Sonia Jamoulle, Head of Communications, Sanlam Investments
Sharon Wood reported to me (in my current capacity as head of communications) at Sanlam Investments in 2014. Sharon was responsible for all retail, institutional and corporate communications at Sanlam Investments when I joined.
Sharon is one of those individuals you want on your team and would be a tremendous asset to any company that would like to make use of her writing and communications expertise. Not only is Sharon able to research, understand and write highly technical articles, she also has an extremely sought-after creative flair – which is difficult to find in technical writers. She is well regarded in the SA financial services industry for her writing, media and public relations skills.
In addition, Sharon is completely trustworthy, reliable, well-organised and can perform very well under pressure. She’s able to work completely independently and takes responsibility for ensuring the job gets done. She is also flexible and willing to work on any project assigned to her.
I highly recommend Sharon Wood for any communications related work. I am able to provide specific examples of her expertise if needed.
Varusha Daljee, Portfolio Manager, Sithega
Sharon Wood has consulted to Sithega for the last 6 months. We have used her on different projects. The more serious and professional writing was in respect of our media communication and developing our information memorandum. The lighter and more personable writing was in respect of our customer solutions. Sharon has managed to vary her tone and style to keep us relevant to our target audience.
Being an experienced financial writer across a range of topics from the financial services industry, asset management, financial markets, economics through to fintech, Sharon really understands our business and requires minimal briefing.
I worked with Sharon in a corporate environment when she was the head of communications at an asset manager. As a former journalist, she was incredibly easy to deal with and professional in everything she delivered. She is a skilled writer and editor and has a depth of knowledge and insight in these areas. But more than that, Sharon knows how to connect with people. She reaches her audience. This combination is not easy to find.
Jenny Mackay, founder and director, Linktank
Sharon Wood is a skilled and experienced writer, spanning a broad range of complex financial subjects. Her professional history as a financial journalist, corporate communications specialist, and entrepreneur, fortifies her credibility.
Sharon has worked closely with Linktank, and its clients – financial technology providers and financial services providers – since January, when she became a communications consultant. Her insightful writing is highly regarded, and her service is impeccable.
