About Clean Slate Copywriting
Hi, I’m Catherine Jones - B2B brand strategist, copywriter and writing coach.
I help people improve their skills and businesses with my two superpowers – simplifying the complex and facilitating discovery or learning.
I’ve been a freelance copywriter for almost 5 years, collaborating with fantastic agencies, strategists and SMEs for brand voice and copy projects – where I’ve become known for my ability to explain complex concepts and corporate jargon clearly.
Before that, I had a long career as an English teacher, led by my love of the English language and my drive to helping students improve, no matter what their abilities. My best ever teaching job was managing a centre for vulnerable Secondary-age students. Helping them overcome barriers and make progress was the most rewarding work I’ve ever done.
For me, copywriting is about solving the puzzle of how to express ideas in the most succinct, compelling and creative ways possible.
This applies whether I’m creating value propositions, taglines, website copy or thought leadership articles.
This approach applies whatever the sector. Most frequently with SaaS and tech companies, professional services and government. I enjoy working with anything corporate or complex that needs clear communication.
My recent work includes creating brand strategy and TOV guidelines for tech, SaaS, Higher Education, government and aviation companies, and writing thought leadership articles for a diverse range of clients.
I’ve also written website copy for both a Django development agency, and a new open-source code initiative. delivering training in creativity, thought leadership writing and tone of voice.
I bring my copywriting and teaching worlds together through the facilitation of engaging workshops and corporate copywriting training. Through this work, I help individuals and teams enhance their writing skills and draw out new ideas for their communication strategies.
I’m most proud of building my business myself. Aside from my transferable skills from English teaching, I’m a self-taught self-starter in business and marketing. All it took was a laptop and a love of writing and learning!
