Dawn Baird is a Partner in Northern Ireland communication consultancy, Sensei. Following an early career working in IT, then in the design and delivery of management and communication skills workshops, Dawn and her husband established Sensei in 2006.
Dawn is obsessed with helping organisations translate their industry’s jargon in order to communicate their marketing messages clearly to clients and customers. She works remotely with international enterprises and their teams from San Francisco to Istanbul. Her work includes planning and developing marketing content, workplace and academic learning and highly technical materials.
She is most at home project-managing complex large-scale writing projects with multiple contributors and mentoring inexperienced writers as they develop their skills. If she’s not debating the merits of one word over another, she’ll be crafting a writing style guide for fledgling copywriters and cheering them on from the sidelines.
