Service Description

I believe that your document is a the first look that you present and must accurately reflect your knowledge, your personality, your voice, and your style. I am committed to working with you to ensure that every piece says exactly what you are trying to convey.

I am a fundraising professional and a recovering lobbyist and expatriate. I have a wide range of experiences, having lived in Washington, DC, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Europe, and have worked in marketing for both large and one-person companies. I bring this background and experience to every job that I do.

My partner is a banking professional with over two decades in the credit card, credit union, risk management, collections, mortgage lending and business lending areas. He has written business plans for his on internet-based company, as well as for others for who he consults. In his career he has hire (and fired) his share of employees, so his ability to eye what works on a resume and collateral material is keen.

Together, the partners of the Clyde Group can meet your business planning, writing and editing needs quickly and professionally.

I can assist you with:
- Copyediting
- Proofreading
- Writing (& rewrites)/copywriting
- Developing content
- Researching
- Page layout
- Transcribing
- Overall project management

I can help you create, edit, or lay out:
- Newsletters
- Brochures

- Press releases, press kits
- Business reports, marketing plans,...
