Why you might need Kenney Consultancy


I help private individuals, executives, and businesses with their written English, having noticed, throughout the decades of my publishing career so many successful people and companies struggling with it.  This was unfortunate (even unfair) but unavoidable, as the global language of business is English, and most of it is written - email, letters, blogs, marketing, websites, apps etc.   

The problem for those whose first language is not English is while badly spoken English is acceptable, badly written English is not as it is almost impossible to understand even when using online translation sites (see Translation blog) yet thousands unknowingly risk it every day to the detriment of their business and their interests.

If messaging is compromised, unclear, difficult to understand, then so is doing business. There are usually only a few chances at impressing a client (especially when chasing new business) and many businesses and people may have no idea they are putting themselves at such a disadvantage.  Business (and most people) will always treat badly written communication as suspicious and not give it the attention the writer thinks it deserves.  It normally dismisses it, ignores it, and moves on.  Why would any company, executive, manager, risk this, especially in today's economic conditions?  

I offer consultancy helping my clients increase their international presence and reach by making sure their important marketing and day to day English communications are clear and concise, and exactly the message intended.  


If you are a business, executive, or a private individual, that struggles with writing English but need to use it, then please contact me as not only can I help you, I also maintain the utmost confidentiality (see Confidentiality blog) in everything I do, which is critical to my success and my business.

Thank you,
Nick Kenney

Here to help when confidentiality is crucial

I work exclusively on a private consultancy basis for individual clients and businesses who need help writing English (I do not teach) where confidentiality is crucial (see Confidentiality blog).  I have undertaken many assignments on a whole variety of content and range of projects.  From private assistance and personal correspondence to marketing campaigns, acquisitions to appointment and dismissal of agents and staff, correcting emails, letters, blogs, websites, to explaining what difficult received text and messaging might mean.  I work exclusively on my own without anyone else, ensuring maximum confidentiality, nor do I include myself in any policy or decision-making processes, so maintaining the utmost professionalism and discretion at all times .

Confidential consultancy

by supporting written communications, ensuring they are clear and concise, and exactly the message intended


For your employees

introducing English Language Support Ltd (a sister company)  that looks after those areas of business (sales, customer services, accounts etc) whose clarity of communication, while less confidential (and less expensive), are equally critical for the success of any business.



For reasons of confidentiality I do not disclose the name of individuals nor businesses who have kindly commented on my service (see below).  However, I did seek permission for one quote that could be used as a reference:

“We have known and worked with Nick Kenney for many years, and have found him professional, reliable, and trustworthy."
