I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO AM I? I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. WHAT IS MY BACKGROUND? I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. JUST HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? By asking questions, listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT ME?

Communications Strategist - Writer, Editor, Creati...

Spain - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 14

Every company, organization, and individual has a motivation – a thought that comes into being, waiting for the moment to be expressed into actions and words. Often, thoughts linger on the verge of development due to the inability to partially or entirely transform them into literature; or the hesitation that doing so will deviate from the powerful essence of a thought that could ‘become’. Benefit from a communications strategist who will collaborate with you – from a writer, editor, and creative wordsmith perspective – to create original content as well as interpret your ideas, concepts, and literary works. Your existing communications will also be developed and enhanced to exceed your objectives and goals. We will work together to identify areas for improvement while outlining a strategy for change, and exploring innovative possibilities. Ours is a potential collaboration towards successfully creating, developing, and achieving your communication goals. I offer clarification through consultation and compose to establish literary flow. I am a wordsmith architect whose expertise is complemented by 20+ years of collaborating with companies from multiple sectors, corporate-level executives, entrepreneurs, and others. My sought-after consultation is also a reflection of my inherent ability to ‘engage’ by accessing the feeling of what you are trying to communicate. My collaborations have included: Entrepreneurs - establishing clear communication of their ideas Corporations - helping to develop written strategies Websites - in search of quality content Book authors - requiring a keen eye for creative and emotional infusion Book publishers - editing and proofreading for continuity Business startups - developing the foundation of their identity Marketing companies - for perspective to improving and expanding their message Translations companies - quality English writing across multiple industries The mom - seeking to express the depth of her sentimentality The student - fulfilling his/her written university requirements The executive - requiring beneficial insight and organization These collaborations, and more, are supported by an ongoing recognition of achievements and acknowledgements: "You get me." "You exceeded my expectations." "You knew exactly what I wanted to say." "You understood the objective from my perspective." "Your ability to evaluate, communicate, and deliver is extraordinary."
