Hi! I’m Laurence. I’m a freelance content writer and communications expert, but with a difference. Rather than ply my trade to anything that requires the written word, I specialise in telling stories about sustainability, the environment and responsible business.
My job, and my passion, is to help organisations who do good to tell their story in the best way possible. To shout about best practice from the rooftops and communicate your impact in a way that makes people sit up and take notice. That’s what gets me up in the morning.
My credentials? I have a professional and academic background in both written communication and the environment, so I know the ins-and-outs of the environmental world and the right the words to use when writing about it.
Before going freelance in 2017, I led on communications and marketing for an award-winning business support programme which has supported hundreds of small businesses to become more sustainable.
My work has taken me to all sorts of sectors, from business to politics, and I’ve worked on everything from online blogs and PR to policy research, thought leadership and book forewords. So if you have an ethical or environmental angle to your work, or are just trying to work out where to start with these topics, get in touch.
I uphold my principles in all my work and I’m a firm believer in practising what you preach, so I take my environmental impact seriously:
My electricity is 100% renewable and this website is hosted on a 100% renewably-powered platform.
I use public transport or active travel modes for all business travel.
My equipment is sourced sustainably and ethically wherever possible, such as refurbished tech and recycled paper.
I devote time each year to volunteering for good causes and offer a 12.5% discount rate to commercial work for charities.
