Services

My name is Ivor Coleman. Hi-Clarity Communications is my independent consultancy, specialising in heritage interpretation and communication.

Since 2006 I’ve helped a variety of organisations across Britain to provide inspiring interpretation that helps people enjoy and value their surroundings.
Whether it’s treasured landscapes, special buildings or historic events, I aim to bring to life their natural, social and cultural significance.

I work flexibly on projects of all sizes and am very happy to team up with others, such as interpretive designers or visitor management experts, to cover all requirements.
Clients tell me that I am professional, creative, well-organised and easy to deal with.

My educational background include an Honours Degree in Geography from Bristol University and a Diploma in Marketing from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

I offer a wide range of capabilities, based on skills built up over a previous twenty year career in senior roles with major companies such as IBM.

The main services I provide are:

  • Devising and delivering complete interpretation projects
  • Content development and copywriting for all media
  • Audio/Visual scriptwriting and presenting
  • Management of interpretation and communication projects
  • Interpretation audits and feasibility studies
  • Development of interpretation strategy and communication plans
  • Brand building and promotional marketing
  • Press, stakeholder and internal communication programmes
  • Public speaking and event hosting
