Our Story

We love the Sussex Downs. Not much beats being amongst beautiful beech trees and looking down to the sea glistening in the distance.

We planted a pole on the url beechtobeach.com as soon as we decided to move here from London. We wanted a name that captured the unique attraction of the area for us.

The best of both worlds. Leaves to pebbles. Flint and chalk to sand.

The company has ambitions for facilitating and contributing to the creative community in Sussex. The development of truly local work sits alongside a passion for connecting with the global community. beechtobeach offers media services to companies in the UK and internationally. Watch our story.

Who we are

Jane Mote | Director

Extensive experience working for big organisations – BBC, BBC Worldwide, Discovery International, Turner Broadcasting, Deloittes, ESi Media (Evening Standard/Independent).

As well as medium to smaller outfits – UKTV, Whickers World Foundation, Africa Channel, Current TV, Eurotalk, Woodcut Media. She is a judge for Broadcast, RTS and BAFTA awards, a trustee of One World Media and co-founder of Uganda Arts and Media Academy (UAMA).

Jeremy Lindsey | Director

Has worked for local authorities and the voluntary sector for the last 30+ years in a wide variety of roles.

Jeremy is the IT brains in the business and has been production manager for UAMA training workshops in Kampala and Gulu. He also makes a mean Cinnamon bun.

Dominique Booth | Book Keeper

Dominique is our book-keeper and a loyal supporter. She keeps us organised and focused – not surprising for someone with an impressive international business background. With a BSc and an MBA From Babson University in the USA, she has worked for multinational companies in Europe and America. Before joining us in the UK she was responsible for accounting and financial reporting to the Board at Arundel Lido.  She’s delighted to be part of an environmentally conscious company that’s concerned with sustainability.

Sophie Lindsey | Design Consultant

Sophie is an Artist, Curator and Graphic Designer. She’s also design consultant for beechtobeach responsible for our website and other brand collateral.

She’s a graduate of the University of Brighton with a first-class honours in Fine Art. Her creative quests have led her to Newfoundland, New York and Northern Scotland but she is back in Sussex to be inspired once more by the Downs.

Joshua Kershaw Videographer

Josh’s experience is heavily rooted in music production and audio/visual mashups. The videos he’s created have generated a huge YouTube following and have led him into making commercial content with major brands such as Toyota, Pokemon, Showtime and LG. Some of his work has been aired on U.S television and cinema as part of integrated advertising campaigns.

This background gives him a good sense for editing and a strong eye for creativity which means he could even turn a stone into something interesting!

He has joined beechtobeach to help expand his experience in filming and to support local businesses in making the audio/visual content they need.

If he’s not making videos he’s either not very well or lost in the music studio.

Jamie Wood | Senior Design Consultant

Jamie is the ace in our pack when it comes to branding and design work. He created our beechtobeach branding and the look and feel for our newly launched sub-brand Specially Sussex. He is our ‘go-to’ person for all our major campaigns and artwork for ourselves and new clients.
Jamie has 25 years experience in technical illustration and graphic design and we are fortunate that he lives and works within a few 100 yards for our Arundel office.
He started life in the media industry and is exhibiting new digital art works at the Arundel Gallery trail for this first time this year.
