What People Say About Me
Duncan was our first team member at LeftCoast and was a tenacious and creative Marketing and Audience Development Manager. He is a very talented copywriter, excellent public relations manager and was committed at LeftCoast to developing genuinely new audiences for our programme of work.
Duncan delivers so much more than is expected, often helping out with complex productions of work beyond his remit of work. He has an extremely conscientious approach to everything he does reflected in the range of clients he works for and voluntary organisations he supports. Anyone who is lucky enough to work with Duncan will not regret it. I look forward to seeing his career flourish over the next few years
I’ve had the privilege to work with Duncan as a member of the altBlackpool team and it’s been a joy! His knowledge and attention to detail is a linchpin of the site and altB has gone from strength to strength. Duncan is a fervent supporter of all things Blackpool (although the football club is pushing it a bit!) and his enthusiasm is infectious.
Working with Duncan is such a pleasure, he has a special knack of seeing straight to the heart of an issue and finding realistic and practical ways to resolve them. Duncan is a well-respected member of the regional creative community and has a proven track record of delivering innovative projects that have a real impact of our communities. He is great at helping people identify ways of common working and as a result Duncan has been responsible for some really positive new partnerships. He is flexible, adaptive, empathetic and pragmatic in his approach and I would highly recommend him to any organisation who is thinking of working with him.
Duncan was engaged as a digital reporter from the first development meeting of the guild, and has been at every major meeting since. His observations of clarity and ability to quickly navigate through creative and busy activities and discussions to identify the essence are very special skills. He was then able to transfer this in to a blog and living document of our process and progress and this has been invaluable to us an emerging international organisation and network.
Thank you Duncan Hodgson for supporting us during some of our international trainings and being our digital reporter. You were a great help even in moments when we were too busy and you helped us out, above and beyond your role. You are a super professional who knows when to step in when needed and you always do some extra research and come up with ideas how to improve what we are doing. A pleasure to have you around.
Working with Duncan is a delight – he can create order from chaos, silk purses from sow’s ears and engaging copy from utter dribble! What’s more he hits deadlines too.
Duncan is an enthusiastic, competent and creative freelancer who takes great pride in his work – and that means his projects are always delivered to a very high standard. He’s a great communicator and is skilled in copywriting, journalism, marketing and audience development. I’d recommend Duncan to anyone who needs a fantastic communication guru!
