What others say about us
"We wanted to celebrate our 5th anniversary with a compelling story about who we are and where we are going. Not just a dull mission statement, but something that is genuinely personal and strategic at the same time. Ilja wrote the content for our special corporate magazine and got it just right. His articles capture the essence of our business, people and our identity in a crisp style that is a joy to read."
Eija Ailasmaa, CEO of Sanoma Magazines
"Lucid Communication practices what it preaches: 'Capture. Deliver. Excel.' Ilja van Roon finds the essence in a jumble of thoughts and phrases it just right. He is not afraid to ask criticial questions and get to the bottom of things. Ilja immerses himself in his client's organisation and the audiences that he writes for. He helped us to make Krauthammer's tacit knowledge more explicit."
Thijs Westerkamp, Managing Partner of Krauthammer International
"Ilja is sharp, fast and easy to work with. During the merger that created Geodis Wilson, he elicited who we were and where we were going. He gave us a clear story to tell staff, customers and suppliers, something genuine we could all rally behind."
Peter Nevhagen, Chief Marketing Officer at Geodis Wilson
"I am impressed with the speed at which projects get accomplished. Once a decision has been made to utilize Ilja, the interview or article gets done in no time. I don’t need to be concerned that I will be misunderstood, so I don't have to spend a lot of time reviewing his work.”
Dave Kulik, CEO of CEVA Logistics
"Ilja van Roon is well accepted as a consultant by our executive-level managers. He is naturally inquisitive and genuinely interested in the knowledge and ideas of others. And he is quick to get to the bottom of things, which makes him efficient, effective and a joy to work with."
Karel D. Waagenaar, CEO and Founder of W&S Transition and Interim Management
"Ilja's keen insight, dedication, incredible talent and great sense of humor make working with him a great experience that yields excellent results!"
Dennis Hettema, CEO of OP3
"We hired Ilja for an assignment with a very tight schedule. He worked with us through nights and weekends to deliver in time. Nevertheless, the end result was of very high quality, even though Ilja was new to several complex subjects. I strongly recommend using Ilja for your English business writing and editing, we will definitely do so again."
Sander Merckx, partner of the consultancy firm Mieloo & Alexander
"What makes Lucid Communication so good at business writing is the understanding of business in general and corporate communication in particular. This allows them to develop stategic business writing that builds organisational reputation. I recommend Lucid Communication to any organisation that needs to approach its stakeholders in a focused, valued-added way."
"Quick, insightful editing that improves on the structure and flow of any article you send to him."
Dr. Karl Moore, Marketing and Strategy Professor at McGill University, Canada; voted by Business Strategy Review as one of the world's 20 greatest business thinkers.
"Ilja writes well in English, combining an admirably crisp style with an in depth understanding of the issues that managers and leaders have to deal with."
