Doug Crossley

Senior Copywriter / Scriptwriter / Speechwriter

Personal Service Company

What do you call a man with a spade on his head? Doug: A man who had to develop a good sense of humour because people really love to tell him that joke.

I’m a senior conceptual creative, with a penchant for comedy, and I specialise in scriptwriting. I also now serve a boutique set of clients as their trusted speechwriter and brand storyteller. I’ve got a sharp eye for digital and social and I love a quirky brief.

I balance a portfolio of freelance copy & content writing projects with writing original scripts for theatre and TV, including winning the BAFTA Rocliffe Forum List for my TV comedy FAIRIES. I also write and deliver training on scriptwriting, storytelling and creativity, in a range of professional contexts. For more information please scroll down.

I'm also a highly skilled improv comedian and I play the piano.
