Summary
Professional writer and founder of Plain English Communications. I create communication pieces that turn complex concepts into messages that motivate. Without jargon. Without buzzwords.
Details
After many years of working as a corporate marketer within the financial and professional services industries, I’d had enough of the buzzy, jargon-heavy language that companies relied upon. It was circular, meaningless, and leaned on words like “opportunities” and “solutions” over and over again. It was throwaway language that led nowhere and accomplished nothing. That’s when I founded Plain English Communications.

Plain English Communications abandons the use of buzzwords and helps companies say what they mean. We help our clients promote their services, raise their corporate profile, and communicate with their employees through clear, concise messaging. We are different from our competitors because we believe that the direct approach is the best way to deliver a message. Our clients are different because they understand the need to state their message with precision. No jargon. No ambiguity. Plain English.

Plain English Communications has worked with companies in financial services, professional services, insurance, consulting and law, as well as nonprofit organizations.

If your communications department needs additional writing assistance – or if you have no communications department – contact Plain English Communications.

(We welcome inquiries from creative agencies in need of copywriting assistance.)
