Experienced copywriters, copy editors & proofreaders
Established in 2000 by Rosemary Gillespie, the team at Proof Communications are unapologetically business-to-business writers, editors and proofreaders.
We’re driven by seeing our clients achieve more revenue from their written words.
We love the smiles on their faces when they win tenders, proposals and awards we’ve written for them. We’re delighted by the great results achieved by the articles, thought leadership, case studies, blogs, brochures and websites we craft for their businesses.
And we love to make sure our clients’ documents are error free with our editing and proofreading.
We’re here to save you time and stress by writing, editing and proofreading your business-winning sales, marketing and stakeholder communications.
With Proof Communications you’ll receive consistent, reliable, efficient, high quality writing and editing services delivered with integrity.
We work hard to understand our clients’ businesses and personalise our services to develop a solution to each situation rather than delivering off-the-shelf products.
We’re disciplined and dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for you and your written words.
We do what we say we will. Your calls will be returned promptly, and we’ll keep you up to date with progress, but won’t take up your valuable time.
Our clients have high expectations, deadlines and reputations to maintain. So do we. We take pride in presenting your content in a succinct and readable way, which often makes all the difference to the success of your business’ written materials.
UK-born Rosemary began her love affair with copywriting, editing and proofreading when working at the BBC in London. Yet it was a few years later, when she was working in the marketing department of a large European business, that Rosemary discovered her eye for detail that marks out her abilities as a marketing copywriter, editor and proofreader.
Rosemary’s copywriting career flourished, and led her around Europe, back to the UK, and eventually, to Australia. Here, she became a tender writer for a global consulting business and later for a top tier law firm before deciding to launch her own business in 2000.
Today, Rosemary works with services and professional businesses of all sizes – consulting on and writing winning award entries, tenders and proposals, as well as copywriting, editing and proofreading their B2B articles, brochures, pitches, marketing materials and annual reports.
She is also an occasional contributor to Marketing magazine and to The Sydney Morning Herald.
Glynis SkepperCopywriter, copy editor & proofreader
Glynis has always been a voracious reader, wielding her red pen at typos for as long as she can remember (and much to the annoyance of her school librarian).
Selling life insurance by cold calling wasn’t quite what she had in mind as the start of a stellar career, but it certainly was character building. From this unlikely beginning, Glynis spent many years working for AMP; her last role as presenter of Financial Services for Women seminars.
A move to the UK in 1997 gave Glynis the chance to establish her own training consultancy. After a number of years running her own business, she headed home to Australia. For the next eight years Glynis served as the National Customer Service Manager for a privately owned promotional apparel company in Brisbane, where she still lives.
Throughout this time, Glynis kept hold of her red pen, applying her eye for detail to her employers’ corporate communications. Still clutching that trusty instrument, Glynis joined Proof Communications in 2013 to support our B2B proofreading, copy writing and editing services for businesses across a wide range of industries.
Glynis also works with clients writing their winning tenders and proposals, case studies, articles and website copy. And she loves every minute of it.
Sue is an enthusiastic, motivated and articulate B2B writer with a strategic approach to business development opportunities.
She has 15 years’ experience in business development and communications. This includes five years in business development for Westpac and eight years as the public relations manager of professional services organisations operating at state, national and international level.
With qualifications in law, communications and governance, Sue brings you her ability to quickly synthesise the complexity of information, balancing efficient and courteous collaboration with multiple stakeholders and lateral thinking around key concepts.
Along with her strong writing skills that present information clearly and powerfully and her focus and ability to work under pressure to meet strict deadlines, Sue is an asset to the team.
Sally LangfordCopywriter, copy editor & proofreader
Sally is a versatile copywriter, copy editor, content strategist and digital marketer with an academic background in anthropology. She writes and delivers engaging content for diverse purposes and audiences, including bids and tenders, white papers, business reports, marketing collateral, digital content, blog posts, e-newsletters and social media.
Sally’s love affair with the written word began as a child. Much of her childhood was spent churning out stories clearly inspired by the many Roald Dahl novels she devoured at the time. In her early twenties she secured an internship with Elle Magazine UK’s features department, where she gained experience sourcing, writing, and shaping editorial content.
After a short stint working with theatre production companies in London and touring the world with a South African musical, she began specialising in content creation and strategy.
Since becoming part of the Proof Communications’ team in 2014, Sally has helped clients ranging in size from a global advisory firm to a start-up by writing, editing and proofreading a range of content, from complex tenders involving numerous stakeholders to award nominations, digital magazines and company brochures.
