Paul Dicken

Content and Impact Lead at Stranger, Paul has turned his hand to copy creation and creative projects for a diverse mix of brands. He leads-out the team on our actions to make a positive social and environmental impact.

After deadline-hitting late nights in Cardiff’s student media scene, Paul first found himself in Cornwall circa 2006, honing his journalism skills. Following a stint in news and public policy reporting in London, he moved into brand content strategy, writing, editing and commissioning at Specialist UK for the likes of HSBC, NFU Mutual, JLL and Siemens.

As a writer and editor, he has worked on end-to-end magazine creation; written original articles and copy for advertising, emails, social media and websites – on topics from savings accounts to smart city infrastructure; and developed creative concepts for new products or campaigns.

Returning to Cornwall at the end of 2019, he brings this breadth of experience to Stranger projects, from crafting copy and scripting videos to formulating tone of voice and messaging approaches.

More than happy to sit down to read to the kids, or with a book of his own, he has worked on projects for new creative writing talent and will gladly eulogise about the power of writing, and reading, if asked.
