Qualifications and experience

✴️ I'm an editor with a background in business consulting.
✴️ If you give me your words … I'll treat them with respect and help you make them better.
✴️ I'm Scottish, live in Devon, UK, and work with clients worldwide.

For many of my clients, English is not their first language. 


I got into publishing in a roundabout way – picking up other skills along the way … 

​Having completed a BA in Business Management with French and German and then an MSc in Operational Research (applied maths) in Glasgow in the 1980s, I worked in the steel industry in Scotland as a process engineer and did research into artificial intelligence (AI) for an engineering consultancy. I then spent a few years working in Zürich and a short time in Paris and London, where I taught English. 

​In the early 1990s, I joined a management consulting firm and, for the next 14 years, worked throughout Europe delivering business improvement projects in the automotive, chemical, FMCG, food, energy and manufacturing sectors. 

In 2008, I began to do editorial work for various businesses, so I decided to retrain as an editor and proofreader. In 2011, I started my own editorial company – Pensato Studios.​
