Communication plays a vital role in our everyday lives – from business meetings to discussions around the dinner table. It’s about more than words – it’s about how you use those words, and whether the other person has understood what you wanted to say.
At EwK services, I work with customers on a range of projects, whether they want to improve their communication skills, communicate in a different language, communicate inclusively and accessibly, or communicate spoken text in a written form. All of these things may seem unrelated, but I see them as connected, and different branches of the same effective communication tree!
Communicating clearly in writing
Would you like someone to check your website content, press releases, internal or external communications, and fix those pesky grammar errors that might have slipped through the net?
Do you have ideas about what you want to say, but wish you had support in shaping them into a clearly-written text?
Communicating German content in English
Do you want to reach a wider audience with your German content? I provide German to English translations of a wide range of texts.
Presenting Yourself or ideas
Applying for a job can be a stressful time, but it’s much easier if you’re well-prepared. I provide a job interview preparation service, in which we will run through a series of possible questions, discuss your answers, and practise your spontaneous responses to interview questions.
However, this service isn’t just about job interviews, as we don’t only give presentations when we’re applying for jobs. If you are preparing for a presentation at work and need help with your delivery, preparing to speak in public, or planning to answer questions that you may be asked, have a look at my presentation service.
Communicating effectively when English is not your first language
If you’re specifically interested in learning English, I also provide language training services for adults. All of my learning courses and materials are on EwK services’ sister site, English with Kirsty.
Listen to the podcast
My English with Kirsty podcast began as a tool for learners of English, but it’s developed into much more than that. It’s still relevant for language learners, but also for people who are interested in improving their communication skills, getting their message across effectively, and making the language they use work for them. You can find it wherever you usually get your podcasts, or listen on the podcast page of my English with Kirsty site.
If you have any questions or you would like to sign up for regular updates, you can send me an email or use the contact form.
Making your message accessible to people with a visual impairment
Do you know whether someone using a screenreader would be able to use your website? Do you know whether any of its features are making it impossible for such people to find information or carry out tasks on your site? Whether you want user testing or a consultation meeting about the accessibility of your website, app, or advertising materials, you’ll find more information on my accessibility page.
