Content Writing Trainer + Copywriter

I help people in business (and govt) turn ideas into words that captivate, connect and convert.

Websites catch eyes. But your words win hearts, minds and business.

Every time you sell a product, service or cause online, it’s your words that connect you with people.

The right words tell your audience that you hear and understand them.

That you’re the firetruck to their burning problem.

That they should trust in, do business with and rave about you.

How do you find those magic words?

Put me to work in your content kitchen.

For 23 years I’ve been a content writing trainer, private copywriting coach and digital copywriter.

Along the way, I’ve helped all kinds of people, brands, government agencies and non-profits:

  • Attract and convert millions in business
  • Save and enhance tens of thousands of lives
  • Enjoy and excel at writing their own content and copy.

So, on that note, let’s talk about…

For 23 years I’ve been a web writing trainer, private coach and copywriter.

Along the way, I’ve helped people, brands, government agencies and non-profits:

  • Attract and convert millions in business
  • Save and enhance thousands of lives
  • Excel at writing their own content and copy.

But let’s talk about…

What I can do for you

If your sales copy sounds vanilla, clichéd or used car salesy, I can help.

If you’re struggling to convey ideas in hang-on-every-word ways, I can help.

If you want to open people’s hearts and wallets for an amazing cause, I can help.

In other words, if you’re looking for words that captivate, connect and convert, we should talk.

You can learn with me.
Or I can write for you.

If you’d love to create your own pro-level content, I offer group writing training and private coaching.

If you want someone else to turn your ideas into irresistible copy, I’ll go grab my Mad Men hat.

Be it teaching or copywriting, I’ll bring to your project everything I’ve learned:

  • writing for 100s of clients, from SME to icons like Microsoft, Canva + PayPal
  • helping 14000+ people become skilled, confident, non-procrastinating writers
  • sweating over web words for 47000+ hours (shout out to my chiropractor)

And here’s a unique bonus. Hemingway is my middle name. Yes, seriously.

It was passed down from my grandpa (Papa Jack, not Papa Ernie).

So, you even get to brag that Hemingway penned your copy or taught you the tricks of the writing trade.

And, be completely Ernest about it.

I’ve carefully scribed millions of professional web words

I’ve carefully scribed millions of professional web words

Web and SEO copy, blogs, sales funnels, EDMs, whitepapers, ads, scripts, social posts – you name it, I’ve written it for:

● SMEs and corporates
● global giants such as Microsoft, PayPal, J&J, Cochlear, Canva, ING and Jaguar
● do-greaters such as Black Dog Institute, MS Australia, Cancer Council and the Garvan Institute
● government departments
● ad, digital and SEO agencies.

Plus, print copy and everything from audio tours to royal online dating profiles (shh, I’ll never tell who!).

I’ve also penned eBooks and books for publishers, companies and some truly inspiring individuals.

I love teaching people how to DIY

The most rewarding part of my job is helping people gain the skills and confidence to write in ways they could only imagine.

Over the past decade, I’ve taught more than 14,000 people better ways to connect with their audiences through words.

I relish every opportunity to:

● train not-for-profit, business and government teams
● provide one-to-one coaching
● consult to organisations
● teach at Sydney University CCE
● run courses at General Assembly
● mentor gifted kids in remote areas through Aurora College.

It’s an amazing feeling that often leaves me…lost for words.

I never stop learning

I never stop learning

In the online world, it’s crucial to discover, test and understand with what’s working now and what’s coming next.

Even after 23 years, I learn something exciting every day – be it through courses, events, client projects and challenges, students, peers or devouring the latest industry news. A few of my content related certifications include:

I’m in awe of the power of words
