Amy Douthett

I have 20+ years’ experience delivering communications projects of all shapes and sizes for non-profit, commercial and arts organisations.

What I do

From strategic reviews to annual reviews, I can help your organisation to communicate clearly and simply.

Communications strategy

Everybody needs a plan. The best communications start with a clear, coherent strategy — and come back to it, again and again.



I’m an experienced copywriter producing straightforward, compelling copy for websites, animations, apps and more.


I’ve managed full rebrands as well as light-touch updates on existing brands. The key? Knowing what you want to say with your new voice.

About Amy

I’m a senior communications professional with 20+ years’ experience delivering a range of assignments for non-profit, commercial and arts organisations. I’ve worked both in-house and freelance in New York and London. Highlights include: being a speechwriter at the New York City Fire Department after 9/11 and a bar critic for the New York Times. I’ve been based in London since 2010 and have enjoyed a rich and varied freelance career that has taken me to all sorts of exciting places, from the Edinburgh festival to Evidence Week in parliament. In my spare time, I’m a children’s writer represented by Alice Williams Literary. 

Recent work

Campaign outreach, animations, a festival, an internal communications review — I’ve worked on a diverse range of exciting projects in recent months.
