Hello. I’m Barb Sawyers, the energy behind Sticky Communication. I’m dedicated to turning good talkers into great writers so they can connect with more people and improve their results through better business writing.
I’d love to show you how you can apply your ease with talking to all the writing you’re expected to do, through my blog, newsletter, book, online learning, coaching and speaking.
I first caught on to the dynamics of the spoken word when I wrote speeches for politicians. Then I applied what worked in talking to written communication. More recently, I’ve plunged into blogging and other social media, where communication is a conversation. What’s more, I’ve created a unique, individual-focused approach to online business writing training.
I have the education and experience to back up my unique approach. I have a master’s degree in journalism and an honors B.A. in philosophy. I have 30 years’ experience, the first half mostly with government, financial services and an agency for Apple Canada, the rest working for clients that include Livingston International, Honeywell, IBM, Carlton Cards, St. Michael’s Hospital, Providence Healthcare and Volunteer Canada, along with several ministries of the Canadian and Ontario governments. I’ve also written for many businesses and nonprofits so small you’ve never heard of them.
I’m an active member of Toronto IABC and the past chair of the Professional Independent Communicators.
