“Stephen is a very talented copywriter, with a unique ability to distill the essence of a message into concise and crystal-clear language.”

Jean-Yves Sireau, CEO,


Manidis Roberts is a long-time client, so I asked Peter Devine for a testimonial. Knowing he’s a busy guy, I offered (jokingly) to write it myself. His reply: “Please do. You would do a much better job than me. Which is a testimonial in itself!”

Peter Devine, former Managing Director, Manidis Roberts/RPS


“I worked with Stephen for more than 15 years and, time and again, he proved his worth as a writer who was able to convert complex text into simple, crisp writing for technical and community audiences.”

Geoff Roberts, FormerDirector, Manidis Roberts/RPS


“Jacobs has used Stephen as a technical reviewer for a number of RMS projects over the past five years. His review inputs have been very well received by RMS and as a result he has become one of their preferred technical reviewers. Stephen’s focus on detail, ability to structure and articulate messages clearly and succinctly and his efficiency have made him a real pleasure to work with. Stephen will remain my first choice for all future technical review roles.”

Dr Andrew Spinks, Senior Environmental Planner, Jacobs


“Stephen’s writing and editing is extraordinarily succinct. He is able to translate convoluted academic writing into digestible key points of interest and importance. Marry this with an ‘on time on budget’ work ethic and the result is an extremely professional operator. Stephen is capable of converting dull professional or academic reports into bedside thrillers.”

Professor Alan Bensoussan, Director, National Institute of Complementary Medicine, University of Western Sydney


“Stephen has edited a number of our reports. I’ve found him to be consistently reliable in delivering high quality work while working to very tight timelines.”

Javier Valderrama, Arcadis


“Stephen has added a layer of humanisation to our content that is effective at reaching and connecting with our readers. Getting Stephen’s help has had an instant impact.”

Gracie Morrison, Montgomery Investment Management


“When we were drafting CREW’s proposal for a major coal industry-funded research consultancy, we turned to Stephen for advice on project planning, client relationship management and communication strategy. Stephen’s extensive experience, strategic perspective and practical, creative expertise were crucial in generating our vastly improved and winning proposal.”

“Stephen is brilliant at reading and understanding dense, technical text and then conveying it in easy-to-understand writing.”

Philip Manidis, former Director, Manidis Roberts/RPS


“I’ve employed Stephen on a number of projects. He can be relied on to provide high quality, well-written work. His writing skills stand out from the crowd.”

“I started using Stephen’s services several years ago on the suggestion (or perhaps insistence) of an important government client. This client had begun to place an increasing focus on the quality of its public facing documents. Until that point I had adopted the standard consultancy practice of undertaking all writing and editing in-house. After using Stephen on this initial project, I became an instant convert, realising that involving him at critical points in the preparation of an important document could not only result in a much better product, but ultimately save me money and stress through less rework and happier clients. Aside from his writing and editing skills, Stephen’s flexibility and understanding of our needs for a given task make him extremely easy to work with. I now regularly encourage other people in my organisation to use Stephen.”

Peter Rand, Technical Director Environment, Hyder Consulting


“As a clinician, my writing skills were not up to scratch. Stephen Sheldon from Write to the Point took my clinically sound but rough draft and transformed it into a professional masterpiece. Stephen is a pleasure to work with and produces excellent results. I would highly recommend him for all your writing and editing needs.”

“Stephen, Wow! …. I should have spoken to you much earlier… we really like your work. Clearly you get what you pay for! Excellent work.”

Alan Smith, FutureGen


“I contacted Stephen with the need of some copywriting to help create some new business, but what he provided, a fresh concept of delivery, exceeded far and beyond my expectations.”

Brett Oliver, Sound etc
