Episode 45: Kim Marsh

Episode 45: Kim Marsh

September 9, 2022

My guest today on the Mamas at Work Podcast is Kim Marsh. And I will let her introduce herself!

Hi there. Kim here, serving as your guide to The Open Book Company.

I'm a writing coach, editor, ghostwriter and a communications fiend. Oh, and I should mention that I'm NOT a New York Times bestselling author (though, I'm still a worthwhile human). 

I help authors, aspiring writers and "but-I'm-not-really-a-writer" writers to find, hone and use their voice. ​I am here to help you to craft your story verbally (think: job interviews, speeches, presentations) as well as in written format (social, blogs, articles, books). I do this through a coaching practice rooted in empathy, authenticity and self-compassion.

I also love to write with (and for) executive coaches, inspirational speakers, organizational leaders and solopreneurs, helping to get their messages out into the world through books, articles, blogs, speeches, social media copy and more. Great writing starts with great listening and together we'll explore your goals and amplify your voice.

I have fifteen years of experience across the non-profit and corporate sectors under my belt spanning various disciplines including Global Diversity, Equity + Inclusion (DEI) Communications + Programming, Women's Leadership Development, LGBTQ+ Workplace Equity, Human Resources, Project Management, Organizational Culture, Recruitment, Social Issues and Childhood Education. 

I would love to hear more about your writing, storytelling and communications goals. 

 

If writing is any part of your business or life, be sure to reach out to Kim at her links below;
