Service Description

My background and experience within global corporates coupled with my passion for & expertise in creative writing give me the ability to be a bridge between technical / business content & clearly written communication..

One of my favourite parts of the work I did previously was interpreting complex (or seemingly complex) information, often about products, and re-phrasing it verbally or in writing in way that made sense to the average customer with little or no product knowledge.

I can add value to your organisation / team by writing or re-writing books, articles,reports, web content and instruction or other manuals etc. that are typically detailed & contain some jargon, in a way that makes them more user-friendly, especially if aimed at the man in the street.
