Micro Oiseau: founded by award-winning marketing writer Jacky Fitt FRSA.

Jacky Fitt - About Us - Micro Oiseau - marketing help

Jacky has been a copywriter, editor and author for many years, helping businesses and organisations of all sizes promote what they do. From NGOs and national broadcasters to charities, scientists and shop keepers, care teams, carpenters and micro entrepreneurs…

For me, good business is about collaboration to increase the chances of success, generosity to create loyalty and knowledge to improve resilience.

“By sharing our expertise, we not only help others, we also help ourselves.

“The resilience and innovation of small business owners around the world has always inspired me and I love to see them thrive. I want to help ensure that anyone can feel confident to start out on their own with good marketing advice. In our global markets good communication is fundamental and translators are often the unsung heroes of successful ventures, I’d also love to change that.

“Through Micro Oiseau my aim is to offer a free and easy-to-use high quality business resource and a superb showcase for professional translators. A hub for mutual support; just like the little sociable weaver birds, through collaboration, together, we too, can thrive.”
