Rosemary Gillespie

Rosemary founded Proof Communications in 2000 after working for consultants KPMG and top law firm Allens as the firms’ bid manager. Rosemary began her writing career while working at the BBC in London. Yet it was a few years later, when she was working in business development for a large Swiss-based business, that Rosemary discovered her eye for detail that marks out her bid writing, editing and proofreading abilities. Rosemary’s writing career flourished, leading her around Europe, back to the UK, and eventually to Australia. Since moving to Australia two decades ago, Rosemary has worked on thousands of tenders, bids and proposals to government, private and listed companies. She has seen every scenario and type of response.
