“Look for people who will aim for the remarkable, who will not settle for the routine.”

— David Ogilvy

Background. I have more than 30 years’ experience as a writer, public relations practitioner and corporate communications specialist both in Canada and Hong Kong. My freelance clients include leading companies in sectors such as transport, academia, property development, finance and technology.

Capabilities. My clients appreciate the analytical approach I take to understand their business as well as the creative insights I provide to bring their message to life.  I am also highly conscientious of the need for accuracy throughout the content development process.

Services. I can provide a full range of corporate writing services, including annual reports, sustainability reports, brochures, corporate video scripts and editorial assignments. In addition to these services, I also have expertise in speechwriting and preparing PowerPoint presentations.

Additional resources. I have developed an extensive network of translators, graphic designers, photographers and public relations specialists. I can also provide expertise in preparing GRI compliant reports through a group of top sustainability professionals — The Purpose Business.

Rates. Every project is different, so there is no definitive one-size-fits-all answer. Price will vary depending on the complexity of the assignment, which may range from simply polishing a rough draft provided by you to carrying out a full campaign involving research, interviews and hiring outside suppliers.

Working with me. Simply contact me, and we can begin discussing your needs. I will then carry out a preliminary investigation of your company, your products and services, and the market in which you operate. Once I receive a fully-detailed brief from you, we can get started.
