Working with the 'voice rebrand' team at Lippincott, I helped reshape the major collateral pieces for Bank of America's employee healthcare benefits. The objective was to recast the messaging, tone, and point of view in BofA's newly adopted 'Human Era' voice.
For Accenture's flagship client magazine, "Outlook," I wrote this feature article/case study about Accenture's work with Promontory Interfinancial Network, a start-up company with a new technology and products approach for US community banks. The article is written with a very stylish intro, and was one of 21 articles I wrote for "Outlook" from April 2003 until mid-2006. It was also one of 53 projects of all kinds for Accenture, including the company's 2004 and 2005 annual reports.
