• Where Message Meets Magic

Professional Proofing, Copy-Editing, and Content Protection

Anything you publish – newsletters, books, contracts, blogs, marketing collateral, or communications; we ensure every word that leaves your business is professionally copy-edited, proofed, and documented.

Tandem Thinkers has extensive experience in many markets, including scientific, legacy, and partner publishing, meaning we know how to represent your written word professionally. We’ll source permissions, document references and bibliographies, and make sure your copyright work is protected.

Presentations and Reports

Your presentation should represent you – who you are, your image and style, and most importantly, your message, without unnecessary flash and distraction.

Tandem Thinkers has been engaged by many organizations to assist them in developing both presentations and reports. They chose Tandem Thinkers because they had an important opportunity and needed the deliverable to be professional, creative, and compelling for a client or audience.

Tandem Thinkers works with your end-goal in mind, building the message you are presenting to be relevant to your audience, and delivered with the style and emotion you want. That means just the right combination of key messaging and engaging, relevant flash. After all, it’s your message – and we are there to support you!

Presentation Skills

Sometimes you know what you want to express, but ensuring you are understood, and get the outcome you desire, requires more than content. Tandem Thinkers are experts in presenting. With over a thousand presentations under our belt, we are comfortable and accomplished in presenting one-on-one, through to a large conference venue. You can choose the level of support you want from Tandem Thinkers, from advising to building, through to presenting.

Additionally, there are times when you might find yourself in the presence of the media. Communicating is especially important due to the potential of you being quoted. Tandem Thinkers has taken courses on press training and has interacted with the press on multiple occasions as both spokesperson and subject matter expert. We help you to ensure clarity and provide positive visibility for your business.


Pick your platform – MailChimp, Constant Contact, AWeber, MailList King; your communications represent you – your brand, your image, your message. We take your message, and package it for maximum brand recognition, coverage, and newsletter open rate. And, it’s not just about publishing content. Tandem Thinkers handles analytics, list management, and CASL compliance, to ensure your message has optimum reach.

Spreadsheet Modeling

While numbers and formulas are core to a spreadsheet, making one sing is all about creative design and ease of interpretation of the results.

Tandem Thinkers are expert in the development of iterative modeling, leveraging dashboards, illustrations, and charting, to maximize impact and simplify future use for our clients. Tandem Thinkers has experience helping clients with both internal and external tools that make a difference. We’ve assisted in modeling internally for clients in areas as diverse as product costing to corporate profitability.

We help you to be more effective with your clients through automated charts & graphs, and data analysis that makes porting to a report or presentation simple. Tandem Thinkers’ approach enables you to present your story in a way that keeps your audience engaged and wanting more.
