Clemmie Telford

In no particular order: Mum to two boys, a wife, a freelance Creative Strategist at Facebook and Instagram and a Blogger.

Clemmie Telford is a Mum to two boys, Bertie and Woody, she lives with them, her
husband and their sausage dog Derek, in Peckham South East London.

She is a Creative Director and has worked for over 10 years in top London advertising agencies, including most recently, Grey London. Where she worked on clients including The Sunday Times, M&S and Mcvities.

Early this year job as a freelance Creative Strategist at Facebook and Instagram. Helping brands do better, more effective and engaging work across the platforms.

Better still it enabled Clemmie to bring her ‘other life’ as a Mum Blogger into work. You'll find her as @clemmie_telford on instagram, her blog is
where she tries to give an honest account of being a 21st century woman. She has written about mental health, the experience of financial crisis, body image and of course being a Mum with a career.

Trying to balance all these things is not without it’s challenges, but Clemmie believes
that if you love what you do, laugh at the madness and are prepared to show a bit
vulnerability then ANYTHING is possible.

What I didn't realise back then was that if any of those senior folks had kids at home then they were probably wrangling a myriad of emotions.

How We Survived Financial Crisis. Just

2016 was a shitty year. The universal reasons hardly need mentioning: politics going tits up. The loss of so many amazing creatives. And of course Bake Off. But for my family and I we also went through a proper deep dark financial crisis.
