About David Lawrence

Communications Services for International Development

David Lawrence Writer Editor

Who I Am

My name is David Lawrence. I'm a writer and editor based in Ukraine. For most of the last 20 years I've managed technical assistance and investment programs in East Asia and the former Soviet Union. Now I draw on that experience to provide communications services for international development projects.

What I Do

I help developmental organizations tell the world what they do. Drawing from interviews and official documents, I write and edit:

  • Project briefs and success stories
  • Staff profiles
  • Corporate blog posts
  • Content for websites
  • Operational reports.

I also design, build and manage websites, write for publications, and provide communications advice.


My Clients

Since 2010, my main clients have been:

Although most of my work is with large institutions, I also work with small organizations and individual clients. 

My Availability

I'm fully booked through July 31, 2015. From September I will be available for part-time or short-term projects.

How I Can Help Your Project

I can contribute to your success by:

  • Writing text that makes your project sound interesting and relevant, even if it isn't
  • Making technical or poorly-written text digestible
  • Freeing managers from time-consuming writing and editing responsibilities
  • Keeping donors, governments, business communities, NGOs, and the public informed about your activities.
