David Walker, Shorewalker DMS

Our capabilities, people and track record

Who we are and why we merit your trust.

Organisations use Shorewalker DMS to edit, create and promote reports and other content. We write and edit reports, articles and more – in economics, commerce, science and technology. We engage your audience better with your ideas. 

Recently we've created and edited reports and articles for groups including the NSW Productivity Commission, the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), the NSW Innovation and Productivity Council, Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand (CAANZ), the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF), McKinsey & Company, CPA Australia, Xero, Thomson Reuters, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO), KPMG and The CEO Magazine.

The firm was founded on the principle that complex and sensitive content requires careful handling if it is to be communicated effectively to audiences. As well as shaping, authoring and editing content for publication, we have helped to design brands, create online strategies and build online media services.

If you and your organisation operate in professional services, financial services, public policy, academia or membership organisations, we have particular experience that will help with your special needs.
