About Me

Derryck Strachan - Freelance Copywriter

For over 20 years, I’ve worked in marketing and communications roles, helping hundreds of companies achieve better results.




This has included stints in the music industry (Warners, Virgin, Polydor) and food sector (Time Out, AA Restaurant Guides, River Cottage, Ashburton Cookery School), as well as projects for Heineken and Time Life.

Since 2005 I’ve been the managing director of Big Star Copywriting, a content marketing agency based in Totnes that works with international brands including Thomas Cook, Qatar Airways, Ecco Shoes, Armani and NCP.

I work as a marketing consultant with a limited number of businesses every year, with creative and strategic advice as well as ongoing support with coaching and management of marketing activity.
