Our work ethics reflects the passion we bring - whatever it takes to get the job done. We are not '9-5' consultants and do not believe in clocking in and clocking out. As professionals, we believe in the substance of corporate communications and will work with you to position you in the best way possible.
Quality - We value quality over quantity. We seek to provide quality corporate communications that delivers real value to clients and their stakeholders.
Commitment - We work with clients who are as serious about their business as we are and can commit to their company's corporate communications needs.
Integrity and Ethics - We value the integrity and sincerity of our work above the churn rate of projects. We hold ethical values dear and will never divulge your confidential business information to others. Where necessary, we also challenge our clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions.
Excellence - We seek to excel in all that we do for our clients and encourage our clients to challenge us in new and dynamic ways.

Fran Hall - during her time as Commercial Director of Global Medical Solutions
"Our business engaged Annie to assist in the preparation of a tender for government. The RFP required very detailed, accurate information. The deadline for submissions was short and included the Christmas holiday period. She was always available and delivered what she said she would on time. Annie provided us with a strong understanding of what was required and the best way to structure our responses. The thing I enjoyed most about working with her was her calm nature and her ability to gently but firmly challenge our thinking and objectively analyze the detail. I highly recommend the work of Writer's Block."
