Editor, journalist, copywriter, presenter
As an editor, journalist, copywriter and radio broadcaster, I have been actively involved with researching, writing and editing news and magazine articles for more than 20 years. Producing news programmes for the South African Broadcasting Corporation and other national and local radio stations has honed my writing, reporting and presentation skills. I have gathered this experience on two different continents and am as much at home in English as in Dutch. Born in the Netherlands, I completed my primary, secondary and academic education in English.
Copywriting for professional magazines, company newsletters, annual reports, advertisements, website content, brochures, blogs, business correspondence and speeches.
After a thorough briefing, the text is written to suit the client’s specific needs and adapted to reach a particular readership, target audience or market sector. Your media releases and professional articles are written by an experienced journalist.
