Some Words From Our Clients

Jess and the team at Write Connections are fantastic to work with. Their enthusiasm and the creative approach they took in launching our new customer service website was exactly what we needed. Our web traffic and member registration and has far exceeded our expectations. Couldn’t have done it without them. When it comes time for our next project, we will be using the team at Write Connections.

Tim Reecer, City of Elkhart

Write Connections get results by understanding what you want to accomplish and developing an effective strategy to accomplish that goal.

Don Weirenga, Corvilla

I first met Jess when we worked together on diversity issues and then started to use her expertise when trying out new ideas and concepts with my partner companies. Jess is a marketing and communications professional who I rely on to help guide me when creating new programming.

Keith Woods, United Way Worldwide

Jess is an amazing person to work with. Given the breadth of her experience, she has a wealth of knowledge to draw upon. She understands the ins and outs of fundraising and is passionate about matching donors with causes that are important to them. Jess is very perceptive, and can be counted on to be frank and honest about what works and doesn’t work in the non-profit sector.

Hayley Tessier, Church Community Services

Jess did an excellent job gathering information prior to the meeting and was well prepared to lead our team throughout the day.  She challenged our group to think outside the box and to delve deeper into the question of “what if”.  By the end of the day, many things were accomplished:  newer board members had a clearer understanding of the HSEC and their mission; the Executive Director’s job was more well-defined and an outline for a strategic plan was formulated.   Her leadership skills allowed us to move through a packed agenda at a manageable pace, resulting in an excellent outcome.  Speaking from the point of view of a non-profit agency, we would highly recommend Jess and Write Connections for your next strategic planning retreat!

Lana Davis, Humane Society of Elkhart County

Jess is perceptive, intuitive, and tailored her work and presentation down to our local brand. It was not a generic strategy meeting, but instead focused on our very specific needs. She challenges us and pushes us to strive for fulfillment of our mission for our community. She did a wonderful job at our strategy meeting and board retreat.
