Hi, I’m the Robyn behind Red Robyn!
I’m not one to pay much attention to motivational quotes but the following from the late French playwright and actor Molière resonates strongly with me: ‘The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.’
That’s because, when I’m not wrangling words at my laptop, I’m often outside training to overcome the next ‘obstacle’. I love physical challenges and count walking the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea and summiting a 4000m peak in the Italian Alps as two of my most glorious yet. I now train for challenging trail runs and mountaineering adventures—mountains have captured my imagination like no other landscape on earth—and occasionally write about my experiences on my blog.
In keeping with the need to challenge myself, Red Robyn Communications took flight because I needed to stretch my wings. Working in a nine-to-five office job was like being in a cage where my wings had been clipped. Starting Red Robyn Communications was my way to escape and, even better, to fly.
Leaning on my experience in corporate and internal communications, public relations, media liaison, and writing and editing—experience gained in my native Australia as well as London, New Zealand and France—I focus primarily on copywriting, copy-editing and proofreading.
