Who is this site for?

This site is aimed primarily at those whose life is motivated/ impacted/dependent on the written word. What does this mean?

Either

1.You’re new to writing

You know you’ve got something to say but you’re not sure you can achieve the impact you’re after, purely with the written word. You’re passionate, always learning, always eager to share and you long to be part of a bigger community of people who share the same passions and ideas. You know that words are powerful and that words help you influence others.

You want to write yet you know you need some help. Either someone to give your work a once over, to check for typos or bad grammar or to give you a second opinion on how you’ve phrased something. You want to make sure the body of work you create is aligned with the image you’ve built for yourself and the expertise you have in your field. You need some guidance to create work that will build on your strengths and that will support you.

Or

2.You’re an old hat at writing

You’ve been writing for a while, maybe you’ve had a blog for years and you’ve developed a community of like-minded people. Perhaps you’ve even written a book. You’re on the up and up, having established yourself professionally.

You’ve got a plan, an ambitious one, that calls for more writing. Guest posts, regular blog posts, new eBooks or more. And you know you can’t do it all. You need help, someone in the background, who will be there to stand with you and make things happen. A voice that blends seamlessly with yours, bringing your vision to life.

Where do I serve my customers?

Currently based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a customer of mine can be based anywhere in the world. The beauty of writing is that it can be undertaken anytime, anywhere. As such, I have customers both within Malaysia and abroad.

 

Why choose me?

I have a ton of experience built up over the last 19 years. Having run a niche Human Resource publication, HR Matters Magazine (print and digital) for eight years, I now focus on creating and strengthening Vertical Distinct, a media and learning company that supports Technology and Human Resource professionals.

I offer passion, dedication, expertise and a desire to help you succeed in your sphere.
