“Axel Buhrmann is an exceptional writer and his tech expertise is unmatched. He is also a superb editor. I have worked with Axel for over 27 years and have always found his writing up to a very high standard, his knowledge of the tech sector is wide and deep and therefore this translates into valuable content. He also has a great understanding of what topics will work in connecting with audiences and media, providing valuable ideas to the story process.”  Janine Lloyd — CEO of PR Expert; Professional Speaker; Business Coach

 “Axel was born with a brain that compels him to take risks and change things. When he writes stories, he really writes them and he does so fully understanding the audience to whom he is speaking. If you want a writer/editor that truly immerses himself into every project he is a part of, you can stop the search here.” Andrea Slater — Account Director at Fleishman-Hillard

“One of the best decisions I ever made was to hire Axel to rescue a deeply dysfunctional account. He climbed in with a level of vigour and extreme attention to detail, and produced extraordinary results where none were to be had. All through this difficult project he over delivered, while maintaining a sense of humour. He is a true professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him.” Kate Elphick — Microsoft Business Unit Executive at Exponant
