Mary Appleton Editorial

I am an award-winning writer, editor and communications content strategist, specialising in HR, talent, business and the world of work.

I'm all about creating intelligent communications, injecting life into business writing, and building engaged communities through brilliant content.

I help people - and organisations - find the words, ideas and mechanisms they need to inform, inspire, engage and move audiences. 

Write. Delight. Engage. Change.
