Thank you for your beautifully written copy. Not only did it sail past a hard-nosed Compliance department. It holds the record for the best performing Real Insurance email campaign of ALL TIME. Although it was sent out a month ago, it continues to achieve new sales. I’m thrilled.

His quick grasp of the brief through to a generally ‘right first time’ (or close to) copy approach makes working with Stephen incredibly easy and, of course, cost-effective. We recommend him highly.
Martin Whelan, Commonwealth Bank
Acting CMO
Stephen and his team did a fantastic job of creating a web site that had a consistent tone and also meet the requirements of our diverse audience. The process was seamless from brief to final copy.
Louise Genge, BPAY

By using a specialist provider we get to tap into years of industry experience and learnings, while significantly reducing the time required on our end to brief in the ‘technical jargon’. Projects are always delivered on time, to brief and at an affordable price, enabling us to respond quickly to new business opportunities with highly effective, customer centric communications.
