Word on the street

“One thing that is apparent immediately is that the writers have a solid understanding of marketing and of what it takes, specifically, to “sell” our organization. Their enthusiasm is contagious and the advice is always backed up with solid reasoning. It’s a real pleasure to work with them.”

Peter Stewart
Executive Director
Orléans Chamber of Commerce

“Our firm first hired the team in the fall of 2011 to write copy and material for our new website being designed at that time. We have hired them since that time on at least two further occasions both for further web work and for other smaller ‘pieces’ because, among other things, their work is catchy, it attracts customers and they are a pleasure to work with.

Norman C. Miller

“The team did a terrific job of taking our bare facts, researching the third-party requirements, asking the right questions of us and putting together an award-winning proposal under a very tight deadline. They are easy—and even fun—to work with.

Craig Bater

“All I have to say is WOW, what great content! So straightforward, no fluff, very smart. I am so impressed! But not surprised!”

“Ron ably assisted me in getting the story of my late father, Dr. Bud Keenan, into the Globe and Mail Lives Lived section. Competition for this column is intense with many more biographies submitted than can be printed. His writing skills succeeded in crafting a story that made for great reading.”

Dr. Dirk Keenan
Keenan Health Centre
“I would recommend that anyone setting up a website or preparing a brochure use their services—money well spent.”

Norman C. Miller

“Any good writer can use proper grammar and spelling but the writers stand out because they write to sell. Even more than that, they produce text that needs little, if any, revisions—that makes my job a lot easier.

Taylor Hunter

“I thought that you’d like to know the reaction to Powering Up has been very positive. Included in this commentary was how clear and effective the messaging is. For example, the Secretary General of an important international agency commented that it was one of the best reports he’d read.

“ They are quick to get up to speed, highly focused and willing to listen, three qualities that ensure we get top-quality communications advice and products.

Lise Poissant
Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy

“Their editors and writers ensure that our newsletters are not just grammatically correct, but that they have a sense of style that make them easy to read. The reality of tourism economics is that we often have to talk about numbers. Your writer makes sure the numbers are both meaningful and interesting to read.”

Marta Stelmaschuk

“I know the value of always keeping in contact with my customers—I see it every day—but it is tough to find the time to do it on a regular basis. With their customer contact program, they take care of everything, giving me a highly customized monthly electronic news bulletin that is both useful to my customers and keeps them aware of us and what we offer. Best of all, it costs far less than advertising and other less-targeted ways of reaching our market.”

Chef Marc Miron
Cuisine & Passion Gourmet Foods
“They were able to take my thoughts and translate them into the exact message I wanted to get across, not only to my clients, but to prospective clients, as well. The people were outstanding.

Bob Grant

“He edited a summary report for us on very short notice. After Ron got through what we had provided, it was like a whole different report: clear, concise and professionally modified. He even took the time—under already tight timelines—to edit a series of data tables that gave the report that extra touch. Very impressive. We will definitely not hesitate to use their services again.”

Julio Garasa
Human Resources and Skills Development Canada
“Ron was able to take very complex material and turn it quickly into product that we could use to address questions and concerns from a range of stakeholders.

Valerie Lasher
