Kendra Futcher, Freelance Brand WriterWhat we say and how we say it matters.Kendra works with a mix of brands, organisations, individuals and businesses helping them find the right words to capture who they are, what they do and why they do it. Kendra’s strategic focus and interest in the 'why, what and how' has helped her to build up valuable experience writing and running workshops around naming, tone of voice and brand positioning across an eclectic mix of clients and sectors.The language of climate change is of specialist interest to her, having worked on the brand creation for The Climate Group back in 2004. Since then, Kendra has continued to explore how we communicate about this vital issue through her work with the UN climate team and most recently, UK start-up, The Good Stream.

With many people being 'at capacity' in terms of hearing about global warming and climate change, what we say and how we say it has never been more important.
