It’s rare to find a copywriter who is both results and customer-driven. Anna is a dedicated, passionate, smart and talented writer. If you want your website to speak to your customers and convert them you should hire her yesterday.

The copy you wrote for the About Us page is bang on, I love what you’ve created for us. Very professional and gets the point across in a concise way.
— James Cooke, CEO, Realty Matchmaker Ltd.
I’m 100% satisfied with Anna’s job. I had some unpleasant experience with contractors a long ago and since then I had lived with the rule: if you want some work done well, do it yourself. I’ve reconsidered this motto. You only need to find the right person to delegate. If I ever need similar work to be done I’ll definitely invite Anna to help me with it.

Anna is an accomplished professional who ensures she is in a position to constructively challenge and connect with her clients. She follows through in a timely manner. Her honesty and integrity is evident and as a result she is able to become a trusted advisor and consensus builder.
Anna is an excellent listener and communicator. She instills belief and confidence in the success of an undertaking, with stakeholders and within the group she is working with. She offers information that her clients do not have and ultimately she nurtures collaboration and initiative that helps them develop solutions that will work for them and that will work for their operations.
If you are looking for results, I strongly recommend Anna.

“Anna is extremely talented and innovative. She was instrumental in helping me develop and launch key elements of a change management strategy for a new branch in government. She is a pleasure to work with and her facilitation skills are superb.”
— Lisa Sherin, Director, Treasury Board Secretariat
Industry, and the professionals operating within it, are prone to laud the competencies of peers and colleagues with the fashionable tags of present day: creative, innovative, strategic. The ubiquity of these labels ought to make most reconsider the significance of any such description for any one individual — in any field.

Rather than merely exploit those tags on Anna, I’d invite business leaders to experience her brilliance in person.

The impact of Anna’s genius as a facilitator and planner is evident upon introduction. As the lead on the annual talent management retreat for senior executives in one of Ontario’s largest ministries, Anna introduced approaches, concepts and objectives that helped to establish the foundation for what would soon become a comprehensive and dependable succession management model for our organization. And the design of the retreat was only the start. Anna’s delivery was masterful, utilizing a style and practice that enabled a diverse audience to remain fully engaged while never abandoning focus on the primary objectives for the retreat.

Confident, professional and inviting, Anna combines her depth of experience and knowledge with an approach that will steer you in a direction you wouldn’t have considered, with a delivery you couldn’t have conceived, and to outcomes you would have never achieved on your own.
— Jamie Bruno, Director of Human Resources, North York General Hospital (and former Manager, Strategic Business Unit, Ministry of Government Services)
“Anna worked with me to plan a full day meeting for a large group of executives. It was a difficult group and there were some challenges, but Anna maintained a calm professionalism and guided us through our program flawlessly. I was extremely impressed!....... and after 20 plus years in Internal Audit, I’m not easily impressed.”
— David Horie, Director, Internal Audit at Province of Ontario
I know Anna to be an exceptional management consultant and organizational change leader. At the Project Management Centre of Excellence, she established a reputation as a trusted advisor and respected consultant to senior executives leading complex transformation initiatives. Her work involved planning and implementation of large scale projects that included elements of organizational restructuring, project management, people and change management, and employee engagement. Anna is also an expert facilitator specializing in strategic planning and organizational design. She takes a results oriented approach in all aspects of her work.
— Peter Hoy, Director, Organizational Renewal, Ministry of Children and Youth Services, Ministry of Community and Social Services
“I had the pleasure of working on an amalgamation project with Anna. She was brought in to facilitate discussions between three boards on the possibility of an amalgamation. She designed and facilitated a session to reach consensus on how the three agencies would work together to rectify sustainability issues. In the course of two days, she led talks that brought people from a point of resistance, and confusion, to a clear decision on the future amalgamation.

Approximately 4 months later Anna led a two-day session for the Ministry of Children and Youth Services outlining how the amalgamation would be managed.

Anna provided exceptional leadership and skill in what was a complex and difficult change management exercise. It was incredibly memorable - as the stakes were high, the people were passionate, and it was quite challenging for Anna as a facilitator to get buy-in on even discussing the possibility of amalgamation, at first. I am happy to endorse Anna and the skills and professionalism she brings.”
— David Zuccato, Owner/Chief Executive, Zuccato and Associates, former Assistant Deputy Minister of Operations, Ministry of Community and Social Services
