Hi! My name is David Noble. I write for a living or maybe I should say I live for writing. My job is to help you tell people what it is you really want to tell them and get them to believe you.
Why don’t you take a look around my site to see how my passion for words and communication can work for you? Look at recent work, contact me and discover exactly how I can help your words sing.
I write articles and releases
If you want articles and press releases to reach out with messages that are human, simple and straightforward rather than the language of spokespeople, lawyers or bureaucrats, then get in touch.
Brochures, newsletter´s? Let me loose!
Looking for awesome brochure copy based on a solid grasp of material and corporate objectives? I have the finely-tune instincts that will get to the heart of your company goals.
Ask and I’ll transform your ideas into a published memoir, speech, article, story or report geared to win critical acclaim and officially credited to you.
Translate vs. Transwrite
When translating from Swedish into English, I act as a ‘transformer’, moving beyond mere accurate translation to creatively adapting language content and style to the audience – fast and cost efficiently.
Passion is a wonderful source of energy
I have been a writer with a strong corporate focus for the past 20 years. I believe passionately about my work, ideas and my client’s brand and objectives.
I help company’s build professional credibility by writing corporate literature from letters to annual reports that serve as a useful and vigorous means of getting a point across.
Together with my clients, I develop strategic communications tools using words that are human, simple and straightforward rather than the language of spokespeople, bureaucrats or lawyers, while avoiding becoming too chatty or light.
Over the years, I have built a deep understanding of real business needs by being involved in the development of global communications programs. And, I’ve implemented countless advertising and publicity campaigns.
Corporate writing is about giving voice to what you want to say using the language of everyday speech in newsletters, marketing brochures, press releases, web pages, translations, training manuals and other literature.
I will help you use the awesome power of the written word to leverage ideas, sales, employee loyalty and investor interest. Get the five “W’s” right and you make a great impression. Getting it wrong can seriously damage the credibility of your business!
If you are passionate about what you want to say, get in touch, and discover how my passion about my work, ideas and what you want to achieve can give your messages a real edge.
I also coach companies on the art of well-written business communication, from coaching speakers to writing letters.

THE SHORTEST DISTANCE BETWEEN
TWO PEOPLE IS A SMILE
The complete history of David Noble
I have worked for some four decades in the communications sector as a journalist, broadcaster, author, and international public relations consultant and business communications strategist.
As a journalist, foreign correspondent and stringer in the ’60s and ’70s, I worked for media such as the BBC, Sveriges Radio, ABC (US), ABC (Australia), Metro Media News, The Guardian, International Herald Tribune, Chicago Daily News, Toronto Globe and Mail, Yorkshire Post, Birmingham Evening Mail and others.
I launched Sweden’s first English-language business magazine, Marketplace Sweden, in the late 70s. I also worked on developing international press materials for the Swedish Challenge for the Americas Cup, the Pelle Pettersson-designed ‘Sverige’.
From 1982 until 2004, I ran my own public relations company in London (Networks PR Limited) partnering clients such as AB Volvo, Electrolux, SAS, Ericsson, Renault, ABB, SKF, Sunds Defribator and others. I also launched a series of companies such as Context Translations Limited (translation bureau), Target News Limited (corporate Investor Relations database comprising contact information on financial institutions and journalists) and Globenews.com Limited (an Internet based corporate news agency).
As an author, I have written, published and contributed to a number of books, including ‘A Book about Volvo´ (1985), ‘The War & Peace Book’ (1976), and ‘The Swedish Challenge for the Americas Cup’ (1978).
I love what I do – delivering dreams to others. Writing has been my dream-come-true since I was 13 years old, living in a remote house deep in the Northern English countryside. I’ve enjoyed every second of being a player, and look forward to never sitting on the sidelines.
What I offer
Whether you need a speech, newsletter, press release, translation or any of the below, I will do my absolute best to deliver English that is compelling, audience-focused, and in line with your objectives. I also promise to deliver on time and on budget. I will work collaboratively and closely with you and your team to bring your literature to life and produce the results you want.
Rates are negotiable and depend on the specifics of each individual project. The basic rate is €80 per hour; but usually cost estimates are given for each project.
