“Claudia taught me that when writing, less is more, and a lot more powerful at the same time. Believe me, it was not an easy task to get through the lifetime of bad habits I brought to the table. I am extremely grateful that she shared her gifts with me, and will use these skills for the remainder of my career.”

“Thank you for conducting ‘Relationship Driven Writing and the Writing Process’ and ‘A Dozen Business Writing Brush Ups’ seminars for The Atlanta Development Authority. From every employee segment, we found your sessions to be extremely informative with direct application!  We received extremely positive feedback from attendees on the content, your non-threatening humorous style and innate capabilities as an informative speaker.  Everyone here feels Executive Speak/Write has made a huge contribution in helping us focus and deliver our messages more effectively!”

“You are absolutely amazing.  Representing the World Trade Center takes energy, enthusiasm and the ability to talk to audiences from around the globe.  This is even more challenging given I am simultaneously translating into English the words and pace of my Russian vocabulary.  Your support and direction on how to improve my presence has inspired me to make a great presentation.”

“If you are looking to enhance your professional skills, I highly recommend Executive Speak Write.  As a CPA, I am constantly interacting with people through all channels of communication.  I was looking for ideas to implement for results, impact and efficiency.  After completing the writing and presence courses, the tips I learned improved the effectiveness of my letters, emails and presentations and helped me capture my overall communication voice. The exposure to proper business etiquette in our changing world was insightful and I thoroughly enjoyed working with ESW.”

“Claudia Coplon is a great resource for us at UGA’s Training and Development Center. Claudia facilitates at the Center on a regular basis and she has strengthened our curriculum with her informative and dynamic seminars. Seminar participants rave about her instruction in their evaluation commentary, saying: ‘Great instructor. I would advise everyone who is a student or works here at UGA to take her class (Business Writing Skills) at least once. Great job!’”

“Executive Speak/Write provided the communication skills I needed to land a key international sales position—and without a second interview. Claudia repositioned my writing to be more concise and relationship-driven. My written interaction with the company helped seal the deal and now contributes to communications with my international clients. Throughout, Claudia pointed out my positive capabilities and steered me towards them. Sounds simple, but few do it. Thanks to my new perspective, I have achieved heights of success I never thought possible.”

“Claudia Coplon’s writing seminar was invaluable to me and my team. As a group we learned broad guidelines that were relevant and immediately applicable. Individually, she provided one-on-one feedback that allowed us to address each of our specific writing challenges. I’ve got a few of Claudia’s tips taped next to my computer – they never fail to come to my rescue when I’m tackling a tough assignment. Claudia’s warmth, energy, and her genuine interest in helping us made for a very positive training experience.”

“Your writing class workshop was excellent. You were funny and creative. Your ability to connect with your audience and make each person feel important was amazing. Your style, presence, and attention to detail were outstanding. Simply put you are fabulous. Thank you for being genuine and truly interested in improving my writing skills.”

“When it comes to writing and editing Claudia Coplon can do it all. I called on Claudia to assist with the writing of materials for our team member training program. She came highly recommended from my boss who had used her to revamp an operations manual which then remained in use many years after it had been rewritten. Not only did she do a phenomenal job with the writing and editing of the new team member training program, she assisted me with managing several other freelance writers. She monitored and edited their work prior to my ever seeing it. She is very professional, organized, and conscientious about herself and her work. What a true blessing it is working with Claudia.”

“Claudia and I have crossed professional paths many, many times over the last ten years. Recently, she served as the chief editor of a 50+ page technical evaluation of electronic medical records (EMRs) commissioned by the American College of Rheumatology. While the content of the committee’s draft report was excellent, its jumble of differing writing styles and inconsistencies coupled with the complexity of the information required the skills of a professional writing consultant to make it worthy of publishing. As the staff member responsible for production of the final report, I tapped Claudia Coplon as my first and only choice to make the changes. Within a short time, she put her red pen to work and transformed the piece. Needless to say, the final report is an excellent tool for our physician members. Claudia’s writing expertise made the presentation of this important technical information clear, uniform, engaging and wholly professional. I am indebted!”

“I was introduced to Claudia Coplon as a potential copywriter for my new business.  What I found in Claudia was so much more!  She has proven to be a full service business consultant.  In just one strategy session, Claudia helped me develop my mission statement, elevator speech, and name for my business!  In just a couple of more sessions, she was instrumental in helping me to launch my website.  In addition to writing the web copy, her contributions in helping me to define and communicate my portfolio of services were priceless.  And, through Claudia’s business connections and networking, I have already secured one client and several prospects.  My decision to initiate a relationship with Claudia has been my best business marketing decision to date!”
