Clearsay is owned and led by Isabel Walker, an award-winning former journalist whose expertise lies in helping people to communicate clearly and with high impact to different audiences. She works with businesses, health professionals, not-for-profit and public sector organisations at national and international level.
After a first career as a health journalist and editor, working for high-profile UK newspapers and magazines (including The Daily Mail and The Sunday Telegraph), Isabel co-founded the UK patient advocacy group Action on Pre-eclampsia (APEC), which she led from 1992 to 2000.
Her training in key message development, media and presentation skills and storytelling for business draws on her unique expertise as a writer, editor, campaigner and educator.
