Words from customers
Dawn Corbett, head of corporate policy, Glasgow City Council
Shirley produces accurate copy in plain English. She's an excellent communicator and a reliable contractor.
Alan Sinclair, CBE, visiting fellow, The Work Foundation
Shirley helped to turn my draft of my provocation paper into a much clearer and more readable report. What I found gratifying is that in both the paper and associated newspaper articles, the finished pieces were authentic to my line of argument and voice.
Fiona Sandford, chief executive, Visibility
Shirley has worked with us for a few years to write our award winning annual reports. She takes time to listen and find out about our work. This has resulted in the production of a promotional tool which conveys Visibility's ethos and values whilst describing what we actually do to donors, service users and partners.
Margaret Taylor, chief executive, Glasgow Homelessness Network
Shirley offers a service which does exactly what it says on the tin! Whether publicity material or more detailed reports, she provides refreshingly clear, accessible, jargon-free language which exactly matches the audience's requirements. And she works flexibly, meeting timescales and deadlines every time. Highly satisfactory, and recommended!
Lily Greenan, manager, Scottish Women’s Aid
I am impressed by Shirley's skill and ability to take the rawest, thinnest, sketchiest material and turn it into a document that informs, educates and enlightens. Not only that, but she ALWAYS knows where to put the apostrophe!
Norma Hurley, director, Blake Stevenson
Shirley is an excellent researcher, writer and editor. We know that if we contract with Shirley we will always be sure of high quality, thorough, and intelligent work delivered on time and in a professional and friendly manner.
Lesley Reid, senior health promotion specialist, NHS Lothian
Shirley draws out information from public service users, frontline staff, managers and policy makers. She picks up and crystallises what is important.
Professor Jonathan Brown, founder chair and past president, NAEGA
For more than ten years, Shirley's work has been thorough, thoughtful and imaginative allowing our small voluntary organisation to produce attractive work of professional quality.
The Graphics Company, a workers' co-operative
Shirley's a great person to work with. She comes up with the goods as briefed, on time and at a very reasonable price. She's a good sounding board too. We've been working with Shirley for nearly 20 years now so we should know!
