Jeremy Renals, Creative Copywriter and Technical Writer

Jeremy is the Oxford Word Barber.


There’s a saying attributed to Einstein (like many things on the web):
“If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough”.

This is what I do. If it’s techno-speak or business-speak I understand your challenge properly and explain it simply.

As an experienced freelance technical author for business in Oxford and Oxfordshire I'm skilled at researching, analysing and understanding difficult ideas - from road maintenance to radiography - and making them clear.

My credentials include

  • a degree in maths and physics where I got an A grade for every paper
  • experience since 1997 in writing about business and technology
  • experience since 2001 teaching a range of business and technical courses
  • two heats and a semi-final in TV’s famous black Mastermind chair.

And if there’s a message to be crafted I’ll be as creative a copywriter as you like.
My activities include:

  • web copy
  • magazine advertorials and news articles
  • technical manuals
  • white papers
  • bid proposals
  • newsletters
  • brochures
  • magazine adverts
  • speeches
  • billboard copy
  • mailer copy
  • press ad copy
  • radio scripts and adverts
  • letters
  • educational material
  • rules and entry forms...
  • fact just about anything that needs writing or saying to inform or persuade.

In 2016 I completed an 18 month project to write guidance on an electronic gadget for installers, and present groundbreaking computer technology to owners of the revolutionary Raspberry Pi computer. At the same time I worked for over a year at Jaguar Land Rover, as part of a successful team transforming their HR offering. My role was to extract clear directions from unwieldy policy documents.

There's also my two years in the front line with FFwd Precision Marketing, working with most media that a brand leader business would employ. My work has helped Toshiba Air Conditioning, The Eye Clinic, Accor Hotels, Marshalls Pasta and others.
Equally relevant is a year spent at Amey Infrastructure Services, responding to invitations to tender for multi-million pound staffing and maintenance contracts.
I’ve also written technical manuals for a biodiesel processor, an advertorial for an X-ray scanner, web copy for QinetiQ's energy and environmental services, marketing material for energy saving technology, and copy for a range of media promoting Business Link.
I've had a book on accounting published by Manchester University Press.

I also worked in local radio from 1996 to 2004, at Oxygen FM and as a regular contributor on BBC Radio Oxford.
Other freelance clients include RDI resource dynamics international, where I overhauled their marketing communications to boost business.
