Tender Writing

I will help you achieve your business goals through tendering.

I bring to the table more than three decades’ technical writing knowledge and experience and have enabled many clients to get over the tendering hurdle. Over the last few years, I have focused on SME bids to supply local government services in Queensland and New South Wales, particularly in association with Sydney-based Madrigal Communications.

Academic Editing 

I am an accomplished academic editor, with skills developed through my own Ph.D. and 25 years of research and scientific writing. The following reviews attest to those skills.  

“Richard edited my Ph.D. thesis and did a really wonderful job of it. He identified several places where I needed to explain a concept a bit more clearly. It looked absolutely fine to me – I have found it’s hard to critique my own work and having someone else look at it with that expert eye and invite you to think more deeply about it is an absolute blessing. Thank you, Richard. I appreciate your attention to detail.”

“Richard provided his services as an academic editor for my Ph.D. thesis as well as for the submission of a journal article. I highly recommend Richard, as he is a highly qualified individual with great experiences in science, academic writing, and the peer-review process.”

Publicity Campaigns for Independent Authors

I provided promotional services, including videography, for independent authors.  Most recently this has included Ken Fairweather, for his memoir, ‘Farewell White Man’ (through Jabiru Publishing), and Chris Shaw (‘Counterpunch’), and  Stephen Chong, (‘Bodies of Consequence’), both through The Erudite Pen.

As Gloria Webb, Managing Director of Jabiru Publishing recently wrote:

“Richard’s unique combination of skills, in addition to his ingenuity, innovation, and ability to think outside the box, have contributed to a great degree to the success of this best-selling book, which is now in its 3rd reprint. Richard is a pleasure to work with because of his collaborative nature, his calm, easy-going personality, his commitment to the task, and his highly-principled approach to the project at hand. I cannot commend Richard highly enough to anyone wishing to utilise his services.”

Science Communication

Public understanding of science has always been a challenge, but never more so than today. From writing media releases to organising workshops and conferences, I can get your research out there.
