Steve Shaw of Bishopsgate Copywriting

When you hire a new copywriter or content writer it’s good to know a bit about the person you’ll be working with, so here’s some info about me.

I worked in the banking industry for a number of years, mainly with the HSBC Group in London, Hong Kong, Brussels and Dubai. Won’t bore you with the details (they’re all on LinkedIn) but I did lots of different roles at HSBC as one of their “International Managers.”

The jobs I most enjoyed, because I love to write, were those in marketing and corporate communications. When I left the banking industry, I decided to open my own copywriting business. It seemed the natural thing to do. Bishopsgate Copywriting opened in 2010.

Since then, I’ve had a couple of career diversions along the way. I was the Editor at a financial magazine for a while and then had a consultancy role for the Philadelphia-based Risk Management Association. But these days my copywriting business has my undivided attention.

Over the years, there aren’t too many types of writing assignment that I haven’t done. Hiring a writer like me with lots of real-world financial sector and business experience is really helpful for my clients (or so they tell me). They know that I’ll hit the ground running on their copywriting and content writing projects.

I’m also a skilled interviewer – my trusty little Olympus digital voice-recorder has seen a lot of action.

I’ve been very fortunate to have lived and worked in several different countries, including some uncomfortably hot and quite dangerous ones. I’ve had enough interesting life experiences to fill a book. Maybe I’ll get around to writing that book someday.

But enough about me. I’m sure the most important thing you’ll want to know is whether or not I’m a skilled copywriter.

I hope to have an opportunity to work with you.
