Precision in verbal engineering
"Henry is meticulous in the research and factual background to his stories. His writing both informs and entertains. This is a particularly valuable talent since the surveys often deal with technical matters which he proves adept at demystifying and making accessible to the ordinary reader."
Bob Feit, Editor/Special Sections, Wall Street Journal
"FinanceWriter has a knack for making the complex simple. They challenged us to articulate with clarity the essence of the stories we wanted to tell whether it be to investors, academics, government stakeholders or employees. FinanceWriter provided services including editorial and writing for our annual report and annual review, external stakeholder publication, company factsheets and website, technical reports and marketing brochures. I was truly impressed with the quality, not just of the writing, but the keen sense for how messaging should be communicated."
Simone Niven - Head of Corporate Communications, Rio Tinto plc.
"Henry has an excellent knowledge of banking and capital markets. He has used this to good effect in covering a wide range of financial issues for The Banker. He writes accurately and is someone whom we could depend on for coverage of, often complex, issues in a readily accessible language.
His experience has been a great asset to the magazine and I have no hesitation in recommending him."
Stephen Timewell - Editor, The Banker
"Henry's primary responsibility was for the style, content and production of a stable of financial newsletters that are produced to tight deadlines. During his tenure there was a manifest improvement in the style and content of the newsletters.
Henry's innovative and creative ideas made a significant contribution to FSP's other activities including product development, marketing and staging of financial conferences."
David Gibson - Managing Director, Fleet Street Publications
"Working to the deadline of the release of our annual results, the project involved interviewing our Chief Executive Officer, preparing his letter to shareholders, editing and merging reports and information from our various international divisions.
From these multiple sources Henry was successful in meeting the challenge of ensuring that the contents of the Annual Report and Annual Overview were presented in an accessible, consistent and readable style.
This was particularly the case for the Annual Overview that we decided to produce as a separate document to the Annual Report. The result was a clear and concise presentation of Buhrmann's brand and activities for those who are less concerned with the financial detail of the Annual Report.
Henry quickly and seamlessly integrated with the Buhrmann team and company culture. We appreciate his highly professional approach and are happy to recommend him to those undertaking similar projects."
Gerard van Buttingha Wichers - Director Corporate Communications & Investor Relations, Buhrmann NV
"Henry played an active part in the life of the World Gold Council making a valuable contribution to discussion of ideas and strategy and brought his marketing and communications skills to successfully add a commercial edge to our activities.
In this regard Henry was also responsible for publishing GOLD magazine, an important marketing and communications vehicle for the WGC. His re-launch of the magazine was highly successful in reaching a world-wide audience of miners, refiners, jewellers, investors, analysts and others active in the gold market."
Robert Pringle, Managing Director, Public Policy, World Gold Council
