We are a specialised message and writing company. We help businesses communicate using just the right words. We also offer message consultancy and content-led graphic and web design.

We work with:

The space and satellite applications sector – helping companies develop their message, win funding and attract customers.

Science & tech companies – identifying their core message and conveying their unique strengths and value proposition to customers, investors and the public.

International companies – providing sector analysis and localised content to help them reach the English-speaking market.

Startups – helping post-funding startups expand into their target market, and early stage startups win funding.

SME – bringing clarity to their message, training staff and delivering large projects or discrete pieces of work.

Work Examples

International Media & Communications Company

The company needed a revised script for a training module on compliance with fair competition laws. It had to be shortened from 35 to 20min in 2 days so they could meet a deadline. We reduced the script by 40%, meeting the goal of 20min and delivered it in a day. It was clearer and included all of the key concepts, saving our client time and money.

AMBU-TRANS

AMBU-TRANS is a medical repatriation company. They had an outdated website powered by a CMS that was difficult to update. We transitioned them to WordPress, and did custom-coding, including implementing micro-data star-rating on Google. We also re-wrote the content, ensuring it was SEO friendly and implemented clear call-to-action on every page.

Convoke

Convoke offers secure online file exchange to the financial services industry. They found that they could not summarise what they offered clients so they asked us to create a 1-page overview from a long presentation. We produced a concise explanation of Convoke's highly technical distinctives. Their clients can now see their services at a glance.

Client Testimonials

On behalf of the Theia collaboration (an international team of scientists): We worked with Concision when we were answering the 5th ESA call to launch a medium-size satellite in space. We had designed an experiment to perform extremely precise observations of faint objects in motion in our galaxy. However, we felt that our 50-page proposal failed to capture both the essential characteristics of the mission and its scientific relevance. Concision substantially improved our proposal. They extracted the important information (which is not an easy task given that our text was very technical) and helped us to convey what the space mission was about and what was unique about it. The text the Concision team delivered was indeed very concise and extremely informative. Due to time constraints, we needed them to work very fast and be aligned with the progress we were making on the text. Though we thought this would be an issue, the team was able to adapt to our demands and work very efficiently. They were regularly liaising with us which helped us to converge very fast. In summary, their help made a huge difference in the quality of the manuscript we submitted to ESA. I thus certainly intend to collaborate with them again for other complex proposals and highly recommend the team for any complex document preparation. They are extremely talented at highlighting the most critical aspects of lengthy technical texts and making information concise.

Most website designers have their strengths, be that technical ability, or a flair for design, but rarely do you come across a company that has all the skills necessary across the board.

Thank you for your translation service, I’m very satisfied with your work.

Words matter, and Concision’s attention to detail was skilful and creative. Taking the message of our business and making it concise and understandable. Simply put, "words simplified".
