• Technical Proposal Writing

Need a business writer to help you

  • tell your brand story?

  • assemble a complex technical proposal?

  • write or edit a report?

Then you’ve come to the right place. My name is Anne Papmehl and I’m a freelance business writer based in London, Ontario, Canada. Through my company, Ecostrat Communications, I help clients with all of the above business communications services and more.

Simply put, I’m a writer who can write for the timesthe times when you need your communications to be friendly, informal and engaging, but also for the times when you need them to be more technical, formal and authoritative.

If these sound like two polar opposite styles to you, you’re right. I thrive on working in both the creative and technical – though not necessarily at the same time! Strangely enough, I find these skills to be complementary: my report, technical writing and journalism skills help lend credibility to my content marketing writing, while my storytelling skills help to add colour and interest to reports and proposals I prepare.

I write in diverse media and formats – print, digital, newspaper, magazine, article, blog, brochure, report and technical proposal. As for topics, I can write about virtually anything, but here are the ones I write on most frequently: finance (including fintech), health care, technology, careers, entrepreneurship, retail innovation and the environment.

My clients include:

  • private and public sector organizations
  • communications and custom publications agencies
  • consultancies
  • non-profits
ecostrat ... the name

People often ask me about my company name. "Eco" refers to both "economy" and "ecology". This reflects
my personal belief that a prosperous economy and healthy, sustainable ecological systems go hand in hand - 
as opposed to one at the expense of the other. The "strat" stands for strategic, as in aligning with the strategic
communications goals of my clients. Or to put it in a more linear way:

eco + strat + COMMUNICATIONS = ecostrat COMMUNICATIONS

I originally established my business as a niche area - specializing in environmental sustainability and corporate
social responsibility communications - something I still do. But over the years I've developed a broader suite of 
communications skills and services that allow me to be both a generalist and a specialist - if that makes any 
sense!
