I founded Cadogan and Hall in 2011 after I returned to live in Adelaide after spending the previous twenty-five years living abroad, primarily in the UK and China.
Many people have asked me about the name of the business, and to be honest the story is rather a silly one. I hadn’t given any thought to what the company should be called when it came time to register for an ABN, nor had I really any ideas about what I would be doing, beyond knowing that it had something to do with writing.
In haste, I quickly chose the surnames of two of my oldest friends (part of the problem was that there was already a well-established firm in Adelaide with Angus in the name) and that was that. I do like the name very much, although ‘Cadogan’ does seem to give people in Australia a bit of trouble in terms of pronunciation (for the record, it is pronounced Ca-dug-an).
Since 2011, I have to admit that I have been very pleased at the way the business has grown, as well as the increasing range of services I am now able to offer. I have moved well beyond my original idea of being entirely copywriting focussed (although this is still a large part of what I do), and I am proud to say that I have developed a pretty broad range of skills and expertise.
So what do you get when you work with Cadogan and Hall?
First of all, I am confident that I bring a broad and varied range of online and digital marketing experience and expertise to my work with Adelaide businesses and organisations of all types, and even a casual glance at my portfolio demonstrates a fairly diverse array of services and skills.
Furthermore, I like to think that I offer a standard of copywriting expertise that will help your organisation to improve and diversify its communications. My aim is ways to write in a tone and style that works for the audience, the purpose and the media, which means you end up with precisely the sort of content that you need.
Finally, I write a lot, for a lot of people, and this means that I am a true professional — deadlines matter to me, meeting the specifications of the job matters to me, and ensuring that my clients get what they need matters to me.
Whether its website content, a blog post or SEO writing, or if you’re looking for editorial design, social media management or business writing, I am confident that I can provide the copywriting and marketing skills to showcase you in the manner your business deserves.
