Clarity from Complexity


Below are a few of my most popular services, but your project may not fit into these categories. Just drop me a line and let’s see if I can help out.

Annual Reports

Collating and curating the achievements of your year can be a total time sink. Working with people and content from across your organisation, I can gather, research, curate and write a coherent narrative that is SORP compliant.

Scientific Impact Reporting

Communicating the journey from discovery science to public benefit can be complex. I join the dots and shine a light on the difference your organisation made, evidencing your impact to anyone with a stake in what you do.

Organisational Strategy

When you’ve been deep in strategy development, it can be difficult to step back and see it with fresh perspective.
I can structure and articulate your strategic goals in ways that make sense and engage the audiences you want to reach.

Case Studies

Patients and service users are your organisation’s reason for being, and their stories are powerful. I interview individuals or work from transcripts to craft compelling personal narratives with authentic voice that will help you connect more, raise more, do more.

News Stories

Transforming a complex research advance into a news story can be a struggle. I work from research literature and speak to scientists to tease out what matters and why, then write shareable stories to the wordcount you need.

Project Leadership

If you have a comms project your in-house team simply can’t cover, let me take the reins. From a single piece of collateral to a suite of campaign resources, I can manage it – start to finish – in collaboration with other chosen suppliers, or bringing in my own trusted contacts.

Jane turned round several sections for the Diabetes UK annual impact report in really quick time. She worked with the Strategy team to produce clear and insightful copy that told the story of the Diabetes UK year with clarity and focus. She also interviewed the Chief Executive to write the foreword for the report. Jane was a joy to work with – always asking the right questions and delivering impactful and informative copy. I would happily work with her again.

Shirish Gandhi, Publications Manager
Jane is a superb writer. Mainly because she's an excellent listener and knows what questions to ask to really understand her brief before she puts pen to paper. But also because once she does start writing, she has a special knack for making the complex seem simple. I recently commissioned Jane for a very challenging science writing project and - after a gap of about 13 years since we worked alongside each other at the British Heart Foundation - I was reminded why I loved working with her. She's incredibly talented and reliable and always delivers the highest quality work on time, every time.

Ian Fannon, Managing Director
Jane is great at taking complex information, simplifying it and shaping it into something that’s engaging and easy to read. She makes sure she really understands your tone of voice, audience and subject matter. She also asks pertinent questions and suggest ways in which the content could be presented in more accessible and compelling ways. So in addition to making sure the copy is well-written, she also helps make sure the content is well-structured. As well as being an excellent writer, Jane is well-organised, turns her work around quickly and meets deadlines. It’s always a pleasure working with her.
