Technical Writing

“Robin worked for me during an engagement at a major Southeastern grocer. I needed someone to come in and intrude into the different tribes and extract knowledge and document it. Well as we all know tribes tend to fortify their fiefdoms when an intruder comes to visit. Robin, completely engaged the leaders and worked with my team to document both basic and difficult process in great detail. Robin reviewed the documented processes with the key stakeholders and won them over. Robin is able to walk into uncharted fiefdoms and document their processes all while bringing unity to teams and driving management strategy.

I have said all of this to say Robin is a great asset to have on your team!

“I worked with Robin at MorphoTrust USA when she was contracted to assist us with technical writing related to some intensive SOP documentation we were working on. Robin was quick to understand the complex UX and software development process details and produced high quality, well written documentation, within the structure we were seeking. She was very productive in her work. She also has a great sense of humor and was a lot of fun to work with.”

Nathan Lockwood, MorphoTrust USA

“I have known Robin Coles since 2009 and it is my pleasure to work with her. She possesses great knowledge of the recreational marine industry and is a talented writer, marketer and consultant. For example, Robin’s work with The Nautical Lifestyle is a great aid to all new and experienced boaters in addition to the marine business community. Her skills transcend the marine industry and I highly recommend her for any marketing or creative writing projects a business or individual may need.”

Jim Coburn, Coburn and Associates

Interviews of Subject Matter Experts (SME’s)

“Robin, I found the audio interview with the Winthrop Harbormaster on your website extremely informative.  There is nothing out there that provides anything like this.  I liked how I could listen to what was happening with the town pier while working at my desk.

I would recommend the site for anyone who is interested in gaining a better insight on waterfront issues affecting the town.  Often there is a lot of misinformation floating around, and this helps to get news straight from the source.

I hope to see more of this type of content on the website in the future!”

Eric Gaynor, Executive Director,Winthrop Chamber of Commerce


“Robin G Coles performed work of outstanding quality as a professional photographer for Ipevo, Inc. Robin G. Coles’ works were exhibited at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada January 8 – 11, 2009 in the context of the Ipevo booth and promotion of the Kaleido digital frame.

In addition to excellent photographs, Robin G Coles provided excellent communication throughout the project (which ran December 2008 to January 2009), listening carefully to our requirements both on subject matter and format, and sent all deliverables in a timely matter. She was very responsive and went out of her way to deliver outstanding service and photographs. It was a pleasure working with Robin G Coles, and I highly recommend her work.”

Caroline Andreolle, Marketing Specialist Ipevo, Inc.

Robin Coles has impressed me very much as a friend and an advocate to the marine industry. Her website TheNauticalLifestyle.com has become a work of “internet art” for the average boater.

I listened to her discussions with industry experts that are the basis for her book and was totally impressed at the quality of her participating experts, their knowledge and Robin’s ability to ask the right questions, as well as her follow up questions.

Anyone seeking to purchase a new boat or intending to buy a larger boat should have her book in their library.
