After a long career in customer service management, Glynis altered course to begin work with Proof Communications in 2013.
She is one of those people for whom typos, grammar mistakes and style inconsistencies simply leap off the page. This skill, combined with her meticulous attention to detail, is what makes Glynis an exceptionally thorough editor and proof reader.
Glynis’ first step in the world of work was selling life insurance by cold calling. From this unlikely beginning, Glynis spent many years working for AMP; her last role as the presenter of Financial Services for Women seminars.
A move to the UK 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. Throughout this time, Glynis applied her eye for detail to her employer’s corporate communications.
With her enthusiasm, care and commitment, Glynis brings our clients her ability to greatly improve the quality and readability of their documents, making them the best they can be.
Tender Writers is powered by Proof Communications, established by Rosemary Gillespie in 2000. Rosemary began her copywriting, editing and proofreading career working at the BBC in London, before moving to a large global Swiss-based business. It was here that Rosemary discovered her eye for detail that marks out her skills as a superior tender writer, editor and proofreader.
On moving to Australia, Rosemary’s copywriting career continued to flourish. She became a tender writer for global consultancy KPMG and later for top tier law firm Allens Linklaters, before launching Proof Communications.
Since 2000, Rosemary has led Proof Communications’ tender writing success for hundreds of companies. Rosemary has worked on literally hundreds of tenders to government, private companies and listed companies. She has seen every tender/bid scenario and type of response.
