All contributions were willingly provided, without a single bribe.  

It's their word against mine.

 

Darren Taylor

Managing Director

Head of Strategy & Research

Taylor & Grace 

 

I’ve run my own branding agency Taylor & Grace for more than 10 years and have been working with Melinda for around 2 years. 

 

She writes brilliantly, that’s a given, but her curiosity and ability to get under the hood of a client and to grasp sometimes complex subject matter quickly, makes her exceptional.

 

She's a great asset to our business and our clients.

 

I’m a big fan of her sense of humour too; working with Melinda is easy and such fun!

 

Madeleine Swann

Head of Content,

Niche Media

 

I first engaged Melinda’s services as a freelance writer on our hotel guest travel book series, Welcome To… in 2015. I then commissioned her to write on various topics, for a range of different magazines and client focused material for us at Niche Media. Melinda is able to turn her hand to the widest variety of subjects and is always an absolute pleasure to work with.

 

The two main things a commissioning editor needs and looks for from freelancers are reliability and quality of content. With Melinda, this is what you'll always get. Her professionalism and commitment to excellence were also key to eventually taking the relationship up a level and appointing her as an external contractor to take over responsibility for the editing of the Welcome To... books.

Communications Manager

First National Real Estate

 

Melinda has been a valued contributor to First National Real Estate’s content and inbound marketing initiatives for several years.

She actively seeks direction on a brief, then researches diligently to articulate carefully on behalf of her clients. 

Her capacity for quality content production is reliable, as is her commitment to accuracy.

 

Capable of numerous different voices and writing styles, I’d recommend Melinda to any organisation seeking to improve their website user experience and SEO.  

 

Carina Tomietto

Creative Director

Purpose to Impact

 

I have worked with Melinda on various projects over the last several years. The projects we work on at Purpose to Impact vary in size and complexity.

 

All the projects required speed, in-depth knowledge of the sector and patience, lots of it! All of which Melinda was able to gracefully tackle. 

 

Melinda has a 'can-do' attitude with every writing challenge thrown her way. She is always quick to break down the project into tasks, provide timelines and strategic advice. 

 

Quick to gain an understanding of the market, Melinda also provides solid creative advice. 

 

Her genius skill in writing is a gift and will transform the most boring and complex text into an enjoyable read.

 

Oliver Ramm

Ecommerce and Marketing Manager

Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm

 

During my time as Ecommerce and Marketing Manager for the Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm hotel, I had the pleasure of working with Melinda as senior copywriter for the hotel's blog. Over 4 years, she wrote hundreds of posts for us covering arts, culture, music, history, food and wine in Berlin. 

 

I found Melinda to be professional, flexible, and more than capable. She has great research skills and a unique voice fuelled by her passion for the subjects involved. Although a foreigner in Berlin herself at the time, she somehow managed to offer the local perspective, giving our 5 star hotel guests a uniquely special experience during their visit.

 

Her flexible and instinctive approach enabled her to work with foreign language press releases and content, and across a range of press departments and contacts. 

 

Karen Dempsey

Senior Epidemiologist

Menzies School of Health Research

 

As an epidemiologist at Menzies School of Health Research and previously as a doctoral candidate, I engaged Melinda’s editing talents to edit key epidemiological reports on a number of occasions, and to edit my thesis.

 

Melinda’s unique editing skills extend from seeking out typos, misplaced commas, spaces and grammatical errors to refining complicated medical/scientific manuscripts.

 

Melinda’s meticulous attention to detail is second to none. 

 

I have no hesitation in recommending her to professional colleagues and other doctoral candidates.
