Who I’ve worked with (a sample)

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 first $1 million e-commerce sales day
  • I spoke at and chaired Australian and international e-commerce conferences
  • I learnt firsthand 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).
  • Located in sunny Manly.
  • Specialising in digital content writing, training and consulting.

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, everything from print and scripts to John Doe dating profiles for a royal (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 best part of my job is getting to help people gain the skills and confidence to write in ways they could only imagine.

I relish every opportunity to:

● train not-for-profit, business and government teams
● provide one-to-one coaching 
● consult to businesses
● 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.

And 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?
