Profile

As the owner of NVW Communications, Nancy Verrall Warren has been providing high-quality writing, editing and course development services to a wide range of clients for more than 25 years.

She has excellent writing, proofreading, copy editing and researching skills honed during extensive work with such organizations as Global Affairs Canada, African Women in Agricultural Research and Development, World Vision International and AUSAID. She is very well organized and can manage complicated communications projects with a keen attention to detail and a commitment to deliver on deadline.

In various leadership roles Nancy has directed high-performing professional teams in developing successful communications strategies to engage private and public donors, government officials, community leaders and other stakeholders. For example, as manager of writing services for Alcatel-Lucent, she worked with a team of writers, editors, proofreaders and graphic designers, which included long-term employees, new hires and freelance contractors. The company’s products and solutions are launched according to a firm quarterly schedule that calls for a suite of collateral, including marketing plans, communications plans, data sheets, white papers, brochures, PowerPoint presentations, sales guides and web updates. This effort required relying on and communicating with subject matter experts who live in various time zones. She ran regular conference calls and webinars to finalize the details of product launches and to keep track of deliverables, and was successful in meeting rigid deadlines.
