Good Comms

— Communication is a force for good. Check out how I can help you further with


Inclusive communication

The world of work is currently diverse, dispersed and digital and will continue to be. The ability to communicate inclusively is not just best practice, it’s necessary to engage and keep employees, reach a broader audience, and create a more equitable society.

It’s more than just using the right words; it’s about creating a space where everyone feels heard, respected, and valued.

What’s in it for you

Inclusive communication is the cornerstone of a more equitable, understanding, and harmonious world. It’s about recognizing that every voice matters and actively working to ensure that everyone has a seat at the table, a voice in the conversation, and an opportunity to thrive. If employee engagement and global reach matters to you, then you’re in the right place. You even get social progress and equal opportunities as bonus.

Why me?

Receive guidance on inclusive communication from not just an experienced communication professional but someone who has made it her purpose to create a sense of belonging at work.

Inclusivity is the red thread that connects all of my post-graduate research projects. Good Comms is built to create a more inclusive world through communication. Some projects I worked on that covers this topic are:

  • Diversity and inclusion and anti-racism program for the United Nations Development Program,

  • Employee engagement program that includes strategy development for, and

  • Culture change and leadership event for Signify (formerly Philips Lighting).

What they say

Chared developed and implemented a communication plan for us to engage employees in the creation of our product's strategy. She took our storytelling to the next level with her video expertise. She also left us with a plan so well-thought-out and detailed we could implement it even when her contract was over.

It's been a pleasure having Chared on the team, making sure that her department was covered while always sharing such thoughtful ideas, observations and questions. She is a true internal communication scholar with an unwavering commitment to creating inclusive environments. She has lot of good to share!

Head of Internal Communications,
It was great to be back at work and see that I did not have to pick up the same projects that were already on the table before I left for my maternity break. Chared did a good job managing the projects and leaving a very detailed handover document. I could slowly get used to working again. It was like starting anew. I am impressed by Chared's quality of work.
