One of my favorite clients told me that it wasn’t just my ability to write or help her tell a story that she loved about our work together. “My favorite thing about you, Fran, is your brain.” Let’s put our heads together and get to work on your content.
Housing Director, Orange County (N.C.) Government
“Working with Fran really helped me clarify some complex policies and procedures into a readable, understandable document for our community. Her skills for simplifying complex ideas and finding commonalities across a dense amount of content led to a much better product. I would jump at the chance to work with Fran again!”
Tina Bailey, Empowerment Coach and Speaker
Lead architect of the Annual HELP Conferences, day-long events designed to provide participants with all the tools needed to set the stage for a transformational life “makeover”.
As one of the speakers at the 4th annual event my presentation was titled: “You’ve made the transformation – now what?!” A Conversation About Telling Your Story. Tina reflected on my contribution:
“You were able to read what was needed for the participants in the room — for where they were at the end of the day. We could have used more time, but you were on point and really effective. … What sets you apart from others is that you didn’t come in with an agenda, you came in with the intention of being a resource and a service.”
Consulting Manager, The Performance Group
“Fran has the gift of explanation – she doesn’t just tell you her opinion, she tells the ‘why’ behind her reasoning. This allows her to untangle confusing concepts to make them approachable. More tactically, she has amazing curiosity – she’s a great information gatherer; and she has an editor’s eye in her attention to detail.”
Executive Director, Fox Family Foundation
What are the most valuable assets that Fran brought to her work with you?
“I’d say that the top three assets Fran brought would be the consistency with which she produced high-quality work, her clarity with audience in mind, and the fine-detail editing she provides – WITH flexibility.” [Fran’s note: sometimes it’s OK to break a grammar rule!]
What little (or big) “extra” something-something did you get from working with Fran?
“I found value in the coaching and guidance I got when I was the writer of a project and I hit a roadblock. Fran was reflective, curious, and enthusiastic about this and any other task – regardless of how small.”
