Client logos

“Mary and I have worked together on numerous annual reports and other corporate publications over the years; I consider her to be crucial in ensuring we continue to publish premium-quality content for our stakeholders. Corporate documents leave an impression of our organisation on thousands of stakeholders and simple errors can cost us greatly or, at the very least, make us look foolish. She is a pleasure to work with and having Mary and her team’s expertise on hand provides us with the confidence we need, every time.”

Claire Smart, Communications Advisor, Zespri International Limited

“Mary’s proofreading service is a routine part of our document release process and I am impressed by the number of errors detected even after several approvals in-house. Every piece of our promotional material is passed through the vigilant eyes of Mary and her team; this ensures that highly accurate and consistent messages reach our customers.”

Fiona Cresswell, General Manager - Marketing Operations, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Limited

“I never cease to be amazed at what Mary and her team pick up that would often make or break the impact of my work. It’s such a relief to have that unbiased, fresh set of fastidious eyes to ensure accuracy. I can always be assured Mary will go the extra mile to offer suggestions that add value.”

Diana Parry, Creative Strategist and Storyteller, Brandwell Ltd
