Award Submission Writing Success

Client Success Story – Next Legal & Conveyancing Award Submissions

Since establishing her innovative legal practice in 2018, Alicia Floyer has experienced incredible growth and success. She wanted to celebrate the achievements of her team by entering a business award, but as a super-busy professional, she needed some assistance with the award submission.

After searching Google for a suitable business awards writer, Alicia contacted us for a chat about how we could help her with the preparation of a strong award submission. She asked us about our success rate. It was the first time a potential client had actually asked that, so we calculated it (and have since updated it). 

As at the end of 2022, we have a 96.25% success rate for clients being shortlisted as finalists or winning their categories. Alicia and her team have been a big part of this success.

Alicia has engaged The Professional Writer to assist with all her business award submissions over the past three years. We work collaboratively to prepare and polish all these award submissions, ensuring we highlight the young team’s significant achievements to date.

We’ve now assisted Next Legal & Conveyancing with finalist/winning entries in the Small Business Champions Awards, Women’s Small Business Champions Awards, Local Business Awards, Lake Macquarie Business Awards, Hunter Business Awards and Australian Law Awards, including 2022 Regional/ Suburban Law Firm of the Year. We love seeing our clients succeed!

Alicia gave us the following testimonial:

“I am truly so thankful for Lyndall’s expert help. Not only did she help me write three winning award submissions, but also our website content. Lyndall also assisted me in working out what my business goals were and reflect on everything I have achieved. The process was so easy, and we did everything via phone and email. It was like Lyndall had known me for years. Seriously recommend for award submissions, website content or any type of professional writing.”

Client Success Story – Angela Henderson

Angela Henderson is a successful entrepreneur, keynote speaker, business consultant, podcaster and mental health clinician. Her impact on women in business stems from starting her first business from scratch while juggling parenthood, so she understands the challenges and struggles of being a woman/Mum in business.

Angela loves helping other women and her attitude is collaboration over competition, every time. Over the years, she has empowered thousands of women with the tools, resources, community and coaching they need to grow sustainable, profitable businesses, much of it for free.

Some of Angela’s work includes:

We’re proud to be among the many beneficiaries of her wisdom and guidance! In 2020, Angela approached us to work with her on writing three submissions for the annual Stevie Awards. Although an accomplished writer herself, Angela is time-poor. She needed to tap into our award submission writing skills and award-winning tips and strategies. We collaborated over a period of weeks, putting together the three submissions and a range of supporting documents.

Words and writing which takes flight

Angela won three silver Stevie Awards for Women in Business:

  • Mentor/Coach of the Year
  • Podcast of the Year
  • Women Helping Women

Woot woo!!

Afterwards, Angela said …

“Working with Lyndall has been an absolute blast. She is professional, kind, prompt and simply amazing at her ability to pull everything together.

Entering the Business Excellence Awards Tweed Shire (BEATS)

The partners decided to enter their local Tweed Business Excellence Awards. As time-poor accountants, they needed some assistance with writing the submission. As we have an established relationship through networking with MMA partner, Jeannie Anderson, we were a natural choice. We were happy to collaborate with the team. We interviewed them to gain an in-depth understanding of their business and what truly sets their firm apart from competitors.

After working together on the submission, we were thrilled to hear that Mayberry Meldrum & Anderson were winners of the Excellence in Professional Services award. Congratulations team!

Jeannie Anderson sent us this testimonial about our award submission writing:

“As accountants, we are very good at numbers, but overwhelmed when it comes to words and writing. Lyndall and her team have been exactly what we were looking for. By employing her award submission writing services, it has enabled us to simply continue with our numbers.

Lyndall is a delight to work with, friendly and very easy to talk to. She did a wonderful job of engaging with all our staff, finding out who we are and what we do, and then bringing that to life through the written word. Lyndall’s work is of the very highest quality, professional, timely and accurate. Our firm will now be using The Professional Writer for all our writing requirements. It is such a relief for us to have someone who we can now simply ask to write for us.

We know that they know and understand our business, and they will deliver what we need. Working with The Professional Writer has been a wonderful experience. I can highly recommend Lyndall and her team for the writing needs of all businesses and individuals.”
