The Days of our Lives
About us pages are usually the most dishonest embellished pages you will ever find on a website. It's basically an excuse to talk about your brand, company or self in whichever way you'd like to represent yourself, more often than not it's a sleep inspiring bunch of business jargon and achievements that you as the reader will use against them when things don't go to plan.
Humour is one of the most underrated forms of communication. Most companies fear they would not be taken seriously if their website copy used anecdotal text or self-irony. God forbid your potential client may be inspired to stifle a little chuckle. It is clinically proven that laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict.
Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humour lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. It also helps you to release anger and be more forgiving.
Essentially our founder Elisabeth Jane Bertrand is a Communications professional with a hearty background in Tourism as a product manager for a tour operator, Publishing & Telecom Industry. she has indeed done all that in her 40some years on this earth although you wouldn't say she looks a day over 35. Which is quite amazing considering she's a workaholic, a closet smoker and is ever so partial to your odd glass of vino. (We just never bring it into the office anymore.)
So, in short the only thing you have to worry about with us is that she doesn’t drop dead before your project is finished.
Occasionally we'll freelance as a consultant for European agencies such as VOLT Europe and Harvey Nash however mostly we're contracted directly.
Since we have been working in this sector since the beginning of the internet our network of contacts is rather wide in scope and we have certainly had the opportunity to be at the birth of many online strategies however mature the company sounds to you, they also had to start somewhere...
We are a group of dedicated freelance writers, photographers, web consultants and communication specialists with an affinity for travel and destinations.
