Testimonials

Here’s what my wonderful clients have to say.

‘Helen is great at synthesising research and evaluation reports into easy to understand, plain English, communication and learning pieces.’

Claire Shirley, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

‘Helen helped me properly structure and frame my strategy, with a great eye for finding the gaps and making sure everything stayed consistent and on-message. I’ll definitely be asking for her help again.’

Christina Hoey, Director of Fundraising, Save the Children NZ

‘Helen is a talented editor who is adept at both structural and copy editing. She has a knack for reworking poorly structured arguments or narrative, has a keen, intelligent eye for detail and erroneous content, and is brilliant at tightening a text and making the convoluted plain.’

Paula Wagemaker, Whitireia NZ

‘Helen is calm, capable and professional, and has an acute eye for identifying the critical next step in moving a programme or project forward.’

Joanna Kempkers, New Zealand High Commissioner to India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh

‘Helen was an absolute STAR of an editor. She provided substantial assistance, adapting quickly to technical terminology and producing high-quality work. She was enormously responsive to writer and client queries and produced work ahead of timeline expectation.’

Madison Kennewell, Freelance writer

‘Helen helped us clarify and edit an application for a large grant for a Pacific development project. We were really impressed by her knowledge, professionalism, fast turnaround and willingness to work with our timeframes!’

Jessica Smith, Head of Programme Development and Impact, TearFund

‘It’s rare to come across stand-out talent like Helen. I’ve had the privilege of working with her for the past several months, during which she has developed a funding application for me on behalf of the Corymbosa Bush Reserve. Above all, I was impressed with Helen’s proactive approach, excellent writing ability, and knowledge of the grant application process.’

Rowan Stanley, Corymbosa Bush Reserve

‘With her simultaneous focus on details and the bigger picture, Helen masterfully edited Lebanon’s Voluntary National Review to ensure coherence, continuity and flow for an easy read of a complex document. She completed the task swiftly and independently with very little support. She communicated effectively on her progress. As an editor, Helen earns our highest recommendation.’ 

Celine Moyroud, Country Director, United Nations Development Programme Lebanon

‘We had to compile our annual report and needed an editor to proofread the document with a tight deadline. Helen did an amazing job and handed us the edited report back in one business day. She was lovely to work with and I highly recommend her.’
