Effective internal communications are vital to keep employees fully engaged in the growth and success of any business or organisation.
I work for private and public sector organisations who want to outsource the task of writing engaging and interesting content for staff newsletters and company intranets.
Recognising and celebrating achievements internally is an important boost for morale and also a way of sharing good practice with the rest of the organisation. I can help businesses to uncover the good news stories that they can share internally and externally.
At times of change and challenge, I also work with businesses to help them find the right words for letters and emails to employees when important information needs to be conveyed.
In the area of external communications, I have years of experience of writing for a wide variety of online and print publications including regional and national newspapers, niche journals and the trade press.
When senior managers and directors have the opportunity to write an article or an opinion piece for an external publication - but lack the time to write it themselves - they brief me and I can write the piece on their behalf. In the same way I 'ghost write' blog posts for business owners.
If you are short of inspiration for company blog posts or news articles I can write them for you - or provide mentoring and coaching to help you find your 'voice' again.
I also write and edit news articles and press releases that convey your message in a style that is appropriate for your target audience. I have close links with a number of trusted PR agencies that I can recommend if you need marketing and PR services including press release distribution.
Entering awards can be a very effective way of raising your profile and publicising successful projects and achievements, but many companies lack the time and resource to research, write and edit award entries. I can interview staff members and stakeholders to put together award entries that can result in excellent publicity for your company if you are shortlisted or secure a winner or runners-up position.
"I find Elaine extremely easy to work with and would have no hesitation in recommending her in any role where all-round intelligence and integrity are key requirements. She is very well organised, reliable and professional yet flexible and friendly."

I would like to thank Elaine and highly recommend her for being very generous with her time and coming back to me so quickly with a great list of suggested improvements.
