Four thoughts on good writing
The first in a series reflecting on the
craft of good writing, in business
and elsewhere; it’s all about
Behaviour and social media
Why companies and organisations
need to think twice about
supporting the current social media
Corporate v personal values
What do we actually mean when
we speak of employee “alignment”?
It’s another question that just
doesn’t get asked.

New evidence about plant
sentience should give us pause to
think again about our place in the
words music insight
Language is behaviour. You can choose to
behave well (it’s a good idea), or not.
Good writing is not about control. Control
I can help you make words work for your
business, to frame the stories that
communicate or connect, and teach you to
make more of the words you use.
I write fiction, and music. I play jazz and folk-
influenced violin in several bands. This
creativity informs my commercial work, and
keeps me alert to the changing world.
I have a critical mind (there’s a lot of
conceptual sloppiness around too much
business practice). I’m interested in meaning,
in how we create it and how we find it in our
lives, at work and home. With these insights I
can help you cut through the fog to do only
useful things with words.
