Our first webinar of the year was broadcast on the eve that the Plain Language Act was introduced. PLAIN Communications and Conference Board Member Lodewijk van Noort interviewed three guests.

  • Lynda Harris, founder of Write Limited, the largest plain language consultancy in the world
  • Kate Thompson, Head of Communications at thinkstep-anz, a sustainability consultancy
  • Tatiana Mes, Principal Marketing and Communications Manager, Consumer Wealth, Mercer (N.Z.)

The 40 minute webinar covered what the Plain Language Act means for New Zealand, what a key component clear communication is in sustainability, and what projects are improving financial wellness.
