My name is alex van tol

And I have a way with words. Stories that are engaging, concise, precise,

and that leave people curious to know more.

I speak. I write. I edit. I inspire.

 

Let’s go.

about me

Speaker

TED doesn’t lie. Speakers are the most powerful way to push new thinking. Bring me in. And watch me move the needle.

Writer

It’s crowded out there. You need authentic, engaging writing that grabs people by the scruff. Clean. Credible. Edgy.

Storyteller

Thirteen books and counting. Social media. Anxiety and mental health. Cyberbullying. Risk taking. Biodiversity. More.

Working with Alex was a joy from start to finish! Our project required both a technical and welcoming writing style, which Alex succeeded at producing. The project was lengthy, and Alex maintained her motivation and attention to detail throughout. Alex Van Tol comes highly recommended and we hope to work with her again!   Colleen Miller, Director of Sport Development, Rowing Canada Aviron

Alex is among the best writers I have ever worked with. She can write well in any style, from technical and government documents to lively magazine features to children’s books. Her style is fresh, clean and a bit sassy. Best of all, her copy is clean—almost no editing required! Diane Dakers, (former) Communications Manager, Royal BC Museum

Alex has shown great dexterity in listening to and understanding our needs, wants and directions, no matter how disjointed they were. She displayed the ability to distill our information into a thorough yet easy-to-understand planning document. The outcome was one of the Authority’s strongest business plans yet. It provided key information to our stakeholders, but also served as a road map for our operational teams as they worked toward achieving our annual goals.   Dan Stefanson,
Vice President Strategic Services,Consumer Protection BC
Alex is an outstanding writer. She is fast, professional and always on time. She has undertaken a number of projects willingly and always provides clean copy with just the right voice. Plus, she makes me laugh.   Andrew Wooldridge, Publisher, Orca Book Publishers
