I have worked in the education sector for nearly twenty years generally in a management role. For 12 years I worked in commerce and industry for multinational conglomerates in a variety of departments including sales, data processing, invoicing, accounts, communication and entertainment. I have been self employed and worked freelance as a trainer and a writer and I have set up and run my own business in Tourist Information and Accommodation.
During my time in employment I have written and rewritten a great deal of policy documentation and white papers for various departments; and for online education projects such as those of Times100 online. I have researched, written and produced articles for online travel magazines and websites such as www.guide2poitoucharentes.com - varying in length from 400 to 3000 words. I have undertaken profiling for recruitment and written and provided applications for fund raising projects.
Well accustomed and experienced in writing and rewriting a variety of material. I have designed and produced websites such as www.legrandsaule.co.uk as a result developing a good knowledge of SEO, keyword applications, and the use of social media, Google and other search engines. Alongside of the website I have been involved in writing and producing advertising literature such as brochures and tourist guides to lure the customer to return for a longer stay. I have also researched and written books – text books for schools and have produced an auto biography as a ghost writer which was successfully published.
Well versed in producing power point presentations I have written and produced them for training purposes for other organisations and for training for which I have been responsible. I have written and produced educational power points such which have been successfully published by Zig Zag online publishers. More recently I have reworked and combined two power points to provide one less verbose and more user friendly and eye catching.
I believe my role in admin and education ensures that I can offer that top quality English standard you require for your writing – whether it’s for copywriting, editing, proof reading, rewriting or researching. Having always worked at management level I am accustomed to working to tight deadlines and can deliver the goods for realistic prices. I work professionally and discreetly and look to provide you with an efficient and effective service.
I am versatile, hard working and enjoy working on my own initiative. I am exceedingly well organised – some say to the point of OCD – and with outstanding typing skills. I enjoy being creative and also work well with my back against the wall to accomplish time scales. My qualifications and experience are extremely varied which allows me to have a greater understanding of a wide range of subjects – a copy of my cv is on the PPH system for your perusal.
