Welcome to thenest
Hi, I’m Kim and I’m on a mission to change the world through words. Because, let’s face it, people underestimate the power of words.
Technology is great but it means words are no longer just what we read, write or hear – they have become finely tuned tools to help us interact and make sense of the world around us. We’re bombarded with them every day, from news and social media to advertising and radio and even through general conversation.
So how do we come to understand words to help us communicate a message? Well, that’s where my team comes in. We can make your words and branding count so the right people notice.
Whether your aim is to persuade, inform or educate, there’s an art to integrating words and there’s a challenge in capturing an audience at first glance. This can be done through cohesive blogs and websites, marketing and social media, public relations and email marketing, video and digital outreach or old school copywriting in the form of newsletters and brochures.
Whether you’re after a long-term business relationship or simply need help with a single project, we’re always up for a chat and a coffee – on us!

"It's such a pleasure and privilege to have been a work colleague of Kim's for many years, in our days at The West Australian and also today in our own businesses. It's amazing to see someone with journalistic and advertorial copy writing flair married nicely with a broad understanding of online publishing. Personally Kim is a sweetheart. Professionally she is dynamic and her approach to clients is a skill-set not many journalists could embody let alone master."
