    Expert writing for the busy entrepreneur

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 31

    You need someone who quickly understands your needs, reviews your materials, asks intelligent questions, understands the answers, and lays out your thoughts and ideas clearly and effectively. You need RESULTS NOW, if not sooner. You don’t have time to educate a generic writer without the background to climb that steep learning curve quickly. “Incredible attention to detail and the ability to thoughtfully lay out complex ideas and concepts into an eBook that will give those with no experience in the subject a primer. Final product was provided ahead of schedule on a busy holiday week. We’re already talking about our next project.” “Opher did an amazing job. Took personal interest and delivered exceptional results. Went above and beyond what was initially agreed, focusing on nothing other than project success. Highly recommended when you want to get things done.” “Another amazing project with Opher! He’s fast, efficient and extremely talented. I'm about to hire him again."

I am a well-published academic author, Applied Research Psychologist, award-winning teacher, and evaluator of organizational programs, policies, and change initiatives. I recently left my faculty position at a University of Wisconsin System school to provide caregiving and support to my parents, so I'm new to Elance, but I'm certainly not new to freelance consulting.

    Professional Speech Writer

    Australia - Last active: 20 days ago - Tests: 5

    I don't find myself with a lot of time, but I have a special talent in writing prose that is profound, erudite and abundantly clear. If you have a high-value task that requires that special x-factor; the additional 'oomph' to get it across the line from average to exceptional, you can entrust it to me. I have written speeches for many important people, including prominent politicians. I have also contributed language to determinations and communiques from some of the world's highest-profile bodies, including the United Nations and the G20. As a qualified lawyer with a Master's Degree in international law, I have extensive experience in drafting both domestic and international legal instruments (legislation, regulations, treaties and travaux preparatioux). I have also worked as a financial analyst, financial advisor and currently have my own start-up company. I love to write, but am picky with my projects. I have my own style, which I have fine-tuned over more than a decade writing in a private and government context, for Ministers across a range of portfolio areas. If you would like to see a sample of my writing, please contact me. For an honest sample of my work, I include below a link to a second reading speech I wrote for the Australian (Commonwealth) Attorney-General introducing a Bill to the Federal Parliament. This speech was written in two hours and was delivered unedited from my original version. http://www.aph.gov.au/binaries/hansard/reps/dailys/dr240311.pdf (pp 3143-5)
