What people I have worked with say about me

“Alex Wright is at the top when it comes to professional advice and writing. His ability to understand complex issues and make them simple and compelling for those he communicates with is unrivaled”
Bob Dilenschneider, CEO and Founder, The Dilenschneider Group Inc
“Alex Wright has worked as a freelance sub-editor on the sports desk of The Sunday Times for two years. This is a very busy, pressurised environment that demands a need for speed and accuracy, which is a rare combination – Alex is one of my most valued sub-editors. Not only does he have a good eye for detail, but he is not afraid to question things and is a real asset to the sports desk. He also has a broad range of knowledge”
Derek Clements, Chief Sub-Editor (Sport), The Sunday Times
“A skilful researcher and versatile writer, Alex secures strong interview material and supplies punchy, well-crafted copy. I can rely on him not only to deliver to a brief, but also to approach a given topic with precision and perceptiveness”
Tom Branton, Content Development Manager, Institute of Directors

“Alex Wright has worked with the Times Group on a freelance basis now for three years, progressing from providing several articles to hosting a virtual roundtable and a podcast for our latest publication – Jersey First for Finance. Alex has always proved to be very reliable and meet every deadline set, so from our perspective we will continue to utilise his skills going forward and I would have no hesitation in recommending him”

Kevin Sammon, Managing Director, Times Group

“I commissioned Alex to write a short industry report and he did a sterling job. Since then, he has become my go-to man for reports, press releases, media analyses and executive summaries for conferences, covering a range of topics. He always delivers on time and to brief. What impresses me most about Alex is his highly professional can-do attitude, clear and accurate writing style and the integrity of his work”

Will Walter, Managing Director, Bridgehead Communications
“Put Alex Wright to work and he will quickly become one of your go-to writers. He’s technically adept, deadline conscious and delivers copy that is tightly constructed and factual. He’ll never tie up your time asking questions that he can answer himself and overall requires a minimum of supervision”
Dan Reynolds, Editor-In-Chief, Risk & Insurance
“Alex is a highly capable profile writer who has been able to understand a brief from 10,000 miles away, file on time, quickly make any tweaks required, and provide the sort of copy that doesn’t often required tweaks to be made at all. He has also provided story ideas which we took up, and helped to secure good photographs. He has impressed not just me but other senior staff. I recommend him without hesitation”
David Walker, Editor, Acuity magazine
“Alex is a very good journalist who consistently delivers clear and clean copy in good time. He is versatile and conscientious in his work, as well as being reliable and punctual. He has become a much-valued addition to our roster of freelancers”
Adrian Lowery, Deputy Editor, Thisismoney
“AM magazine has been commissioning Alex since the beginning of 2017 to write features on a variety of topics specific to the UK’s motor retail industry. We’ve been very happy with the quality of his work, and despite motor retail being a new subject for him he has learned quickly and gained an understanding of our readership and what we require”
Tim Rose, Editor, Automotive Management

“I initially commissioned Alex to write the content for the homepage of a new website I was launching. He did an excellent job, getting across all the key messages clearly and concisely. Since then, he has written the homepage for my main business website, which was again of the highest standard. Because of his extensive knowledge of finance and insurance, Alex quickly gets to grips with complex ideas and presents them in an easy to understand and persuasive way. I can’t recommend him highly enough”

Dr Marcus Schmalbach, Founder and CEO, Ryskex

“Alex is what you want in a freelance writer – diligent, approachable, fast, and a reliable writer. He is very responsive, which is very important to me, and his writing is always up to scratch. He always writes to the brief, and his content is engaging and creative. I have only had positive experiences with Alex. The fact that he comes from a journalistic background stands him out as a writer. He knows how to write content for the media. He comes with my recommendation”

