Ben Mercer

I’m a freelance writer and creator, working for mission driven entrepreneurs and businesses

My clients include a variety of individuals and businesses in the health, training and leisure industries.

We collaborate on brand positioning, whether that’s as a business, a thought leader or a tastemaker.

I’m looking to foster long term relationships with clients, creating written content that over time, gives them authority and a platform to spread their message and drive business growth.

I’ve also just begun a new part time role as Head of Content with Life After Professional Sport (LAPS) which unifies my interests in sport, career transition and tech. LAPS are typical for a client of mine as they have a clear mission and I look forward to helping them move forward.

I’ve written a book about my experiences of playing rugby in France for Stage Rouennais titled:

Fringes - Life on the Edge of Professional Rugby

The book is almost ready to go!

Learn more about it here or click the button below to sign up to receive a free sample of the first chapters and updates on the book as it’s released.

Writing the book has been a fantastic experience and has opened. a lot of doors already.

I’ll be writing some content around it, how to write and self-publish a book and am keen to help other people with their own creative ventures.

Give me a shout if you want to do something creative but don’t know where to start.

No worries if it’s not a book! I’m working with people in a variety of other disciplines at the moment and love the variety.

I have been involved in professional sport since leaving school, training full time with Bath Rugby before getting a degree in English Literature from Newcastle University. Since then my career has spanned Plymouth and Cornwall in the southwest of England with a year in Sydney, Australia before finishing up with four years in France with Stade Rouennais.
