ABOUT

Hi, I’m Hannah. I started life in flowers as a teenage Saturday girl in a florist shop. Now, with 13 years’ experience from small business marketing to Europewide communications, project management and strategy, I provide freelance support to a range of companies at different parts of the global supply chain. My aim is to continue working for those valued, varied clients while doing more to support positive, ethical and sustainable ideas in the industry. 

As a web-editor for many years and as previous editor of trade magazine Florist Business, my research and writing experience stretches across all areas of the industry - and I’m so pleased that the magazine received positive feedback from hundreds of florists. Thanks to years of interviews and events, I’m honoured to know a wide network of incredible florists, suppliers, growers, breeders and many others along the chain. I’m a geek for flower trends, floral business insights and creative marketing.

Based in London, I’m a native English speaker, passionate about working with people across the worldwide flower sector and the meaningful impact this industry has on people in all corners of the globe. You can always find me visiting Europe's staple flower shows in the Netherlands in November and in Germany in January. See you there!
