Annett in a few words
As a specialist in international strategic communication and project design with 10+ years of experience, I work as a freelance communication specialist and proposal writer for communication agencies, development consulting firms and NGOs in Europe and worldwide.
Over the past two years, I helped my clients to successfully answer calls for proposals, tenders and request for services (EC | EASME, DG REGIO, DG COMM, EIT Health, EuropeAid, and USAID). I give support and advice on the project design and the communication strategy. Within the proposal writing process, I take care of writing the complete communication package and related case studies. I also revise communication and project strategies. Among the clients that trust me are GOPA Com., Phrenos, ICWE, Caritas, Marco de Comunicación and B&S Europe.
How can I help you?
✅Awareness-raising and communication campaigns
✅Definition of communication objectives & target audiences
✅Communication concept and methodology
✅Key messages and their narratives
✅Amplification strategy (social media, stakeholders, multipliers and influencers, press and media relations, events etc.)
✅Evaluation / impact assessment
✅Content creation / copywriting
During my over 5 years at PAU Education, a Barcelona based EU communication agency, I worked on 360-degree European communication campaigns and pilot-projects. As part of the strategy team, I significantly contributed to winning tenders for the European Commission such as the Communication Framework Contract of DG EAC and EUIPO, the European Road Safety Charter for DG MOVE or the ‘We love eating’ pilot-project for DG SANCO.
