Policy projects and training

Do you need someone to do an urgent policy project quickly and well?

Someone to lead introduction of an institutional policy framework or policy suite?

I can visit you as needed for consultation activities, then do the writing back at my place.

I also offer training in best practice for policy developers and policy managers, based on the best practice model we’ve developed in the ATEM Institutional Policy Network.

Professional writing training and coaching

Clear writing is good service to our clients and other staff. It saves time and makes the organisation more efficient.

Good writing skills will help your career.

I customise my training workshops to the skill levels of participants.

I equip you to continue improving your writing skills independently.

I can support you on this path with individual coaching.

Workshops can be full day or half day, stand alone or with a follow-up coaching package.


I’m an accredited professional editor with substantial experience as a  journalist and proofreader.

I also have 25 years experience as a university manager, so I know the communication needs of large organisations.

I can help you write/improve texts that support organisational decision-making, such as briefing papers, business cases, proposals, reports and submissions.


Let’s make the best use of your and your team’s time – and have some fun while we do it.

I’ve organised and facilitated national and international workshops and symposiums on topics in tertiary education, as well as numerous whole-institution working parties and PD events.

I’ll work with you to plan and lead an interactive day.

Once the event’s under way, I’ll gather and synthesise the group’s insights as we go, to enrich the discussion and identify outcomes.

I can also help you write up the outcomes to make the most of them.
