If so, I can help you to solve problems by communicating more effectively and motivating people to take actions.
Communication is, apparently, the root of all evil. It is almost always cited in staff surveys and individual conversations as needing improvement. But there are always things you can do to make it better.
As I often say to clients, you have enough to do without simply adding ‘communicate’ as another item on your to-do list. So if you’re going to do it, you might as well be as effective as possible. With fewer misunderstandings, you can ensure your organisation is focussing on the amazing things you do to make the world a kinder place.
I can support you to do just that.
And if your issues aren’t strictly comms-related, I can help you figure out what the real problem is too.
Who do I work with?
My clients are busy people, with lots to do and lots to achieve. Their organisations are working with groups and communities locally, nationally and globally, finding ways to empower, support and make change.
They recognise that communication at their organisation needs improving – often because other people have told them so – but:

How can I help?
There are four key areas where the communication aspects of my work makes a difference. I have summed them up in my services summary and here’s a sneak preview:
Research. Organisations with better internal understanding make better decisions and take stronger actions. I can carry out research to find out what your people and other audiences are thinking, feeling and saying. Since I am independent and impartial, people are happy to tell me what’s really going on. You can communicate better and do more together when you see and understand different perspectives.
Strategy and planning. Planned communications provide actions to support your business plan and achieve your aims. I can work with you to pull together a robust communication strategy and plan, to cover your whole organisation or a specific project. I can also provide ongoing coaching and mentoring to help your team deliver the plan. That way you don’t end up with a shiny new document that sits in a drawer gathering dust.
Training. When everyone in an organisation is able to communicate effectively, you become much stronger and are able to achieve more together. I run group training workshops, as well as offering one to one coaching and support.
Writing. Compelling copy supports the achievement of your organisational aims. I can write many different things for you, from web copy to business plans, from annual reports to news stories, from case-studies to grant applications.
