To See Or Not To See

help you get people to read your story

I work with businesses large and small to help them do what they do better. If you have a great story and don’t know where to start, I can do anything from giving you a gentle shove in the right direction to driving the train.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a few casual advice sessions or a major brand overhaul. For each project, the goal is to teach you enough that you eventually won’t need me.

Some questions to consider:

  • Is your press release as attention-grabbing as you think?
  • Are you talking to your audience with language they understand and in places where they are?
  • Is your website helping or hindering?
  • Is investing time in social media the right choice for you?
  • Would changing the tone of voice you use in your written material change your customer experience?
  • Do your audience think of your business the way you want them to?

If you’ve got a project you need help with, please do drop me a line. If I can’t help, I may know someone who can.

I’m based in Cologne, Germany, but have worked with clients remotely in North America, the UK and Australia. I’m also quite happy to come to you.
