RCI am a freelance writer, speechwriter and editor who specialises in women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

After starting as a reporter in the 1980s, I have spent the last 25 years working mainly for corporate clients and public-sector organisations, but with occasional work on newspapers as a freelance sub-editor.

Some of my most interesting projects have come through the agency Robert Taylor Communications. In 2014 these included:

  • Editing of the report Leading MDG Action (for NORAD, the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation)
  • Editing of the report Success Factors for Women’s and Children’s Health (for PMNCH, the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health)
  • Editing of technical reports for the Joint Research Council of the European Commission
  • Writing a speech for the CEO of the Technology Strategy Board
  • Writing a speech for the President of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply.

This blog

On these pages you will find posts on subjects that interest me and where I have some knowledge, either from personal experience or as a result of work. The main areas are:

  • Women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health policy
  • The Millennium Development Goals / Sustainable Development Goals
  • Alcohol policy, health and drinking culture
  • Books and authors
  • Writing and editing advice.

Most of the posts will be unique to this site, but some may have appeared elsewhere first, such as on the Robert Taylor Communications (RTC) website. I will let you know when this is the case.
