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 people and companies struggling with it.  This is unfortunate (even unfair) but alas 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 using it every day to the detriment of their business and their interests.  If they knew the potential damage they wouldn't do it, and would instead look for help.

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 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, like an accountant and lawyer, 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.  I have undertaken many assignments on a whole variety of projects.  From working on private individuals’ thesis to important marketing campaigns, acquisitions, appointment and dismissal of agents and staff, to correcting emails, letters, blogs, websites, to explaining what difficult received text and messaging might mean.  I am happy to work on anything but will always be honest should a piece of work be too complex, legal, or technical.  I work exclusively on my own and do not share nor consult with anyone else ensuring maximum confidentiality, nor do I include myself in any policy or decision-making processes, so always maintaining the utmost professionalism and discretion.


Editorial team


I have available a small team of editors from all around the world should a client require an immediate response out of UK working hours, or should there be a high demand for my services.  All my editors are well trusted, native English speaking, highly confidential, professionals who have decades of experience in business.  They all understand and support my policy on confidentiality, and have signed a strict NDA (non-disclosure agreement) with Kenney Consultancy Ltd.  They will, as I do, work exclusively on their own, and should they require any advice or support, they will only contact me, or the client, for it.  I will always seek a client's permission before allocating an editor.
