e.g. Great Events Catering – Susan worked with this business in 2014 as they launched their first fine-dining restaurant, The Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant in Fish Creek Park.  Brought in for her writing skills, Susan helped guide the organization through the essential background key messaging and communication planning before moving into the website design needed to launch their new restaurant in style.


We worked with Elford Communications for the copy writing of the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant’s website. It was very pleasant to work with Susan, her extensive experience and knowledge came across right from the first meeting, so we knew that our website was in the best hands. The content that she created was perfectly tailored to our needs, and the language and tone were absolutely in sync with our audience. In addition, Elford Communications assisted us in developing a communications strategy that would make our website more suitable for our target audience. Other projects have also included writing of press releases and PR consulting. We would recommend Elford Communications in a heartbeat.
