“Rebecca was my Editor when I worked as Deputy Editor on Period Ideas – at that time pagination was sustained at its highest level to date, and ad revenues were excellent. This was in no small part thanks to Rebecca’s impeccable writing and subbing skills, eye for design, authoritative and inclusive management technique, and her intuitive understanding of the target audience. I learnt a great deal from Rebecca and would have no hesitation in working with her again. Since my own move to Build It magazine, I’ve been fortunate to speak to Rebecca in her PR capacity and it’s clear to me that she’s translated her experience and talent with great success.”Chris Bates

“Rebecca Winward worked in my editorial department for nearly five years. During this time she was promoted into a senior editor role where she controlled the commercial and creative direction of a national newsstand title. She introduced some new ideas to the magazine editorial and design which saw immediate results in terms of sales and advertising support. Her vision and the delivery of her ideas required organization and energy.
I feel Rebecca is able to really understand audiences and engineer workable ways to attract them. She proposed new editorial ideas with proper rationale for their inclusion within the magazine. She was a good time-manager and delegated when necessary. All her work (and that of her team) was produced to deadline and to a very high standard. She gave great consideration to the look of a final page making her an intuitive editor, in my view.
Her managerial skills were excellent. As the supervisor of an editorial team of three, I found her dedicated, caring and clear-minded with staff. Her staff appraisals were thorough and her relationship with her team, kept professional. She managed a huge workload to a tight deadline calmly and with due care.
Rebecca was a fine diplomat for our company and demonstrated good communication skills in the boardroom and with company associates. She was often required in client meetings where negotiation and passion were needed. Our company was very well represented with Rebecca in attendance.”
“I’ve been impressed by Rebecca’s ability to turn her hand to any type of written work – from awards entries to press releases, and magazine advertorials to website copy – and also with her versatility when it comes to subject. She has produced sparkling copy for a diverse group of our clients, from a motorsports electronics firm to a property finder, by way of various other types of businesses. I’d thoroughly recommend her copywriting services.”Nichola Cain
