‘As Managing Director for the Soros Economic Development Fund, I needed a very experienced editor to improve the quality of our investment presentations. We were looking for someone who would work closely and sympathetically with our senior management and team of analysts to critique and strengthen our narrative approach. Tim Penn was very flexible. He responded quickly and effectively to our needs and was able to improve and develop what we gave him and return the finished presentations to very tight deadlines.’

‘It was commented by our directors and notably our CEO that they’ve seen a marked improvement in the written quality of our recent publications and the speed of the sign-off process (and, therefore, productivity) has increased too. They recognised that this has been due in large part to having Writing Penn support this area, so my initial objectives of engaging with you have been a big success so far.’

‘Our work with Tim at Writing Penn aimed to deliver a Wikipedia-style Android application for a UK defence project. The nature of the application meant we required concise, readable text for a casual but technically informed reader.

Tim quickly provided us with an accurate quotation and then managed to accommodate continued changes throughout whilst still meeting the tight deadlines we required. The copy-edited text we received back was shorter, more engaging and simpler to read without any loss of key information. Using Writing Penn made achieving our objectives considerably easier and I will be using them again.’

Robert Marshall, Baldesan Research Ltd


‘We have recently utilised the services of Writing Penn for a corporate style story book. Tim Penn was a joy to work with and surprisingly got to grips with our requirement very quickly. The results have been exceptional and we are now looking to place further work with Tim and his team who went above and beyond in order to bring this project to a very successful conclusion.’

‘The commissioning support unit needed several dozen complex case studies written to showcase a range of successful projects and best practices, demonstrating the strength of our services to be used to support our marketing and new business. The case studies covered the gamut of institutional healthcare activity from evidence-based research projects aimed at improving clinical outcomes to complex business IT projects. Eirlys and the Writing Penn team delivered high impact documents to tight deadlines with minimal briefing, showing clear understanding of both the business and clinical imperative behind each case. This saved us a great deal of management time and provided a cost-effective, value-added outcome.’

‘I initially asked Eirlys to use some of our training materials to produce a concise and readable fact sheet. Then, at short notice, I needed to turn that content into a script for a short animation about the Care Act. Eirlys was great, not only with the words but also suggesting ideas for the visuals and style as well.’

‘Opal Transfer is a money transfer business serving expatriate residents and businesses needing to move money cost-effectively from the UK to their home territory. We were updating our multi-lingual web portal and wanted the English-language site thoroughly edited to ensure it was professional and accurate and used English idioms that would be accessible to non-native English speakers. The Writing Penn team quickly went to work to produce a very thorough document of advised revisions at a very reasonable price. It was a pleasure working with them and they continued to support us with advice after the commissioned work was completed.’

‘Eirlys was a pleasure to work with on the cake shoot. Incredibly helpful, will do ANY task you throw at her. Hope to work with her again soon.’

‘Eirlys did some fantastic proofreading for the content I wrote for two NHS clinical commissioning groups. It was a huge job and required a really dedicated, detailed approach – working to tight and anti-social deadlines (which she did with good grace). I would not hesitate in recommending Eirlys to others. She was extremely reliable and polished up the job for me to a really high standard.’

‘Eirlys is a pleasure to work with, in an editorial capacity or any other. She sees exactly what needs doing and gets on with it in an efficient, intelligent and creative manner. She is also a lot of fun!’
