“I don’t have time to sit and write blogs or newsletters. My clients want my thinking in reports and workshops, agendas and strategies. Write Ideas is the perfect solution.  I sit with Simon, map out a plan–themes and ideas for blogs, newsletters, and social media. He has found my voice perfectly, and drafts those ideas into words that I can more easily play with, and then get them out.  Simon takes the time to really understand what I want to do–long-term and short-term. I have a plan to live life on purpose, to enable others have a vision and achieve it.  With Simon’s help, I can get this message out in a timely way without late night stress! Thank you Simon, and bless you for starting Write Ideas.”

Susan Benedyka, managing director, The Regional Development Company & Thought Leader

“Simon was an integral part of the campaign to get Cathy McGowan re-elected as the federal Member for Indi in 2016. He worked incredibly hard as a member of her staff, but also crossed over to help the campaign team where I was a member of the marketing team. He was diligent, thought provoking, and ‘on the money’ in terms of strategy. I really cannot find the ‘write’ words to give his work the full credit it deserves – just trust what you see and hear.”

Roberta Baker, Marketing team, Cathy McGowan 2016 Re-election Campaign

“I worked closely with Simon over an intense few months leading up to the 2016 Federal election. Simon was able to manage many complex and varied tasks but not lose sight of the big picture. He consistently met deadlines and worked within the budget. He got on well with all, and was able to build positive relationships with the multiple stakeholders within the campaign team and with suppliers. This was a key to him achieving results. The communication plans Simon developed and implemented were always carefully thought out and well targeted. At all times he was considered, thoughtful and focused on the outcome.”

“Simon Crase is the undisputed star of the show in this winner with strong local reporting and great coloured pics, such as celebrity chef Matt Moran getting down and dirty with local goats or local star barista Jackie Espejo. Crase also shone through in lively sports coverage on the backs of this paper.”
