What's Cooking in the Mind of a Creative?
Updated: Apr 16
There's something about being a polyglot with six languages in a constantly evolving world that attracts the will to move along with the trends and yet have the ability to come up with ingenious, bespoke proposals that make businesses from all walks of life stand out.
Being a creative is no easy thing. Despite what many think, it's a full-time job, but what a job it is indeed. It makes the brain tick just that little bit faster than most people's and maybe that explains the bouts of insomnia...
So I thought it might be fun to share a little about me and how I can help YOU as all I ever do is listen to all about you for my YouTube show "Luxury with Natalia," so what do you say, let's see what this brain of mine can concoct up for what you might not know (yet) that you are looking for.
On an island that has produced some of the best writers in the world. I am addicted to writing and understand copy like nobody else. I love helping clients write inspiring copy that will convert your clients on your landing pages and campaigns. Ever wondered how to make your audience stick around and keep reading? Well that's the trick that I look after and they say, am good at.
In cool Scandi vibes, renowned for its creativity and uniquity. Then further south in the Mediterranean yachting capital amidst the most influential decision-makers and movers and shakers. If Monaco or the South of France is on your radar for product placement, PR or exposure at the yacht shows like Monaco Yacht Show and/or key events like Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix, then let me and my mastermind business, Bright Creativity show you the way. Further afield also applies in key spots worldwide. Just saying...
A life-long journey spent living and gaining wealth of marketing, events, PR and copywriting experience abroad in the likes of buzzing hot spots to include London, Edinburgh, Auckland, Stockholm, Heidelberg, Warsaw, Dublin, Nice and Monaco.
As a now Blogger and Editor in Large to several international luxury and lifestyle publications/blogs to include Boat International, Only Magazine, Class of Its Own, SuperYacht Times, Paddock Magazine and Eat, Love, Savor to name but a few, you can count on creative storytelling and coverage no matter what the collateral, article or press release.
Have I ever been under a boss or always my own boss?
Yes I was an employee and worked for two of the world's biggest brokerages, Fraser Yachts and Camper & Nicholsons. Also dipped my toe into aviation with Hawker Beechcraft, today Textron Aviation as well as a boutique business brokerage in Monaco reselling aircraft. My first ever job was in transport - working for a worldwide courier franchise as the third wheel with the CEO/Founder and Sales & Marketing VP.
They flew me off to Auckland, New Zealand aged 20-something to teach franchisees marketing out on route tours with the drivers, the regional franchisees and master franchisees. Now that was hands-on experience and where I learnt the gift of the (marketing) gab and how to sell the (nearly) impossible!
Bundles of valuable experiences. An array of high profile contacts in international companies from a variety of different industries, perfect for business development, PR and strategic partnership needs. Years of professional dedication. A natural entrepreneurial flair. Wealth of integrity and heaps of imagination as well as a positive can-do attitude.
Coolest project to date:
Can't choose between the golf at sea on a 70m superyacht with inflatable targets at sea and biodegradable golf balls or the very first pétanque competition on a yacht EVER, on cashmere carpet. Beat that for originality!
In love with:
Event and photo shoot organising. Project manager for several pioneering events such as The Explorer Yachts Summit in 2019, Le Rosey Private Summer Camps Introductory Event, both at the Yacht Club de Monaco, or doing a splash of PR for The Superyacht Experience in Palm Beach and The Superyacht Show in Barcelona. Photoshoot productions involving yachts, unique venues and the best hand-picked partners.
Networking, interviewing people, meeting people and staying connected as you never know when A could be handy for B and C and... until Z.
Something you didn't know:
I am writing a book on my 88-year old typewriter called Oliver and who has his very own Instagram account @tales_from_oliver.
