Angelique Jurd: Communication Coach & Writer
Fiction, non-fiction, poetry, songs, prayer, news. I began writing when I was a little girl – and for the longest time ever all I wanted was to be a journalist.
My journey took me to University where I discovered two things – I was quite a good writer and I hated writing about politics. In a fit of female contrariness I turned my back on writing and threw myself into my other love: languages. Yes, words still – that never changed.
I followed the path to Paris where I completed a Masters – and almost in brackets married The French Man and had a baby boy. When that baby was four we came back to New Zealand and in time gave him a brother and a sister.
As so often happens on a journey, a cross roads was encountered and The French Man and I followed different paths.
Soon after, a love of one of the great wordsmiths of all time, rock singer Bruce Springsteen (I’ve been a fan since I was 12), brought me to The Kiwi Man who now accompanies me on my journey .
The baby boy is now 20, his brother 14, and his baby sister 12. Together with The Kiwi Man we have settled by the sea on the south east coast of Auckland with three insane cats, a mountain of books and an obscene number of Springsteen music and momentos.
The journey continues and words are again designing the map. After working for several years as a newspaper editor, I now work as a freelance Communication Coach and writer. When it comes to marketing automation, I work with a very funky company called SalesSystems.
If you’re still curious you can find me in almost all the social media sites (link, like, follow, circle, pin, invest – whatever you do, I’ll return the gesture)and on About.me
Should our paths ever cross, be sure to say hi – and I’ll see you a little further on up the road.
