Development Communications 

Creative communications for organisations
in the development sector

I work with small and large organisations in Australia and Asia on everything from developing communication strategies to building websites and writing blog posts. 

I'm a published writer, editor, web designer, strategist, SEO copywriter and social media manager.


I've lived in developing countries for most of my life, and have worked in communications across government, NGOs and small businesses. I have a passion for great causes and giving back. I can provide creative solutions and strategies to your comms issues. 

If your organisation needs...

  • Edited and proofed reports and website content

  • Jargon-free, succinct and professional writing

  • A communications strategy or planning framework

  • Tailored systems, style guides and campaign planning

  • Interesting articles, blog posts and other media documents

  • Social media strategy and management

  • Someone who can translate development jargon into clear, engaging content

... Then we should talk!

I met Lilani when I was the President of WIG Laos, a not-for-profit volunteer group in Vientiane. Lilani took over the management of our social media and our Facebook engagement and followers doubled. She knows just how to set up appealing and encouraging posts. I highly recommend Lilani for social media marketing and online publicity.
