Get In Touch


Hi, I’m Brian McGee.

Need an article or newsletter written? Stuck for your next blog? Up against a deadline? Or perhaps you have plenty of happy clients – but you’ve not got round to gathering testimonials. I’m here to help by writing, editing, reporting. That means listening to my clients and working in partnership.

Enough of me. It’s a pleasure to meet you.

Let’s get started.

How I Can Help


We agree on a deadline that works for your new website content, next blog or social media posts on Twitter – to name but a few examples.

Whether it’s a deadline you’re up against or one we set together, I help you meet it.


Working with and for you means clarity about what we want to achieve together. (On time, to the point, on budget.)

Stylish, considered and accurate writing is at the heart of what I deliver. Your standards are high. Mine too.


As a commissioning editor, business owner or marketing/PR/communications professional, it’s unlikely you want an off-the-peg product.

Take your ideas and expertise, add my skills and experience; together we’ll create a tailored solution to the challenge you’re grappling with.

I am Proud to Have Worked With...

Bloomberg Bunsiness
Thomson Reuters

  • “Thank you for your creative and efficient input. You highlighted many areas of observation that I would have overlooked. I guess a better perspective can be had from the outside looking in as I tend to get lost in subjective fog!”

    Erica Steenkamp, Owner & Director, Blue Belle Café
  • “It was great to work with Brian on a business proposal which needed a very fast turnaround. He was clear, quick and trustworthy. We will be working with him again and again.”

    Jackie McGee (no relation to Brian!), Director, JAMomentum
  • “Brian really listens to you to find out what you want to achieve, is super patient and has an eagle eye for detail.”

    Sarah Gilfillan, Personal Stylist, Shopper and Wardrobe Consultant for Men, Sartoria Lab
  • “I love working with Brian. He is full of clever, witty words that make anything from a single tweet to a full-length blog engaging, focused and fun to read.”

    John Pawson, Business Technology Consultant, No Nonsense Tech
  • “A true professional, Brian stepped in at short notice to help me out when my diary was overflowing and has since covered a number of marketing and market research conferences for me.

    He quickly grasped the nature of the content and the house style and writes – to deadline – articles of the length required which need little editing.”

    Brian Carruthers, News Editor,
  • “I feel far more confident now, thanks to your patient and relaxed attitude. The [digital-skills] sessions were very structured and moved along to your plan.

    Setting goals each week really helped me get more out of Twitter, which I now use regularly. I am also setting up online donation pages to help my charities and even updating a website, something out of my range before.

    Thank you so much.”

    Kathy Bance MBE, local councillor & community volunteer
  • I turned to Brian McGee at the recommendation of others when I needed a writer and editor to create a newsletter focused on the new threat of Coronavirus. Working with Brian, we stood the product up in less than a week, grew an audience of thousands, and got good open and click rates that benefitted our organization and helped it stand out in the marketplace of ideas. We then relaunched the product, again with Brian’s help. I am delighted that Brian was so flexible, smart, quick, and thoughtful. Without his work, we would not have been able to launch so quickly or achieve such great results.

    Andrew R Marshall, Vice President of Communications, Atlantic Council
  • “Brian is a valued contributor to our international trade titles and is extremely professional and adaptable. He has helped us forge new industry contacts globally. Brian is always helpful with tight deadlines and he is very organised.”

    Clodagh Norton, Editor in Chief, 2020EUROPE
  • “Excellent trainer on all things to do with social media. I’ve received more likes on my Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook pages since going on his courses.”

    Rebecca Busfield, Partner, Watt Busfield Tax Investigations
  • “Brian’s attention to detail is second to none. His planning for sessions given to our students on how to use social media for career planning was meticulous and the content excellent, just what I asked for.”

    Jennifer Harris, Head of Careers, Royal Russell School