Luke Thompson, Partner, Transmission Private
“I have commissioned Alex to write features for First Voice magazine on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. I have been impressed by both the quality of his writing, the interviews he has obtained and the manner in which he has stuck to the brief. Copy has always been engaging, readable and, critically, delivered on time. I have no hesitation in recommending his services as a features writer to others”
Nick Martindale, Editor, Redactive Media Group
“Alex was great to work with, supplying interesting and quality copy. We commissioned Alex to write an article surrounding our SAP Management Controlling event and the end result was a well-versed, technical piece of content that proved to be great fit for our audience. We hope to work together again!”
Martha Townrow, Event Marketing Manager, T.A. Cook
“My business works in the field of technology and management so Alex’s experience in this field was essential. He has been helping me for the last five months, whether that is writing marketing material from scratch or reviewing my work and acting as the all-important sanity check. In both cases, Alex’s knowledge and experience on crafting text for the public has shone through. In addition, he has always been able to achieve a quick turnaround in his work. He has been a pleasure to work with and I’d be more than happy to recommend him”
Tony Fleming, Owner, Pathfinder Project Manager
“Alex Wright is a very creative and professional copywriter. He can take a glimmer of an idea and turn it into a persuasive piece of writing. He researches his subject well, being able to pull out a core message to make an engaging story that resonates with the reader. He also has a unique writing ability to connect with readers on many different subjects”
Alistair Bendyshe-Brown, Founder/Creative Director, Summer Day Media
“I worked with Alex Wright for four-and-a-half years on The Royal Gazette, Bermuda’s national daily newspaper. I can vouch for Alex as a tenacious, efficient and hard-working journalist, who delivered a consistently high standard of work, often under the pressure of a tight deadline. He developed a good understanding of the varied business landscape in Bermuda, ranging from the small local businesses to the multibillion-dollar global insurers, and built a broad network of contacts here across the full spectrum. As a self-starter, he came up with many good ideas for newspaper and magazine stories and editorial projects like the ‘Bermuda Top Ten Employers Awards’, an idea that he made reality through months of hard work outside his regular job, determination and good contacts. He’s also trustworthy, reliable and I found him a pleasure to work with.”
Jonathan Kent, Assistant Editor, The Royal Gazette
“I commissioned Alex as features editor for four articles for Microbrew 2016. Contacting, interviewing and liaising with top people within the UK brewing industry bought about unique quotes and comments which Alex then wrote about in an interesting, thought-provoking way which showed his journalistic skills to the fore. The quality of Alex’s work was excellent and he was a pleasure to work with on this project”
Nigel Smith, Publisher, Microbrew
“I have worked with Alex as a freelance writer for Risk & Insurance for several years, and he always delivers superb work. He is professional and courteous to work with, knowledgeable and ever-curious about the subject matter at hand, and an overall skilled journalist. I work with a lot of journalists in the risk and insurance industry, and count Alex to be one of the best!”
Meg Cotiguala, Senior Account Executive, KemperLesnik
“I have known Alex Wright for a number of years having met him in Bermuda when I was posted there by Schroders as managing director of their subsidiary there, Schroders (Bermuda) Limited. Alex at the time was working for the Royal Gazette, reporting on issues related to finance and business.

Managing the company’s contacts and relationships with the press and other media was a key element of my management responsibilities in Bermuda, very much as it was in my previous jobs at Schroders. In my experience, managing press and media relations can at times be difficult, but they can be very satisfying, particularly when dealing with the press, when the journalist shows a thorough understanding of the subject, economics, finance and asset management in case, and reports accurately and objectively. I have always liked his style, the presentational aspects and his commentary.

This was very much the case with Alex. He has an impressive knowledge of financial markets in general coupled with a good background in the supportive economics. As a result, the relationship with Alex was very satisfactory and interesting on a professional level. We also became friends over time and I value his friendship.”

David Burns, Non-Executive Member of the board of Trea SA, on the Advisory Board of the Trea Direct Lending fund and Black Toro Capital and an Advisor to Pakenham Partners Limited
“Alex is simply the most versatile journalist I have worked with in my 20-year career. It’s not just his ability to address several topics as a specialist. Added to that is his ability to write in different styles – entertaining newspaper prose one day and then the following day a prescriptive client advertorial, both with equal competence and verve. He’s calm but proactive and organised, which puts colleagues and clients at ease. He has a rare ability to listen and ask the right questions without prejudging a story. Other people I know with a comparable talent have an ego of a similar size, but not Alex. A really good guy, always with an interesting observation that cuts through any nonsense. Despite his broad writing experience I personally think Alex is at his best when he’s tackling something completely new, where the result is a newsworthy and carefully-charted insight for any reader who needs an introduction to a subject”
David Banks, Political Researcher and Director of Imaginexit and former insurance magazine Editor
“As an agency working with Alex Wright has been an absolute pleasure. Alex has been proactive in helping us to achieve our content needs on tight deadlines whilst the content that has been delivered has been superb”
Olu Kolade, Senior Digital Consultant, Common Ground
“Alex and I have worked together for the best part of a decade for newspapers and magazines in Bermuda, the US and the UK. Simply put, he gets the story, knows his stuff, and meets deadlines”
Roger Crombie, Consulting Writer
“I had the distinct pleasure of working with the journalist Alex Wright in Bermuda, while he was employed at the The Royal Gazette and I was a manager with the Ascendant Group Limited.  Alex demonstrated not only his facility with language but also his personal integrity and keen business sense. The resulting articles were always of the highest standard”
Cynthia Wright, The Wright Stuff Consulting
