Meet The Team
Michelle and Christian Ewen are seasoned storytellers whose interviewees range from music, film and TV stars to politicians and everyday heroes.
Michelle began writing true life stories for the national press aged 20. A decade later, she moved into PR – successfully enlisting Stephen Fry to back an award-winning NHS campaign challenging stigma.
Having helped hundreds of people to share their lived experience of mental health, Michelle then joined forces with her husband Christian (also a talented journalist, PR specialist and publisher) to create Write on Time Ltd. As both teachers and protectors, they gain valued recognition for their happy clients – building confidence and progressing their business journey.
From primetime Channel 4 shows to ITV’s ‘This Morning’, Michelle and Christian have placed their clients’ products and services on national TV and the radio, as well as in print and online media.
The duo’s ability to craft compelling stories makes them formidable award entry writers, who have a four in five success rate – achieving either a finalist placing or win.
Helen Pritchard is a woman on a mission to make £1m in 365 days, but back in 2008 she was heavily in debt and a single mum of two who struggled with anxiety. LinkedIn became a lifeline – allowing her to network for free from home and grow a digital marketing agency which she then ran for 10 years.
Having identified her true passion while teaching individuals and businesses how to find leads on LinkedIn, she made the leap to close her agency and fully focus on helping others.
Only two years later, she now makes a six-figure turnover offering a flagship group training programme known as ‘LinkedIn Mastermind’; an online ‘LinkedIn Bootcamp’ course (dubbed the ‘Netflix’ of LinkedIn training); and a £99 offering for anyone who wants to get known for their ‘thing’.
With a 40,000-strong community of devotees, Helen’s latest venture is to create a ‘What Would Helen Do?’ membership group for those action-takers who are ready to not only go from A to B, but to skip a few steps and go straight to H!
