Need a business writer to help you with
assembling a complex technical proposal?
telling your brand story?
writing a corporate social responsibility 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 times – the times when you need your communications to be technical, formal and authoritative … but also for the times when you need them to be more friendly, informal and engaging.
If these sound like two polar opposite styles to you, you’re right. I thrive on working in both the technical and creative spheres – though not necessarily at the same time! Strangely enough, I find these skills to be complementary: my storytelling skills help to add colour and interest to reports and proposals I prepare, while my report and technical writing skills help lend credibility to my content marketing writing.
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: energy, environment (corporate social responsibility), financial services, financial technology (fintech), health care, high tech, careers and entrepreneurship.
My clients include:
- private and public sector organizations
- communications and custom publications firms
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!
