Versatility is the key to well-targeted copy and I believe I am versatile enough to hit the bull’s eye for your clients. My knack for adapting to various writing styles has been honed by working for different media in a wide range of sectors. For example, I’ve written Bridgestone Europe’s website, EAN International’s 25th anniversary book, travel books for Fodor’s Travel Guides and produced communications for a Member of Provincial Parliament.
As you will be aware from my resume, I have considerable experience writing for a variety of organisations in the spheres of automotive, business, finance, technology, retail, travel and tourism, healthcare and non-profit, with special emphasis on ad copy, brochures, websites and reports. Since I have worked in both a business communications and journalistic capacity, I have gained the skills and training to target your clients.
In Brussels, my work took on an international level writing for advertising agencies like Ogilvy, McCann Erickson, Draft Karamba and for such clients as Opel, Chiquita, Concerto, TAO, BIAC, Shurgard, Robert Half International, Guidant, SN Brussels Airlines, Komatsu, MRI, Sharp and The Bulletin.
Launching my own communications company in 1997 was a quick introduction into becoming a well-rounded writer doing press and promotional material and articles for a diverse clientele such as advertising agencies, marketing companies, publications and multinationals like the Bank of Montreal Group of Companies (Y2K project), Canadian Fire Chiefs Quarterly Magazine, Toronto Tourism and the Dragon Boat Race Festival.
