What clients say about my work
When McElhanney Consulting requires professional editing, our first call is to Sylvia Siemens. Sylvia is technically excellent but also has an uncanny ability to understand the type of document we are trying to produce. This blends the editing exercise into our report writing seamlessly. We appreciate the delivery of her work on time and on budget. I would recommend Sylvia to any consulting firm wanting to upgrade their product presentation.
Gary Debney, Senior Recreation Planner, McElhanney Consulting
You couldn’t do better than to hire Sylvia. She doesn’t just edit; her extremely helpful and knowledgeable comments provide alternative ways of expressing the material, which leads to its greater clarity, concision, and quality. Sylvia has edited for us a number of very large technical courses that we put into a sometimes temperamental template. She dealt with it admirably and even offered suggestions on how to troubleshoot it. Apart from intra-document comments, she sent invariably valuable and much appreciated notes and final thoughts when she delivered on contracts.
Alena Sayer, Training Development Associate, Alberta Safety Codes Council
While working with Sylvia, I have been consistently impressed with her initiative, her commitment to deadlines, and her thoroughness. To work with Sylvia is to see that she is obviously passionate about what she does—always seeking to learn more about her subject matter and striving to deliver excellence with every job. Sylvia uses her extensive knowledge of language, syntax and punctuation while honouring the writer’s own style.
Julie Barringer, Managing Editor, Calgary Gardening magazine
I would highly recommend Sylvia Siemens without hesitation for any individual or corporation who requires an expert editor and writer who is both strategic and dedicated to creating a superior product for you to showcase. Sylvia was instrumental in helping us launch our Board Policy Manual and provided expert advice and support. Sylvia is enthusiastic, intelligent and detail-oriented and can provide exceptional work on a very tight deadline. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
