The following is a selection of completed copywriting and editing projects that are available online. Past work that is not available online includes job descriptions, articles, mailers, newsletters and other marketing texts.

Copywriting

International Organisation for Migration (IOM): I interviewed twelve people who had temporarily returned to their homelands with the help of IOM. Their purpose was to carry out various developmental projects, from beekeeping to providing medical care. The interviews were then crafted into short first-person articles. You can download the publication here:

Migration and Development: Migrant Stories

Please note that proofreading was conducted by another organisation.

Assistance Software (now Unit4): Assistance Software asked me to interview a number of their clients for case studies they could place on their site.

I wrote the case studies for: Advent One, Bruisten AEC, CPS, Clients First, Customer Dynamics, De Jong en Partners, Edgewater Fullscope (formerly Zero2Ten), Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership, Konstruktieburo Snetselaar, Ledgeview, Sikich (formerly Altico Advisors), and Wavin.

Tommy Hilfiger: Tommy Hilfiger in the Netherlands was running a series of exclusive promotions for newsletter subscribers. I was asked to write the heading and subheading accompanying each image. The heading served a double purpose as the subject line of each email. I was also asked to proofread other promotional material.
