Biographical Note
For almost 25 years, I’ve been helping global executives – and their communications/marketing teams – to edit or write stuff that falls in the ‘too hard’ basket. Typically, my clients are very smart and time poor. They are: thought leaders looking to change the narrative; CEOs seeking to inspire or reassure their employees, stakeholders and investors; or technical experts needing to engage with non-technical audiences.

Currently, they are based in New York, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Perth.
The documents I work with range from blogs, to annual reports, to regulatory proposals, to multi-million-dollar tenders, to all-employee emails, to Press Club speeches. They are always urgent or complex – and often both.

Sometimes my job is to rescue a document that’s been written by multiple authors and smooth it into a cohesive, single voice. Other times, I start with a blank screen. Whatever state your document is in – I can fix it.

What I bring to your writing project

• High-level experience in internal and external communications
• An ability to distil clear messages out of dry or complex information
• A view of your content from the reader’s perspective
• Experience interviewing CEOs, chief scientists and global experts
• Plain English and ruthless editing skills
• The speed and experience to produce quality documents to very tight deadlines
