Tutor Description

Andrew Imrie graduated from Watford School of Art with a Diploma in Copywriting 35 years ago. During his career he has been a junior copywriter at Lowes, a group head at Euros, and a creative director at JWT. He has also had experience of running two of his own agencies.

In his own words “I’ve learnt how to have those conversations. Which words to use to entice, engage and sell. So let me help you be more confident about the words you use, the tone of voice you need to adopt, the conversations you can have and the communication you should write, so you can sell more successfully across all media and channels, both online and off.”
