About Us



Maria Potter

WiseWords was founded by Maria Potter, an expert in strategic external communications and employee engagement

Maria’s experience working with owner-led businesses as well as many of the world’s largest brands (Sony, Coca Cola and GSK Consumer Healthcare) means she knows what it takes to put together compelling communications and PR strategies.

Outside of work Maria is an avid health and wellness devotee. Sport is her passion; from yoga, pilates, running, cycling, hiking to HITT training. Her current favourite is Forrest Yoga.  Away from sport Maria loves the mountains, particularly The Lake District, and dreams of having a beautiful cottage with mountain views one day.
