Haydn Grey
Copywriting for growing businesses

Looking for a copywriter?

I write for lots of brilliant businesses.
Can I write for yours?

Whether your project’s fully formed, with a signed off brief that’s ready to send.
Or you’re in the planning stages, scratching your head and wondering where to start.
I can help.

I work with businesses of all shapes and sizes.
Across every sector.
Around the world.
Injecting creativity
And audience understanding.

From confidential long-term projects for multinational brands –
To confidence-building copywriting training sessions for whole teams and departments.

I specialise in developing brand tone of voice, in writing engaging web copy, in scriptwriting for corporate videos and animations. And in training teams to communicate with clarity – and a smile.

Give me the website you don’t have time to write.
The white paper you need to deliver.
The tone of voice you need to develop.
The corporate video you have to script.

Let’s clear that to-do-list
Deliver that final draft
And set your words to work.

Case Study
Knowledge Transfer Network

“Katherine was incredibly flexible and independent – brief her and she’s off, no overbearing management or oversight needed. That’s invaluable when you’re outsourcing work. I was confident in her ability to be proactive, her confidence to walk into a room full of strangers and interview them and her creative ability to produce a useable and useful report. Following that work, I was able to recommend her to colleagues without hesitation.”

Jenny Volkers, Communications Manager | KTN

The brief: Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is Innovate UK’s network partner.KTN helps businesses get the best out of creativity, ideas and the latest discoveries, to strengthen the UK economy and improve people’s lives. The first of two projects for KTN involved event reporting at a key Innovate UK funding announcement in Central London. The second project was to write a brochure titled Prospering from the Energy Revolution, part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.

Working with: The KTN Team

The project:KTN provides innovation networking for businesses, in line with its mission to drive growth in the UK. Support was needed to gain feedback from people attending the launch of a round of funding in Central London. My job was to identify those visitors who had come to attend the launch event and gain their thoughts and feedback on the overall success of the event – including how clear it was to apply for the funding on offer. Following the event, I wrote a brochure for UK Research and Innovation, which explored how businesses are unlocking the potential of intelligent local energy systems across the UK.
