I’m a creative multimedia journalist.

Activism

I woke up to a world that had changed. When Brexit sent shock waves around the world, I had to ask what I had missed? What had erupted to shake up long-standing systems of international trade, governance, and social allegiance?
I soon discovered that Brexit was just the tip of the iceberg: we are living in a period of unprecedented change and I wanted to be an active participant in shaping the world rather than a passive spectator to history. But like many others, I didn’t quite know how.
 
That’s why I launched EnviroAct; events to bring people together to make their voice heard on environmental issues and make simple lifestyle changes that go far. Watch this space.

Testimonials

“Thank you for coming along. Your contribution was really appreciated, the feedback for the day was overwhelmingly enthusiastic, and I certainly came away buzzing with ideas and motivation!”

Melita Dennett

NUJ Event Organiser

I put together a speaker session for London Freelance Branch, National Union of Journalists, and Marianne agreed to make one of the ‘specialist’ contributions. She was everything I needed as a nervous organiser: punctual, friendly, co-operative, interactive with the other speakers and then clear and constructive when she delivered her talk. She readily answered audience questions too.
