Mark Colleran, Senior Customer Insight Manager
‘Jon has taken our International Millennials research projects in 2016/17 and our 2017 State of Pay report, all of which include both vast amounts of data and qualitative findings, and brought them to life with insightful analysis and creative writing. Jon’s fluid and natural writing style has helped to make these detailed and potentially ‘dry’ studies engaging and accessible, highlighting key insights and themes without over-stretching the underlying data. The reports have been well received both internally and externally here in the UK and internationally. We look forward to working with Jon on future research projects.’
Charles Wander, Chairman
‘We engaged Jon to support us with our website project, which included some refreshing of our brand. We were impressed by his rigorous and thoughtful approach to the project, as well as his appreciation of the dynamics of the legal sector. Jon conducted a review of our brand, including interviewing a number of our partners, and presented his findings to us with authority and insight. He then developed a set of key messages defining the firm’s personality and offer, a tone of voice guide and an overarching brand line, all of which have been incorporated into our website and help to drive our communications.
Jon’s work for us included recasting much of our old web content, using these tools. He worked closely with us and our web designers to help deliver an engaging and professional marketing platform that we feel reflects our business and its ambitions.
Jon was a pleasure to deal with. He showed a good understanding of our business, and interacted well with our partners and the management group driving the website project. We welcomed his willingness to challenge established thinking. I have no hesitation in recommending him.’

‘Jon worked with us on a complete re-write of our website and marketing materials. He invested a huge amount of his time on getting to know our business and culture, and then used that to produce some great copy that worked immediately. I look forward to working with him again.’
Rebecca Green, Assistant Director, Clients and Markets
‘I’ve worked with Jon for a number of years, initially on Deloitte’s Alumni programme communications where he helped us with lively and engaging features for our magazine and latterly our website. He’s a great person to put in front of senior executives as he can more than hold his own interviewing big personalities with busy schedules and always manages to get to the heart of what makes them and their businesses tick.
Most recently, Jon worked on Deloitte’s flagship Impact Report, both in 2012 and 2013. He edited the entire site for tone of voice and generated lots of punchy and engaging case studies illustrating not just what the firm has done but what difference it has made. His contribution really helped us to see a large and very high-profile project to successful completion.
Jon’s great to work with, always asking the questions that need to be answered, and providing well-written, accurate and persuasive copy. He always meets his deadlines and is flexible enough to adapt to projects that evolve as they progress. Finally, he’s good company in the down time between interviews and shoots – just don’t get him started on barefoot running. I have no hesitation in recommending him for writing, editing and communications consulting.’
Andrea Arlidge, CEO
‘Jon is an expert communicator who brings huge experience and skill to every project. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a consultant on messaging and tone of voice, and then carrying this forward into copy and content writing.
He has provided expert communications support to Wellsway at a critical time in our development, finding the right voice and priority of messages to communicate a complex and potentially unsettling restructuring to a diverse target audience. Initially Jon came on board to write prospectuses for the school and for the sixth form. In the increasingly competitive world of education these are key documents and Jon was able to capture and project precisely what makes Wellsway so special. He has subsequently helped us to completely overhaul our website, providing copywriting, editing and tone of voice services. I have found him a pleasure to work with and a tremendous asset in clarifying and then delivering on our communication objectives.’
Helen Bisset, Founder and MD
‘Jon delivered results beyond my expectation. I gave him an almost impossible brief – to work through a mountain of detail (which I myself did not entirely understand!) and sift it into a coherent and sensitive communication. He delivered an exceptional piece of work with consistent copy across all customer contact points. I would work with Jon again in a flash – and if you are looking for an exceptional copy writer, then Jon Dewey fits that bill.’
