MY EXPERIENCE

  • I have worked in most therapeutic areas and have a wealth of experience encompassing a wide range of medicines and medical devices. 
  • However, experience in a particular therapeutic area isn't everything. Each area mentioned here was new to me initially but each project was delivered successfully  because, to achieve the very best of results, other attributes are often more important than specific experience. 
  • Key attributes include being able to write well, learn fast, work collaboratively, and find intelligent solutions to challenging problems. Plus, there really is no substitute for 'going the extra mile' when needed. These are therefore the qualities that I am most proud to offer. They help ensure that outcomes not only meet but exceed expectations - even in new therapeutic areas. Please do take a look at What Others Say so you can see the sort of comments I receive from clients.
  • It can take years to hone writing skills, but is usually possible to get up to speed in a new therapeutic area within hours or days. So, if you have a writing need in an area not mentioned, please don't hesitate to Get in Touch. Far from being an issue, the thrill of getting up to speed in a new area often adds an additional layer of enthusiasm and determination to ensure a successful outcome no matter what.
