About Cardamom Addict
At its essence Confessions of a Cardamom Addict is diarisation of the edible kind.  Life inspires my food choices and food choices inspire my life. You'll find both here.

Peacock Blue Communications: Writing and communications consulting services  
Jasmine is the principal and founder of Peacock Blue Communications, a firm specialising in strategic integrated communications planning for both internal and external audiences.  Key strengths include media relations, public relations, social media, copywriting and reputation management.

Communicating well is more than dashing off a bunch of words…and to be honest, it’s more than pristine grammar.

Communicating well is about:
  • knowing your audiences: who they are, what they want, and how they connect to each other and to you;
  • selecting your methods: the most effective ways to get your message across, and
  • finding the words: the ones that speak to your audiences, and convey what you want and need.
Need help with engaging and effective communications?  I can help.
