MEET SOME HAPPY CUSTOMERS WHO CAN NOW GET BACK TO THEIR REAL JOBS...
I have used TKO on numerous occasions to help clarify and present strategies to business partners, technology leaders and the broader IT organization. TKO has always come through for me on this. They have been able to take complex technology concepts and break them down into precise, clearly articulated messages that was understood by all groups. This has been instrumental in aligning the overall organization to a vision and goal and has allowed us to make tremendous strides towards our overall strategy. I would highly recommend TKO to anyone who needs to get a message out in a clear and concise manner.

Kirsten and TKO have helped to create high quality communications materials for several high profile technology projects that I have led at Mercer. The most recent materials included a commercial-quality brochure for the client profitability tool that her team designed for the rollout to the 3,000+ client facing teams around the globe and that were also handed out during regional “road shows”. TKO took a complex concept and distilled the content to four pages of highly visual diagrams and graphics that explained the importance of the system and it’s methodology to an audience of senior executives. In addition to this work, TKO has created many user guides, quick reference guides, product announcements and related materials for a variety audiences, including the technical staff, Finance end-users and client-facing teams. They takes a very active role in understanding the salient points of what needs to be communicated, asking many questions about the business purpose and end-user expectations which greatly improves the quality of the final product. They have been our go-to communications specialists whenever there is a high profile and complex product to be rolled out.

I’ve used TKO’s services on multiple occasions and have always been pleased with the finished products produced. TKO’s ability to transform newly learned financial systems knowledge into accurate, thorough and user-friendly documents continually impresses me. TKO’s robust communications solutions are used to facilitate training for hundreds of users across global, enterprise-wide financial systems. Feedback (from users & trainers) is particularly positive as manuals are filled with clear, concise text and helpful screen images. TKO’s documents have directly reduced post-training calls to our global Help desk. I would highly recommend TKO for any technical writing project you may be planning.

TKO was brought on at G4S to help us document and improve some of our key interdepartmental processes. They were very easy to deal with, and quickly provided concise work estimates and key deliverables for each of the processes identified – this included Scheduling, Billing, Procurement and Vendor/Subcontractor Management. TKO is also part of our CGSB certification project team. They continue to provide quality service, and I would not hesitate to recommend TKO to work on any future business communications projects.
Tony Lourenco, Vice President, Operations Support, G4S Canada
TKO has provided an impressive array of business and technical communications services to Brink’s Canada and Brink’s US since 2005. They have been our consistent go-to communications firm for projects large and small – including countless Operations Guides, Training Materials, Desk Manuals and Process documents, in addition to both brainstorming session facilitation and top-line document delivery for a number of Vision & Strategy planning sessions across interconnected Brink’s divisions. We value the way that TKO will jump on an airplane in a moment’s notice to complete a deliverable in record speed, while at the same time delivering consistently high standards. TKO is easy to work with and provides excellent ROI. I would not hesitate to recommend Kirsten and her colleagues for any communications initiative.
Peter Panaritis, President of Brinks Canada
Kirsten and her company provide incredible value to my organization. Kirsten is a communications expert and I have come to rely on TKO for advice in the communications space, as well as delivery on specific initiatives.

Mark MacKenzie, Training Coordinator at The Work Safety Insurance Board (WSIB)
I brought Kirsten and her people in on a very detail-oriented piece of work editing and proof-reading about 1200 pages of operational policies. This material had to be perfect, as we were about to publish it on the web, and we had strict timelines. She and her team did excellent work, and delivered right on time. I’d hire her again.

Assistant Director, Digital Communications at The Work Safety Insurance Board (WSIB)
Marsh and McLennan Companies
Kirsten and her TKO associates approach their client work as though they are solving opportunities for themselves, exhibiting ownership responsibility. I’ve asked for their value added assistance numerous times over the last fifteen years. They structure the work so it can be done in a non-distracting way, but with sufficient input to create the needed value. The work has run the gamut from technical solution reference user guides to divisional enterprise strategic plans.

TKO has earned a solid track record delivering high quality training programs and outstanding documentation across multiple GSK projects. The first phases of our eForm implementation, for example, were a big success due in large part to the combined efforts of the TKO writers involved. TKO’s top-quality writing specialists offered meticulous attention to detail, the ability to get up to speed quickly, and a steady execution of effective communications strategies. In addition, they wore many hats for us – developing key documentation and also facilitating the training itself. TKO’s training sessions have been met with wide praise from trainees and management alike, enabling us to meet and exceed our training targets.

Project Manager (Strategic Sourcing Partnerships) at Glaxo Smith Kline
Canac Global Railway Solutions
TKO was hired by Canac Global Railway Solutions to write, develop, edit and design an on-line Help system for our Marconi client – a leading long distance telecommunications service provider located in Lisbon, Portugal. The project was extremely vast in scope as it involved the integration of 131 separate telecommunications software applications. It was mandatory that TKO understand the intricacies of each application quickly in order to correctly reflect end-user sensibilities and needs. TKO was also expected to manage the flow of information from a wide variety of developers plus stay on top of configuration changes throughout the development process. TKO met and exceeded all project deadlines completing work on time with excellent quality results.
Director of Operations at Canac Global Railway Solutions
We are and have been extremely happy with TKO’s output. I plan to highly recommend TKO for additional project work within Humana. Solutions provided have been fast, goal-oriented and reliable. Thank you for helping to make this project a resounding success.
Project Manager (General Ledger Conversion Project) at Humana Inc.
I worked with Kirsten at a large HR consulting company in Hoboken, New Jersey where TKO was engaged to write training and system documentation for an Hyperion Planning implementation. Kirsten was a quick study on the software and conducted herself professionally at every stage of the project. She was patient with those of us who had to change our scheduled meeting times with her due to project conflicts and reacted without pause when portions of the system had to be changed…. Which directly impacted her deliverable. Her work product was complete and accurate, one of the best I have seen. I would recommend Kirsten to anyone looking for excellent documentation and training products. I look forward to working with her again.
