About Sue Weekes

I have been a journalist for almost 30 years and the past 14 of these have been spent working as a freelance. I specialise in the areas of recruitment, careers, leadership and management, learning and development and HR. As well as writing about the major issues impacting these areas, I’ve earned a reputation for being able to explain how technology impacts the workplace and world of business in a jargon-free way. I started out on a magazine dedicated to microwave cooking (my first news story was a scoop on the four-minute meringue!) and over the years have written for a number of sectors from caravanning and graphic arts to television and the internet. I’m co-founder of the Dorset-based editorial and copywriting company, Curly Pow Media Limited, which provides a range of services including ghost writing and marketing material. My current portfolio of work includes Edge, Inspire, the Institute of Leadership & Management, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Recruiter, Image Reports and Think Bigger. Aside from business-to-business publications and websites, I also write for Dorset Life and am always looking for stories of local interest.
