30-odd people on a mission to rescue the corporate world from the tyranny of linguistic mediocrity. We’ve been around since 1999, and have offices in London and New York.

Our team have escaped from all kinds of other disciplines – brand consultancy, journalism, advertising and even professional services – to focus on language, because it’s the thing we all care about most. Yet most writers have to hide in other jobs until they finally suss out what it is they’re really good at. So we also run workshops to show apprentices and graduates that writing’s not just a skill, it’s a career.

And, as you’d expect, we’re proudly polyglot. In our gang we have native speakers of English, Greek, Dutch, Afrikaans and Cantonese.
