Andy Maslen is a well-known copywriter and author. He has trained over 4,000 copywriters, and marketing teams at The Economist, BP, The London Stock Exchange, Emap, Weight Watchers (UK), the RSPB and PwC, among others.
He has written five books on copywriting, including Persuasive Copywriting and the best-selling Write to Sell.
In a 2016 poll of copywriters in the UK, he was named third most influential copywriter, beating Drayton Bird and David Ogilvy.
He is executive creative director of copywriting agency Sunfish, which works with organisations that want to get their message across in writing. And he speaks and writes widely on copywriting.
His first corporate copywriting job was writing direct mail campaigns for a reports publisher. His last was running the same company’s marketing department. He says he enjoyed the first job more than the last one.
