Welcome to Blake Chapman Communication! Although formally established as a science communication business in 2015, I bring 15+ years of experience in researching, developing and clearly communicating scientific and industry concepts for genuine impact.
At Blake Chapman Communication, I pride myself on forming genuine relationships with clients. These are built based on respect, open and honest communication, and truly listening to and taking the time to understand client needs. My small, boutique nature enables me to provide a high degree of flexibility in project timing and the ability to accommodate (sometimes rapidly) changing or unexpected situations. I am a big fan of face-to-face communication and take this approach whenever possible. However, I also understand the uncertainties and difficulties of in-person meetings in this current crazy world. Fortunately, I am also adept at virtual communication and highly capable of independently carrying out work that will exceed expectations with little guidance.
With Blake Chapman Communication, you will receive:
I am privileged to provide services across a broad range of fields and disciplines. Not only does this keep things really fun and exciting, but it has also enabled me to approach topics with an extremely unique and well-rounded foundation. Because I have worked with, or in, a range of industries, research fields, and professions, I think about topics from many different angles and can put myself in the shoes of many audiences. As an ‘intelligent non-specialist’, I am capable of mimicking the knowledge base of generalist reviewer. This will help you to avoid some of the most common mistakes you may not even realise you are making: losing your readers attention and buy-in because of too little background context, too much jargon or text that is too technical.
Blake Chapman Communication focuses on several key services:
I bring a wealth of experience across the entire spectrum of idea generation, concept development, background research, networking, stakeholder engagement, and the delivery of highly polished, useful, audience-targeted packets of information of exceptionally high quality.
It is often very difficult to critique your own work. We can help!
Proofreading is an absolutely essential component of writing.
Nothing hinders credibility – and turns readers off – more than simple typos and grammatical errors throughout a document. Yet, it can be very difficult to proofread your own work when you are so close to it. Your mind automatically skims over the text, missing mistakes. And let’s face it, English is a very complex and sometimes highly illogical language. If English is not your first language (or even if it is!), proofreading can be a very daunting task. At its best, it can still be cumbersome, monotonous and time-consuming.
For student theses in particular, the time supervisors spend proofreading could often be spent more advantageously on other tasks. Having a document thoroughly proofread prior to submission also means that there will be fewer corrections that come back, saving time (and money) for both students and supervisors.

For students: When accepting a proofreading quotes, you will be asked to confirm that proofreading is allowable for the writing you are submitting, and that this service does not breach course/organisational rules.
