A Standing Ovation
I love writing speeches so much that my regular clients know that they can always depend on me to collaborate with them to craft memorable presentations. It’s all about the speaker performing at his or her best!
Seafood restaurant group increases its catch
How can a restaurant that doesn’t accept reservations capture customer information, increase a customer’s spend and encourage repeat business? My solution was an integrated in-restaurant and web campaign that included a free newspaper that requested customer’s emails. See a sample of the newspaper.
En français? A commission from Le Monde
When Brooks Brothers, the swanky American haberdasher, opened its first store in France, Le Monde asked me to write a feature explaining le style américain. For a look at the article….
Every time I file an informative review for the dailybeast.com about an exciting wine tasting, or create fresh online content for a global marketer of luxury products, write a speech or post a new entry on my blog, I love to tell a great story and share them with others.
Recent journalism, editorial consulting and speech writing projects include work for Frederick Wildman and Sons, Ltd., Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, and Wine Enthusiast magazine.
Whether my client is an upscale, 30-restaurant group that wants to increase customer traffic via a clever social media campaign, or a CEO of a Fortune 500 company in need of help crafting a keynote speech for a vitally important conference, or the owner of a proud, family-owned business who wants a warm corporate history produced from scratch to mark its centenary, well, you get the idea.
My name is David Ross and I am a writer who specializes in telling a really good story; I am a quick study and am able to turn my pen to pretty much anything. And I am very passionate about the quality of all my work.
Perhaps the major difference between me and other writers is that I started my career in marketing and then switched to journalism before launching my own consultancy.
A career path that, without wishing to sound immodest, gives me a number of advantages.
I am used to generating and executing viable and effective ideas.
I am able to identify and communicate your core messages in a way that will engage your target audience.
And, although I have contributed to dozens of consumer and trade publications, I understand commercial imperatives.
If you are looking for a writer with marketing expertise, or a marketing expert who can write, I would welcome an opportunity to quote for your project.
