I have had the privilege of working with some of the best in the business. Here is what a few of them have to say about me.

Nicky Bell
Chief Executive
Saatchi & Saatchi NZ

“Anne and I worked together for three years while she was employed at Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand as Creative Group Head.

I liked Anne from the moment I met her and set about making it my business to convince her to join us. It was clear that she was smart, insightful and a talent with a unique and passionate view on what great work should look like.

Anne joined us very early in my tenure as CEO - just as we began to work on the reinvention of the agency.  It certainly wasn’t always an easy journey, in fact it was often extremely challenging, but it was made better for the fact that Anne was with us.  She maintained her support and belief in where we could take our agency and played a big part in helping us evolve and re-energise the culture.

Beyond her talent as a writer (and strategic thinker), Anne is a wonderful mentor to young teams in the business. They thrive under her guidance and leadership. Likewise Anne formed very tight and effective partnerships with strategists and account leaders and patiently guided some of the more junior account people along the way.

So if you are considering working with Anne, you should. You won't regret it.”

Digital Project Manager







"Anne Boothroyd worked under my direct supervision at Saatchi & Saatchi for a period of two years ending in May 2013. During that period, I had the great pleasure of seeing her create and craft campaigns that stood out and made an impact.

Anne is a hard-working self-starter who invariably understands exactly what a project is all about from the outset, and how to get it done quickly and effectively. During her time as Creative Group Head, I cannot remember an instance where she missed a major deadline.

Anne is a resourceful, creative and solution-orientated person who was frequently able to come up with new and innovative approaches to her assigned projects. She functioned extremely well as a team leader, and she also worked effectively as a mentor to other young talent in the department.

On the interpersonal side, Anne has superior written and verbal communication skills. She gets along extremely well with staff under her supervision, as well as colleagues at her own level. She is highly respected, as both a person and a professional, by colleagues, employees, suppliers and clients alike.

In closing, as detailed above, based on my experience working with her, I can unreservedly recommend Anne to you for any position."  

"I've worked with Anne as a freelance resource on creative strategy, brand platform development and copy executions for online, radio and social media. 

She's a fantastic creative with senior level experience and big picture thinking but also has the ability to deliver the detail. Her work on the creative briefs has always been insightful and refreshing. And equally, as a writer, the long copy content she pens is engaging and well crafted. 

I'm more than happy to recommend Anne in her current capacity as a freelance creative for hire. She's a huge talent normally reserved for big corporate clients with big budgets so it's amazing to have access to her skills at an hourly rate!"
