Clement Communication Pty Ltd
I love taming unruly words and I've been lucky enough to make a living out of it for more than twenty years.
I work as a freelance writer, editor and consultant for large corporations (e.g. IBM, ANZ, Ernst & Young, Woolworths), medium-sized companies, government departments and agencies. I help them with all kinds of corporate communications, B2B and consumer marketing campaigns, employee communications, CEO ghostwriting and public information projects.,
My happy place is working on projects that other writers and editors find too complex, difficult or obtuse. Bring me your sustainability reporting suites, technical websites, public discussion papers, white papers, tenders and thought leadership articles - I love them!
That's not the end of it though. I like to get creative and I was born to wrangle words, so don't put me in the strictly corporate box. You can talk to me about all things print, digital and spoken, from campaign taglines and bus shelter advertising to speeches and radio scripts. If your project involves using the wonders of the English language to inform, persuade or engage people, I'm in.
My pre-freelance background gives me a unique perspective on writing and editing. Producing shows for BBC TV and ABC Radio honed my journalistic talents. Being an in-house marcomms and publications manager developed my strategic capabilities. Working at a boutique PR agency for clients such as Apple and Telstra developed my client management skills.
When I finally realised that writing and editing was my favourite part of PR and decided to focus on that, it was as though the rest of my career had been leading up to this point. Two decades later, I’m still drawing on my multi-faceted background while continuing to learn something new every day.
If you're impressed by qualifications, I have a BA (Hons) English and an MA in Palaeography (that’s the history of handwriting, not the study of dinosaur bones).
