I’ve helped many different clients

Big brands, start-ups, SMEs, not-for-profits, government teams and others that defy a category. Here are some of their colourful logos.

I’ve been a web content specialist for 21 years

Eight years riding the dot-com rollercoaster

In the late 90s, I helped launch and manage e-commerce trailblazers, lastminute.com and travel.com.au.

As head of Marketing & Content:

  • my email newsletters were read by over half a million subscribers
  • we recorded Australia’s 1st million dollar e-commerce sales day
  • I spoke at and chaired Australian and international e-commerce conferences
  • I learnt from thousands of web users what they want online.

13 years running my own show

  • Sydney-based Get There Content Services (formerly Get There Writing Services).
  • Specialising in digital content writing, training and consulting.
  • Located in sunny Manly – come and have a coffee, a beer or a swim!

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 5000 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

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

Even after 21 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

And the incredible things they can do:

  • Solve problems.
  • Build trust.
  • Inspire.
  • Change.
  • Woo.
  • Rank.
  • Sell (like hell).
  • Excite.
  • Entertain.
  • Captivate.
  • Titillate.
  • Persuade.
  • Move.
  • Help.

I started Get There to help people and organisations use the power of words to share their brilliant ideas, big dreams and inspiring causes with the world.

It would be a pleasure to have a chat about the things I can help you achieve with the right words too.

Think we might work well together?
