Working with Serpil and James has been a pleasure. Not only did they book in all the sessions, they took care of all of the interviewees to ensure that they were comfortable and felt supported. The questions that they used elicited wonderful insights from everyone they talked to. The editing process was a dream. My work identified the most important aspects from the recordings, then James and Serpil edited those sections into beautiful flows while making the series useful and informative without feeling overwhelming. The whole process was wonderful and I’m so happy with the outcomes. Our stakeholders are happy and the people who were interviewed feel heard. We hope that the podcasts produced help teachers to support their students.

We’ve had difficulty with copywriters in the past who just don’t get what we do. Written & Recorded bring a journalistic approach to uncovering the story that we want to tell. Not only did they get it, but I could see my words, the way I would express myself, in the copy that they wrote. Written & Recorded have a deep understanding of the needs of website copy and they did a great job of merging that with my message.

Serpil and James undertook a series of writing workshops with the studio. They tailored their presentation to our particular requirements and type of work. They were relevant and led the workshop in an engaging and compelling manner.

We engaged Serpil Senelmis to interview human rights activist, founder and CEO of Australia’s Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, Kon Karapanagiotidis, about his book, ‘The Power of Hope’, for our 2018 [untitled] Literary Festival. We found Serpil to be a skilful and sensitive interviewer and presenter; prepared, professional and a pleasure to work with. Serpil and James were extremely generous with their time and expertise, and went the extra mile to record and podcast the session at their own expense.

Their clarity and prose illustrated how important good writing is. These learned skills have proven invaluable over time, to become powerful tools of communication and influence.

The Written and Recorded Public Speaking Workshop was an engaging and valuable experience. Serpil and James’ open and genuine approach to the workshop made me feel at ease during the various exercises which were challenging at times. Their considered presentation, including personal insights and anecdotes supported by accompanying notes clearly explained key points to successfully preparing and delivering a presentation (small or large). There were many easy to remember take-aways that I can readily implement into practice. “Ok butterflies fly in formation”.

I recently attended a full day public speaking workshop with Serpil and James and was blown away by how great the workshop was. As someone who has a real fear of public speaking I was quietly sceptical about how well I would perform during the workshop and also just how much I would actually be able to take away and put into practice. Serpil and James were so down to earth and approachable that from the minute we all came together, some 20 odd perfect strangers there was an immediate sense of collective safety to drop our guards down and really get the best out of the day. I can honestly say that I really enjoyed the day and definitely came away with some brilliant tools to assist with my presentation skills both for pitching and also my day to day interactions with clients.

The fear of public speaking has always been something I’ve known I needed to face and work on. There’s something deep, dark and ancient about the feeling in your gut when someone asks “Can you say a few words?”. What Serpil and James did was provide me with techniques to think differently about what I was saying, my approach and how to connect with my audience. The main take home was we are all story tellers, you’ve got to believe in what you are saying and your audience will come along with you for the ride. Which I was able to do the very same night of their seminar, great timing!

The Constant Investor

James Brandis set up an effective micro studio and a number of podcasts for my website The Constant Investor. The very first interview recording we did was during the lunch break of a large investing conference which was extremely noisy! James assured me that I didn’t need to shout, just to let the microphones do the work – and he was right. The deafening noise of the crowd faded into the background and our voices could be heard clearly. James’ recording and editing always made me sound better than I remembered!

Hardy Audio


Serpil and James bring a freshness and enthusiasm to copywriting that is rare to find. Hardy Audio creates radio ads for a broad range of clients with short deadlines, so I need a copywriter that writes quickly and on-brief. Written & Recorded deliver every time. They’ve even driven to Ballarat to meet in my office – I haven’t come across many agencies in Melbourne that will do that!

The Master Series podcast was only made possible by the expert guidance, knowledge and skillsets of Serpil and James of Written & Recorded. Their craft has shown me how much of a key role that podcasting plays in creating valuable content – podcasting should be embraced as much as possible. Their production is top draw!

This awesome team helped me launch the Diversity Initiative in our organisation, an initiative which is an important milestone in our company. They were able to explain on every level, what needed to happen in order to get a podcast launched, and make it good quality. Their editing is mind-blowing. It’s without a doubt, the top of the industry, and I’m more than grateful for what we received just as we were supporting a crucial corporate cause. The team even went out of their way to launch the podcast on social media, so that we are able to leverage wider coverage.

Collette Quinlan, Head of Design at Diadem

Serpil and James are great presenters and created a ‘safe’ space for our team to practice their skills and encouraged peer review on how to improve. We’ve now got a team of designers who are prepared for their next presentation opportunity, and I might even say some are excited about it. Serpil and James are a pleasure to deal with. They quickly grasped the finer details of our business (even after the first meet) which meant they could tailor their training to our team. I am looking forward to working with them again.

Competition Lore

In a matter of a few months, with patience, skill and good humour, Serpil and James have enabled me to launch a cutting edge podcast – Competition Lore  – and I couldn’t be more delighted with the enormously positive response it has had so far. As an academic used to publishing in scholarly journals that no-one reads, I was green about virtually everything there is to know about podcasting and content creation until I met Serpil and James.  Serpil is a whizz at story-telling and James a master in every aspect of first class audio production. Their passion and enthusiasm was infectious and they have been partners and cheerleaders on every step of the journey.

Movember Foundation

Written & Recorded uncovered stories that would have gone untold, found the right characters to bring them to life and then gave good advice to support pitching to media. We commissioned Written and Recorded to write a series of articles about the Movember Foundation’s programs that are improving the quality of life for men diagnosed with prostate cancer and testicular cancer around the world. The project was a complicated one – involving over thirty interviews across multiple timezones and some complex subject matter. Serpil & James handled the process admirably throughout; sharing discoveries, discussing new angles and managing stakeholders.
