Our work covers an extensive range of corporate communication challenges. Here is a sample.

In 2005 and 2006 we supported Royal DSM N.V. with the global roll-out of revised Corporate Requirements.
In 2009 we developed Transforming the Customer Experience, a brochure outlining the offering and aspirations of DSM Business Support. We followed this in 2010 with a similar publication for DSM Expert Center.
We edit and produce a number of magazines for client organizations. These range from printed publications to e-magazines, covering both external and internal communications. Clients include Sight and Life, DSM Pharmaceutical Products, DSM Business Support and DSM Expert Center.
We copy-wrote the 2007 and 2008 Triple P Reports (sustainability reports) for Royal DSM N.V.

Development of award concepts

In 2007 we edited a comprehensive set of management reports for KPMG.
In 2005 we supported DSM Nutritional Products with the creation of the DSM Nutritional Products Voyager, a mobile installation that travelled the world and told the story of the DSM brand.
In 2010 we helped DSM Business Support develop a trade fair for its internal customers. This was first trialed on employees of DSM Business Support and then, some months later, restaged in expanded form for customers.
We also plan and organise the biannual departmental meetings of DSM Business Support, at which key themes for the organization’s development are explored and factored into its strategy.
We ghost-write speeches, presentations, editorials and letters on behalf of business leaders and corporate communication departments.
Since 2003 we have created and edited over a dozen different internal magazines and newsletters for Royal DSM N.V. Most of these have run for at least two years and several have appeared in eight languages and had a global distribution. This editorial work is complemented by a wide range of activities from communication strategy development and planning to the running of meetings and staging of workshops.
Since 2003 we have developed, edited and maintained a number of Intranet sites for Royal DSM N.V., including the sites for the VITAL and True Blue projects and the site of DSM Business Support in the new Global Sharing Intranet environment.

From 2003 to 2005 we supported Royal DSM N.V. with the two-year long integration of Roche Vitamins following DSM’s acquisition of that organisation.
Our marketing communications activities range from writing advertising copy through developing marketing brochures to editing websites. In 2008 we edited LC-PUFA – A guide to health benefits and market trends on behalf of the American Oil Chemists' Society (AOCS). This was followed in 2009 and 2010 by the development of milestone publications for DSM Nutritional Products about its Quality for Life™ seal and its new offerings in the fields of Infant Nutrition and Maternal Nutrition.
We write press releases for a wide range of organizations operating in a variety of industrial sectors.
