“The Word Association are that rarest of things: a competent and capable company delivering professional solutions to communications problems – with a smile. We employed Mark and Yvonne to support out Year of COP activity. With a requirement for both interviewing/copywriting and event management, the project provided the perfect outlet for their combined talents.

Nothing was too much trouble and requests (which sometimes deviated quite widely from the project’s scope) were met with good humour and delivered with aplomb.

I would have no hesitation in recommending their services, and hope to make use of them again in future at Scottish Renewables.”

Director of Communications and Strategy, Scottish Renewables


“I had the pleasure of working with Yvonne to deliver the SiMBA Butterfly Remembrance Event series. With only a six-week lead in, she coordinated and ensured the delivery of 11 individual events working with 221 volunteers and supporting over 1,000 bereaved individuals. She was an unflappable, consummate professional that I hope I have the opportunity to work with again in the future.”

Service Manager, SiMBA Charity


“The Club worked with Mark and Yvonne Alexander at The Word Association in 2015 to assist predominantly with its media strategy prior to the 2015 AAM Scottish Open which was hosted at Gullane. Their expertise was invaluable to the Club in the preparation of key media messages for both traditional and social media, writing the Club’s media pack for the event and the writing and distribution of subject specific press releases during 2015.

The Word Association also worked with Club providing copywriting and photography services for the upgrade of the Club’s website which was launched in January 2015.

Mark and Yvonne are a great team to work with – not only for their media expertise but for their enthusiasm and energy too.”

Commercial Manager, Gullane Golf Club

“Yvonne knows her market and how to keep her finger on the pulse of the world of golf. Her style not only works, but it is both energetic and fun. When one idea is launched, she is already working on the next five. She is an important part of the Modry Las team.”

“I have known Yvonne for some years now. She has an enthusiastic and positive character which makes it very enjoyable and fun to work with her. She shows a lot of passion for her PR work, which comes across as soon as you meet her. Yvonne handles her business with a nice mixture of competence and friendliness. Her organization is always top class.”

“Mark has written for Golf Course Architecture on a number of occasions. His copy is always tight, always to point, and always to deadline. I only wish I could commission him more often.”
