I’m an experienced copy writer, journalist, corporate communications manager and public relations. I’ve worked with companies like: Microsoft, Cisco, Text 100, Hotwire PR, Compuware and EasyNet.
My strength lies in my decades of experience in developing and managing international communications plans. I’m a great storyteller and a patient and supportive spokesperson trainer. And yes, I write a mean messaging document.
I also enjoy working with small businesses and individuals to help them develop their business strategy and tell their company and personal stories. Examples: charities, hairdressers, psychic and energy healers, musicians and photographers.
If you’re looking for a reliable professional who can write great content, approach each of her projects with the excitement it deserves, and who’s manoeuvred, successfully might I add, the turbulent waters of office politics, takeovers, mergers and general company chaos, talk to me. I’m excited to work with you.
I am a great storyteller who finds gold nuggets in the mundane. I can help you shape and tell your personal and / or business story with confidence and finesse. As well as helping you shape it into an elevator pitch, developing it into a speech or presentation (with or without powerpoint); I will also practice with you so that you can share it with confidence.
Currently I write for technology companies – both big and small. I’m also features editor of the Reiki Association’s Touch magazine.
If you have any questions or want to know a little more about my services, please drop me an email. I am a friendly!
