Serpil and James, with patience, skill and good humour, enabled me to launch a cutting edge podcast. I couldn’t be more delighted with the enormously positive response. Serpil is a whizz at story-telling and James a master in first class audio production. They have been partners and cheerleaders on every step of the journey.
The Master Series podcast was only made possible by the expert guidance, knowledge and skill-sets of Serpil and James of Written & Recorded. Their craft has shown me how much of a key role podcasting plays in creating valuable content – podcasting should be embraced as much as possible. Their production is top draw!
Written & Recorded were invaluable to the success of our ClimateWorks/British High Commission online event series. Serpil and James‘ experience as producers shone through in all they did: their advice to us, the event scripting and guest briefs, and attentiveness to our hosts and audience. Their dedication to our series saw them work across time zones and to tight deadlines. Thanks team. You have helped us be better at what we do, and we look forward to a chance to work with you again.
Empowering and encouraging. How valuable would it be to you to empower your team to simply and concisely present the best of your organisation to a diverse range of clientele, and being able to speak into their unique contexts? For us, priceless . And Serpil and James delivered by providing an effective and reproducible pitching framework combined with empathetic coaching that encouraged and built confidence. Like an irresistible Tim Tam they combined knowledge and competence with a sweet centre of sensitivity and creativity. Thank you James and Serpil for more than just a course but helping many of us grow as communicators.
Serpil and James bring a freshness and enthusiasm to copywriting that is rare to find. 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!
I was blown away by how great the public speaking workshop was. As someone who has a real fear of public speaking I was quietly skeptical about how much I would be able to put into practice. I can honestly say that I came away with some brilliant tools to assist my presentations.
Working with Serpil and James has been a pleasure. They took care of all of the interviewees to ensure they were comfortable and felt supported. Their questions elicited wonderful insights and the podcast editing process was a dream. The whole process was wonderful and I’m so happy with the outcomes.
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.
We’ve had difficulty with copywriters 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.
We engaged Serpil Senelmis to interview founder and CEO of Australia’s Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, Kon Karapanagiotidis, 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.
We had a very positive experience working with Serpil and James on our webinar series. They worked effectively under tight deadlines and across multiple time zones to deliver a smooth, entertaining and highly informative series. Serpil was responsive and accountable and kept us in the loop as the event progressed. She is a strategic planner and was always looking for risks and planning ahead to avoid problems. Serpil and James provided expert insight that helped our webinars stand out from others. Thanks both!
This awesome team helped me launch the Diversity Initiative in our organisation. They explained what needed to happen to get a podcast launched, and make it good quality. Their editing is mind-blowing. The team even went out of their way to launch the podcast on social media, so we are able to leverage wider coverage.
It has been a delight to work with Serpil and James on the trailer and first episode of our podcast. Their invaluable advice and skillful editing transformed the material I gave them and let the story and the guests shine. In such a difficult year, it was bliss to find one thing that was so easy and exceeded all expectations.
Serpil and James’ open and genuine approach to the Public Speaking Workshop made me feel at ease. Their considered presentation, including personal insights and anecdotes, 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.
James set up a micro studio and a number of podcasts for my website The Constant Investor. Our first recording was during a large investing conference. He assured me I didn’t need to shout, just let the microphones do the work. James’ recording and editing always made me sound better than I remembered!
Written & Recorded partnered with the Interchange team to get us started on our podcast series, Culture is the Driver. They took the time to bring our vision to life with research, interviews and creative storytelling. They were great to work with and we appreciated their support and guidance.
