Denise Quinell, Eastern Fraser Valley Child Care Coalition
"Thank you for your hard work on our brochure. We appreciated your keen eye for detail and the organization that you brought to the timelines, design, and production. Your suggestions concerning the wording of the text were great, as you pointed out problems and provided solutions that we would never thought of. As you know, the project involved a lot of people and required obtaining feedback and building consensus quickly to meet a tight deadline. Your communication skills were quite simply amazing in orchestrating it to all come together. The resulting brochure was much better than we had expected. Thank you again and I look forward to working with you in the future!"
Susanne Willms Thielman, author of Susanne Remembers: A Mennonite Childhood in Revolutionary Russia
"About thirty years ago I wrote my memoirs of growing up in Russia. I didn't do anything with them until a year or so ago when my family urged me to make them into a book. After meeting Philip, I decided to hire him to organise my manuscript, add some of my father's writings, write a brief article on Mennonite history, and edit everything. He did a wonderful job and I am very happy with the book, Susanne Remembers.
"Philip is hardworking and indulges himself completely in his work. He is dependable and respectful of me and my work, and I knew I could trust him. In every way he was professional and easy to work with— patient, but gently pushing me when I needed pushing. Some of my writing was awkward in parts, as my mother tongue is German, but Philip smoothed it out while making sure that it still sounded like me.
"I am ninety-five, and I don't think I could ever have done this by myself. I am very grateful to Philip for making my book as good as it is. Without him my manuscript would still be sitting in a drawer."
