“When all else fails, Simon will come to the rescue. Our website lacked that edge we were all looking for and other copywriters just couldn’t create what he so easily performed. Our site not only has that extra spark we were looking for, but a much more professional touch. We will never go anywhere else.”
Brad Aldcroft, Redspot Car Rentals

“I commissioned Simon to run customised website writing training for ANSTO’s website contributors. Most of our writers had academic backgrounds so it was important for them to understand the difference between writing for academia and writing for the web. Simon used meaningful research to demonstrate how audiences access information online and gave excellent examples of best practice. He was skilled at handling challenging questions and delivered the training in a fun and supportive environment that left the group feeling confident and inspired about writing their web content.”   Ellice Mol, Online Content Editor, ANSTO

“The customised web writing workshop with SEO proved invaluable. Our staff now produces copy and content that drives more business through our client’s websites and newsletters. Simon is a friendly, approachable presenter with a profound knowledge of web writing and a good sense of humour. The course is not only practical and empowering, it’s also great fun!”   
Diana Forrester, General Manager, Professional Public Relations

“Simon’s skillfully delivered a highly engaging web writing session that was tailored, practical, content rich and very useful. Our team agreed that his tips and advice for online content writing will go a long way in improving our internal and external communications. He did many hours of pre-work to ensure our workshop was targeted to our business and style guidelines – which ultimately contributed to the success of the day. We highly recommend his training if you would like to add value and quality to your online presence (internal or external).”
Chris Archer – Suncorp

“Simon delivered a customised web writing course to AMA staff with varying online writing ability.  He greatly helped our team improve their understanding of the very different way people read on the web and showed us through theory, research and practical exercises how to best communicate with our many audiences online. All participants received a comprehensive workbook tailored specifically for the AMA, which is now an excellent reference tool. He delivered this course with clarity and professionalism.  I highly recommend Simon to any private or public organisation looking to train their staff in how to write for the web.

Training session participants

“I thought the course was fantastic!! I learned how to be a lot more conscious of the way I write copy for the web – and how it should also be displayed. It was fascinating to learn how sophisticated Google is and how little changes can mean a world of difference. The exercises illustrating good and bad things about our content served as excellent practical examples. In fact – I am using the handbook right now to help me write up some copy for a new page on our website!! Extremely valuable.”

“I now have a far stronger understanding of how to write for the web. I especially loved critiquing our own webpages and look forward to using what I’ve learnt to write the new website. I really don’t think I could improve the course. It’s the best training session I’ve been to in a long time.”

“I really did enjoy Simon’s class. I am 100% self-taught from learning on-line, reading and my own experiences, so it was great to have someone tell me in simple terms WITH EXAMPLES what works, what doesn’t, and why. And there are things about web content I have been trying to get a handle on for ages and just found it too hard. He got that sorted out for me in my own head within ten minutes.”

“I have read about 25 books on website development and web writing. Simon provided a concise summary of all the useful information as well as a huge amount of tips and advice that I had never heard before. An incredibly useful course.”

“The practical comparisons with competitor’s websites were great. The way Simon constructively critiqued several of our web and social pages and had us apply his techniques to re-writing those pages was enormously beneficial.”

“Absolutely fantastic! Chock full of useful information – the handbook will be a lifesaver when I’m back at work and likely to have forgotten some important bits.”

“Clear, interesting, relevant content. Great examples to demonstrate ideas. Very engaging presentation; nice balance of input and collaboration. Love the fact that we have our manual and lots of useful links and sites. Met everyone’s needs.”

“The materials and learning activities were extremely interesting. I was staggered at the amount of web writing experience and knowledge Simon provided.”

“I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the fantastic job you did the other day. We were all really impressed and I think it will make a huge difference for us moving forward with our new websites. If you ever need a recommendation I would be more than happy to sing your praises!”

“Simon was a really great tutor, and kept us engaged throughout with lots of good examples of the concepts, and exercises to help us put them into practice. He delivered the course in a very interesting, useful and fun manner.”

“Simon delivered the course excellently. Real-life examples and robust discussion broke the course material into digestible segments. I have immediate takeaways to apply to my work and broader ideas to play around with.”

“Simon is a web content expert. His session on Web writing with SEO was a highly interactive and great learning experience. He made the most complex terms and ideas easy to understand and implement in my role. I would definitely recommend the course to writers and marketing teams. “

“I really enjoyed the practical learning and advice Simon provided. The web copywriting and SEO examples were relevant and hugely valuable. We’ve been outsourcing SEO and copy consultation, but now I feel confident enough to audit these myself. “

“Simon knows his stuff! I loved the exercises and the way he used so many examples from our own website and competitor sites. This was a really fun session. “

“I loved the questions from Simon to really challenge what we do and why. It will definitely help us to write better and more consistent comms… now the hard work begins! Thank you very much Simon, for a thoughtful, well organised and executed training program 🙂 “

“Simon was fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. Using our materials as examples and in team activities throughout the day made the learning experience fun. “

“I really enjoyed the tailored content. It was useful to get the bigger picture, but even better to know how to tailor it specifically to us. I also really enjoyed learning how people read digital content and found that super interesting. The activities were a great way to put everything he was saying into practice. “           

“I thought the course was fantastic! The exercises illustrating good and bad things about our content served as excellent practical examples. In fact – I am using the handbook right now to help me write some copy for a new page on our website. Extremely valuable.”
