For professionals who want their words to make a difference. We’ll help you break old writing habits so that you can share information more effectively and make the world a little fairer.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably heard about the benefits of Plain English: that it’s great for your readers, making information easy to read, understand and act upon; and that it’s great for you and your organisation, saving you time, money and reputation.

But if you’re like most people, you’re not sure how to go about it.

  • You (or your team) don’t have time to learn a new way of writing.
  • You think that what you have to say might be too complex.
  • You worry that you’ll come across as simplistic or patronising.

What you need is a helping hand.

So, take ours. With more than 35 years of writing experience under our belt, we understand how Plain English (and ‘plain language’) works and how to help people who don’t.

We’ve been helping organisations with their writing since we started out in 2012 as Reporting for Business Ltd (some of whom you can see below).

Under our trading name PhEW we offer the same services and more, but with an emphasis on Plain English.
