About Liz

In case you haven’t met me

I started Well Written as a way of making a contribution. Having just lost a close friend to cancer, the question ‘where to from here?’ kept playing on my mind. I was looking for meaningful work that brought my key interests (people, business and writing) together; a space where I could offer my effort, enthusiasm, thought, creativity and care.

Well Written provided the perfect opportunity. 

My strengths lie in pulling information together, analysing it, then presenting it in a practical, usable format. I enjoy using that process to smooth out the bumps, remove the ‘headaches’ and free up people’s time and mental space.

  • establishing new services/business units,
  • mergers and acquisitions,
  • infrastructure renovations/upgrades,
  • standards compliance,
  • strategic plan development,
  • service and business analysis and continuous improvement,
  • restructures,
  • franchising,
  • business continuity,
  • service model reviews and continuous improvement,
  • executive and governance support for not-for-profit boards,
  • implementing pilot programs, and
  • stakeholder consultation and engagement.

My tools of trade

When you work with me, you will see me with:

  • coloured pens, because I think in colour;
  • large mugs of tea, because tea makes the world a better place; and
  • notebooks, because although I love my computer, there’s nothing like paper for generating ideas. I also love opening a fresh book and looking forward to the interesting projects that will fill its pages.
My tools of trade!

A love of learning

I’m an eternal student and am always on the look out for new courses to do. I have a Degree in Business, a Diploma of Journalism, a Diploma in Professional Writing and Publishing and a Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language.

To support my change management and leadership work, I have completed executive development, leadership and project management courses and the Neuroscience Academy’s Certificate in Applied Neuroscience and Brain Health.

Making a social contribution

“We make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill

I enjoy volunteering and being actively involved in my local and business communities. I am on the Stirling Business Association’s Management Committee and participate in the Australian Institute of Management’s Member Network Group. I’m also a member of the WA Society for Women’s Writers, the Project Management Institute and Australasian Medical Writers Association.

When I’m not working

When I’m not working or volunteering, I love to read, cook and walk the youngest member of our family.
