Project Management

[The Iceland Writers Retreat] was the organizers’ love letter to Iceland. ... I would strongly recommend this retreat, especially for beginner writers. My week there was an inspiring mix of craft and sightseeing.

Katrina Woznicki, Iceland Writers Retreat 2014 Participant

Knockout performance for a first-time conference; everything was fabulous.

Diane, Iceland Writers Retreat 2014 Participant

Renate, Iceland Writers Retreat 2014 Participant

One of my top three best travel and workshop experiences of my life. Will always remember this remarkable experience.

Anne, Iceland Writers Retreat 2014 Participant

Eliza is an excellent organizer, both professional and friendly and with a high regard for the end result of the project. I worked with Eliza on the organisation of the launch of ESU Iceland. It was a complex and challenging task involving delegates from multiple countries, high level speakers and special guests such as ambassadors. Eliza was brilliant and adaptable and the event was a huge success.

Annette Fisher, former Head of International at the English-Speaking Union, London, UK

I knew from the start that Eliza was the right person for the role of Chair of ESU Iceland. When she took over from me in 2009 she started using her amazing organisational skills to drive our group forward in a structured and efficient way and motivated everyone to put in their best effort. She's been enthusiastic, highly organised, bubbling with ideas and energy and in every way the key to the success of ESU so far in Iceland. We wouldn't be where we are today without her.

Sigurður Darri Skúlason, Chair, ESU Iceland (2008)

I found [this DVD] to be a unique and marvellous insight into this chapter of WW2. I particularly liked the poems, humour and the focus on the human aspect of life during the convoys. The editing of the veterans’ accounts interspersed with conference speeches and archive film and photos was done very well.

Chris Erswell, son of WWII veteran, for The Arctic Convoys Commemorative DVD

You and your colleagues are to be congratulated on bringing about this piece of recorded history.

Ron Wren, Chairman, The Arctic Campaign Memorial Trust, for The Arctic Convoys Commemorative DVD

One of the best organised conferences I have attended.

Marketing Communications

Eliza worked with CCP as a writer and part-editor for the company‘s Annual Report. She is professional and helpful, especially patient and supportive with those whose first language is not English. Her organisation skills really aided us in meeting our deadlines throughout. Needless to say, CCP will be calling on Eliza again at the same time next year.

Peri Desai, Corporate Communications Manager, CCP Games

Eliza makes the effort to understand the message that you want to communicate, and then she makes it better. Through our collaboration on Vox Naturae, she has prepared texts for high-level policy makers, international corporations as well as the general public and on every occasion demonstrated a wonderful ability to give it the correct texture and flavor. Eliza goes well beyond the role of copy editing as she comes up with great new ideas of instruments and approaches to communicate our message. She is committed, very efficient and great fun to work with.

Páll A. Davíðsson, co-founder and director of Vox Naturae

The importance of creating clear and succinct text that captures a reader's attention and introduces a company's expertise cannot be overestimated. Nobody has served us better than Eliza in constructing a concise message of that kind. She is imaginative, meticulous and quick thinking.

Inga Sólnes, CEO, Your Host in Iceland

Eliza is highly professional and we have enjoyed an excellent cooperation. She is always ready to help and can take on projects on short notice and yet deliver outstanding results. Eliza has been of great help in terms of writing and translation of our marketing material.

Halldór Kristmannsson, Global Communications and Media Relations, Alvogen

Eliza has worked on several publications for us at Visit Reykjavík. She always delivers 100%, in perfect English and on time, and her marketing experience means she can contribute creatively too. Extremely efficient and dependable, I highly recommend Eliza to anyone in need of professional writing in English.

María Reynisdóttir, former Project Manager for Tourism, Visit Reykjavík

Eliza was a true godsend for us at Crymogea because she is both fast and precise. She is a fine writer with a good feeling for language and style.

Kristján B. Jónasson, Publisher, Crymogea

We at Calidris really enjoy working with Eliza. She's creative, organised and gets things done. I am very pleased with the work she produces for us.

Magnús Ingi Óskarsson, CEO, Calidris (now part of Sabre)

Reykjavík University has been lucky to collaborate with Eliza and the service we have gotten is superb. Eliza not only proofreads but she also uses a lot of critical thinking, thus improving the texts she works with.

Margrét Jónsdóttir Njarðvík, former Director of International Affairs, Reykjavík University

It’s great working with Eliza, because she has the experience and skills to capture the tone, style and idiom to make your writing pro.

Þorsteinn Garðarsson, CEO, Action Day

Eliza's experience in journalism, sales and marketing is invaluable when it comes to writing an entertaining and lively text. She is ambitious, meticulous and precise and it is extremely rewarding to work with her. I have recommended her to all I know who could possibly use her services.

Svanlaug Jóhannsdóttir, former Project Manager, Klak - Innovation Centre

I have worked with Eliza on various projects and without exception she brings new ideas and added value to the products beyond the written text. She’s a true pro, works fast and brings quality work every time.

Jónas Þorbergsson, Graphic Designer, Fínlína

Bad English can, as they say, mean bad business. We at Iceland Express put our trust in Eliza who has frequently prevented us from inadvertently saying something incredibly silly on our English website and in our email newsletters to thousands of Europeans. You should too.

Valgeir Valdimarsson, former User Experience Director, Iceland Express

Eliza has worked with us on the company's annual report, newsletter and other material. She is innovative, writes in a clear and lucid manner, and delivers all assignments efficiently and on time.
