What my clients say

A colleague suggested hiring Simon to edit two of my grant applications, and I’m very glad I did. He not only helped us win a prestigious NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence grant, he also got my twice-rejected ARC Discovery grant over the line. Together these grants are worth around $2.9 million.

Simon was brilliant to work with. He is reliable and turns work around quickly, which is important when working to tight funding deadlines. I was very impressed with the way he used easy-to-read, engaging language to convince the assessment panels that our projects were important to fund and that we were the best people to do them.

During the 2016 Federal Election, we needed someone who could rapidly turn around first-person profiles of the real people behind our TV ad.

Simon took the job on at very short notice, combined background briefs, B-roll video and phone interviews and turned them into compelling, clean copy within a matter of days.

We were thrilled with the result, which was used as a key landing page for online advertising.

Simon has done a wonderful job of creating corporate communications for Yarra Valley Water over the past few years. He regularly interviews subject matter experts, effectively translates complex information and submits articles on time.

Simon is a very skilled copywriter who consistently turns my basic text into something that is informed, well balanced and creative.

He is a pleasure to work with and very professional, always managing to 100% nail our brief.
