"Working with Anne has been wonderful. Her attention to detail and context is amazing. She helped to create a video for us that celebrated community with community voice at the centre. This sounds simple but isn't. She took the time and effort to understand our organization's mission and values. The result was a powerful, heartfelt video that was both joyful and powerful."

"We would hire Anne Brett Hall again without hesitation. SNC-Lavalin is one of the world’s top engineering construction firms, active in numerous industry sectors all over the world. To effectively present all our activities in an annual report is a challenging undertaking. Anne was able to take information from over 100 interviews and various other background materials and distill it into a thorough, concise and well-written document.  Despite a tight deadline, Anne delivered high-quality work and always on time. Her background research, fact-checking and overall quality control were also impeccable.”

"The ODScore team had the pleasure of working with Anne Brett Hall of Red Door Wordsmithing to record numerous videos for our Mentoring program on two separate occasions. We appreciate the maturity and expertise that Anne brought to our projects. Anne and her team were punctual, organized and thoughtful in their approach. Anne took the time upfront to understand the intent and audience for each of our videos and spent time prepping our speakers prior to filming so they felt well prepared to cover all the salient points in their delivery. The review, editing and finalization process was completed on time and on budget. We are pleased with the quality of the videos from Red Door Wordsmithing and we look forward to partnering again in the future with Anne should the need arise."

"It has been a real pleasure working with Anne at Red Door Wordsmithing.  A true professional in every sense of the word! But it does not stop with her being a professional and very good at what she does.
She has taken my work on every eBook and quite simply made them substantially better. I trust her and in her ability to not only understand the meaning of my work and to then wordsmith but to also be completely free to add her own touch and creativity to the work.
The end result is fantastic, a home run! I highly recommend Anne and her work."

"When we asked Red Door Wordsmithing to help with the launch of our advertising campaign we were delighted that Anne immediately grasped our objective and skillfully and thoroughly provided us with an excellent write up for our brochure. Through her professional contacts she was also able to provide us with a graphic designer and followed up with edits and proof reading prior to printing. We are extremely happy with her results and felt well taken care of."
