About me

Hi, I’m Natasha Spencer-Jolliffe, and I love words.

Listening to them, learning new ones, putting the perfect ones down on page to make that sentence just right, and whizzing them around again until they’re just so.

And of course, nattering words to chat, relate, put the world to rights, ask questions, and generally find out more about the world and us in it.

Testimonials

"Natasha is an exceptional journalist and displayed an incredible ability to story tell and build communities across multiple publications and social media platforms. Her role ranged from researching, brainstorming, interviewing, writing, proofreading, editing & creating and developing client relationships. Natasha has the unique ability to merge the necessity of existing media skills such as good writing, investigative skills, ethics, neutrality and verification with emerging new media skills such as utilising social media tools, content management systems and email marketing service providers."

Peter Patterson, Managing Director, Woodcote Media

"I've had the pleasure to discuss trends in sustainability and naturally sourced products with Natasha. I found her questions and insights to be both engaging and thought-provoking. Natasha was able to connect a deeply technical discussion to real-world impacts, finding the relevancy that all entrepreneurs dream of."

Damien Perriman Senior Vice President, Speciality Products at Genomatica

“An absolute delight to work with on stories and is always supportive of our research. I appreciate how she’s constantly on the lookout for interesting, informative content for readers”

Beatrice Lwee, PR and Communications Manager, Mintel

“A genuinely journalistic nose for a story means she's your go-to gal if you want your brand story picked-up, oxygenated and retold. Natasha has an enviable black book of media and digital contacts

Peter Antenen, Growth Hacker, Brand Architect & Capacity Builder at Antenen Consulting

“Natasha and I worked on an interview feature with the founder of Bulldog Skincare. As we are expanding in our availability in Asia it was a perfect time for her to grill us on our plans and views of the market. She has a sound knowledge of the illustrious South Korean skincare market and asked evocative questions. I'm looking forward to working with her more as we expand globally.”
