Objective

To help businesses simplify their language, which will allow them to uncover and fix underlying problems in their documents and processes.


Method

Experience:

Naomi honed her writing skills by working as a capital markets and litigation lawyer. She learned how to express complex ideas in simple terms and saw firsthand the consequences of poorly written documents.


For four years, Naomi taught Singapore law students how to write effectively using plain language principles. She designed her legal writing course to be practical, interactive and fun. For her efforts, she was awarded the SMU Law School Most Outstanding Adjunct Award for 2010/2011.
