Martin Cutts

Martin Cutts conceived and co-founded the Plain English Campaign in 1979 and was its driving force for 10 years. He left in 1989 to form Words at Work, a firm which writes and designs documents, and last year ran 140 courses in writing skills for government and business. In 1994, he set up the Plain Language Commission to do research in the field, particularly plain law. A regular broadcaster, he is a leading voice in the international plain language movement.
