Why You Should Hire Me

Are you looking for an experienced, passionate and performance-driven wordsmith and communications specialist? You’ve come to The Write Place. I started this one-woman communications consultancy, based in the Overberg, South Africa, because I saw a gap in the market for direct, one-on-one PR that focuses on results, not hype. So why hire me and not one of the other guys?


The Write Place offers three interlinking services:


Polished written material is key to creating a professional image. I will craft your media releases and other media collateral. I’ll ensure your online content is SEO-friendly. I can also craft any corporate collateral and assist with book-writing.


I will work closely with you to develop a targeted PR and Media Relations Plan with clear outcomes and timelines that meet your business objectives and goals. The proof of the pudding is in the eating – or in this case, the publicity!


Make sure that all your business correspondence – be it a magazine advertorial to be read by thousands, or an internal newsletter – is error-free and of the highest quality. Don’t let mistakes get in the way of your message.


This is a selection of my published feature articles. I’ve also included some of the publicity I’ve secured for clients. To read, just click.


I have known Leigh-Anne for some two years in her position as my communications assistant for Southern Africa. Leigh-Anne is an extremely hard-working person who is always striving for the very best, be it in her excellent photography or her written output for magazines, newsletters and the website. It is no surprise that she has been asked to work on several assignments by our Support Offices overseas. During her entire stay with World Vision, I always found Leigh-Anne to be enthusiastic, dedicated and eager to learn. She has an outgoing personality and has proven her ability to succeed. Robert Michel, Communications Director, Southern Africa, World Vision International.

Leigh-Anne has proved herself to be very competent in her professional conduct and abilities as a teacher of ESL students. Her interaction and rapport is very effective, and her materials and activities of a high quality. She shows a great deal of professionalism, commitment, enthusiasm and dedication in all tasks assigned to her. She takes great pride in her work, and this is demonstrated by the students’ achievements in her class. Leigh-Anne is a good team player and is always cooperative and flexible. She follows instructions very well. I genuinely recommend Leigh-Anne. Elyse Conlon, Head of EP, Darasamuth School, Phuket, Thailand.

[Please confirm her job functions] Leigh-Anne was responsible for communications with all African members of the Earth Day Network in 2001, and EDN’s key person on the ground in the lead-up to the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. [Please comment on her work performance] Reliable, very enthusiastic, and committed. Very capable. Very good team player. [Any achievements?] Excellent writer, in particular. I highly recommend her to you. Serryn Janson, Director (Worldwide Program), Earth Day Network.
