As copywriter for the Office of Sport, I was responsible for all marketing communications including electronic newsletters for 11 recreation centres and three Olympic sites, and the Office of Sport overall. Office of Sport included grants funding, regional programs and combat sports, and my job was to tailor communications for their respective audiences including a monthly news EDM (above) and latest news (left) regarding the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
In March 2014, I edited a 2,000-word report by Prof Scott Koslow of Macquarie University, and the report (left) is the result. This was a happy collaboration for everyone involved and my task was to package words, data and statistics into a flowing, compelling document that clearly stated how over-the-counter medicines could save the Australian economy billions of dollars.

I am also a proud associate of BWD, a blue-chip corporate consultancy for whom I regularly pen research reports for clients [see examples below].
Typically, my task has been to analyse and summarise research findings in a compelling, digestible form that can be easily translated into design. This writing skill requires creative vision and an ability to spot and highlight marketplace trends, and is supremely satisfying to master. Recently, I analysed, summarised and wrote two reports for one of BWD’s global retail clients.
With a strong history of magazine and business writing, Josie can turn her hand to any kind of assignment. She works with a high degree of professionalism and a minimum of supervision; once she has a brief she can be relied on to get on with the job at hand. Moreover Josie is a pleasure to work with. We appreciate her obliging nature and good humour, and have no hesitation in recommending her for any writing project.” …. Derryn Heilbuth, Strategic & Creative Director, BWD
