Pam Langfield – Writer

What do you do?

I analyse reams of information, pick out what’s important and put it into words that are simple, memorable and meaningful. Often, they also convince people to do something.

Why do you do it?

I love making knotty, convoluted copy say everything it needs to in a few well-chosen words. It’s therapeutic. Like ironing. Or is that just me?

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

A friend bought me three little books of ‘Hidden London Walks’. So recently I’ve been exploring different parts of the city and discovering how much of it I’ve been oblivious to – from its history and architecture to its rarefied specialist shops. I now know where to buy a top-notch judge’s wig if I ever need one.

Any hidden talents?

I can recite all the Books of the Old and New Testaments from memory. It’s amazing what they once taught eight-year-olds in rural Northern Ireland. No doubt this will be invaluable one day. I also have medals for skipping.
