    Professional Copywriter, Speechwriter - Reach Out, Connect, Sell.

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

    Words that sell, words that move; words that compel you to take action. Effective communicators know how to sell. Great communicators have their audience desperate to buy. Do you have an exciting new product that the world needs to hear about? An upcoming speech that has the potential to launch you to the stratosphere in your field? Each of my clients has a story to tell that is too important to entrust to anybody but the best. Effective writing is an art form. It is the art of less, rather than more. It is the art of giving your audience much, but never all. An effective story, well told, can make all the difference. To your business, to your career and to your life. Words are powerful. Used effectively, there is no limit to what you can achieve. About me: I have written speeches for Princes and Prime Ministers. I have contributed language to determinations and communiques from some of the world's highest-profile bodies, including the United Nations and the G20. I undertake my work with a high level of discretion so if you would like to see samples of my writing, please contact me. For an honest sample of my work, I include below a link to a speech I wrote for the Australian (Commonwealth) Attorney-General introducing a Bill to the Federal Parliament: http://www.aph.gov.au/binaries/hansard/reps/dailys/dr240311.pdf (pp 3143-5)
