About the tutor, Helen Steemson

With a bit of help, anyone can learn to express themselves clearly in writing. That’s what Helen Steemson believes, anyway. And after ten years running courses for some of New Zealand’s largest brands, including ASB, Sovereign Insurance, Griffin’s Food Company, Lotto NZ and Farmers NZ, she should know.

Helen designed and facilitates the most popular course offered by Marketing NZ, and she’s received excellent scores – and only excellent scores – in every category, from thousands of participants. She also spent some successful stints teaching copywriting at Auckland University of Technology.

As creative director of Words for Breakfast, her skills are constantly sharpened at the coalface of the industry.
