U.S. and Canada.

I live in a mountain hut in Switzerland with two dogs, am a fan of PJ Harvey and Dante, and am an avid open-water swimmer.
