Some of my clients and colleagues have been kind enough to write testimonials, reflecting on the work we have done together.

You can read a selection of them below.

Ruth wrote a series of blog stories on the Huon Valley for our website. She was able to easily research and produce content to highlight Huon Valley places and experiences with the target reader in mind. We would certainly recommend Ruth and work with her again.

Working with Ruth Dawkins was easy and enjoyable. Ruth helped me define my service with a lot more clarity and precision than I could have done on my own. Ruth was open and flexible to the changes I wanted to make and very efficient. I highly recommend Ruth’s expertise in copywriting and editing. Thanks Ruth!

Recently Ruth wrote some content for brochures and our new website. She was so easy to talk to and really quickly developed understanding of what we needed and had it back to us in no time. We are delighted with the results.

I had a selection criteria document I was wishing to submit but I knew the wording for the level of the position I was applying for needed work. Ruth was very professional in her approach and had a great understanding of what was required. She successfully upgraded my selection criteria to the level the position required. Thank you so much for your assistance.

Ruth is a great writer and editor, who adds real value to a small organisation.

Chrissie Trousselot, Executive Director

Antarctic Science Foundation

Ruth provided excellent writing support to a large number of stakeholders in the development of a series of case studies describing the impact of the University’s research. Ruth handled this complex exercise superbly. She had a thorough understanding of the highly detailed requirements of the project and was able to distil, communicate and apply this information effectively. She exceeded all expectations in terms of the quality of her work, and worked tirelessly and consultatively with our stakeholders to meet a series of tight deadlines. She provided regular updates to management, was proactive in seeking solutions to problems as they arose, and brought a great sense of positivity to the task. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and succeeded in developing positive relationships with all stakeholders including academics from a range of disciplines, (health and medicine, physics, chemistry, mathematics, etc.). Ruth was especially skilled in translating complex science into engaging content suitable for a general audience. I would not hesitate to recommend Ruth to any University, Institute, Research Group or Researcher looking to appoint a writing professional.

Dr Venetia Joscelyne, Senior Project Manager (ERA and EI)

University of Tasmania

Ruth took a very complex change program, a large volume of content and market research outcomes and developed a clear and succinct suite of communications carefully tailored to the various audience requirements. Ruth worked with a great deal of flexibility and efficiency to meet a series of short deadlines with engagement across a range of stakeholders. Her warmth and communication skills made a difficult exercise straightforward.

Ruth Groom, Project Implementation Manager, Transformation Program

University of Tasmania

I have had the great pleasure to be on the receiving end of Ruth’s skilled communications and, in my role as literary journalist have been delighted at her responsiveness as well as her proactive approach to sharing information. She changed the face of the Tasmanian Writers’ Centre, introducing regular updates, knowledge sharing and interviews with writers. Her introduction of competitions and Books of the Month displayed an active engagement with the sector. Her clear and timely media releases, alongside personalised drip feeds of news suggested to me a true engagement and awareness of the sector.
