“Triangular World has had the pleasure of working with The Corporate Story/Jonathan Steffen Limited since our inception five years ago. Jonathan and Harriet have taken time to understand what we do, so their style and wording suggestions are very useful to us and are often followed verbatim. The team at Corporate Story are always responsive to our often time-constrained needs. The speed needed by us does not detract from the quality of their output, and thus we have built up a relationship of trust. Finally, they always seem pleased to hear from us, even we are setting those improbable timeline-based tasks!”

John Hall

Founder, Triangular World

“Jonathan is an extremely pleasant person to work with. His questions are challenging enough to make you think in different ways. This has been extremely helpful for our work on country public investments for nutrition – a technical topic that is so instrumental to the daily life and the results of children, mothers and communities at large. Jonathan and Harriet make you feel welcome and comfortable about discussing ideas, ensuring that a narrative is created even from the hardest of topics. I look forward to doing more work with them.”

Patrizia Fracassi

Senior Nutrition Analyst and Strategy Advisor, SUN Movement Secretariat

“My colleagues and I have drawn on the support of Jonathan and his team to help develop two major specialist publications: The Road to Good Nutrition¸ published by Karger in 2013 and the winner of a British Medical Association Book Award in 2014, and Good Nutrition: Perspectives for the 21st century, which appeared from Karger in 2016. Jonathan helped shape both publications, making the discussion of complex nutrition issues accessible to a non-specialist readership as well as to experts in the field. Jonathan’s work as a thinker, writer and editor is complemented by the project management skills of Harriet Burgham, which help to keep even the most complex of editorial processes on tack.”

Manfred Eggersdorfer

Senior Vice President Nutrition Science & Advocacy, DSM Nutritional Products, and Professor for Healthy Ageing, University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG)

“I have worked with Jonathan Steffen and his team on a few projects including a mainstream nutrition publication and a high level United Nations food systems report. Jonathan is an exceptional editor and his team brings publications from zero drafts to final products with high organizational skill and professionalism. Jonathan is particularly special. Not only is he an amazing copy editor and writer, he can take notes written on the back of a napkin and create a beautiful chapter that is intriguing and reads well. On both projects, I have consulted with him, not only on editorial issues, but also on overall content, messaging to the audience and intent. He brings to life our best work.”

Bloomberg Distinguished Associate Professor of Ethics and Global Food & Agriculture at the Johns Hopkins University, and Director of the Global Food Ethics and Policy Program

“The team at Jonathan Steffen Limited supported me with the publication of an English version of a book that had originally appeared in Japanese. As well as offering sound advice, they provided the editorial, proofreading, and project management services that ensured the final product was a success. I was kept up to date and fully consulted on all key matters throughout the course of the project, which reassured me that the book was in safe hands. I would recommend the services of this editorial agency to anyone considering creating a specialist publication which has to meet high technical standards and be delivered to a strict deadline.”

Fernando Cisneros-Gonzalez

Global Layers and Carotenoid Manager, DSM Nutritional Products

“Jonathan Steffen is a writer with high editorial standards and a deep understanding of the magazine development process. Although not a scientist himself, he helps to make the work of leading thinkers in the nutrition space accessible to a wide audience through his role with Sight and Life magazine. Readership surveys have provided excellent feedback on the quality and clarity of the magazine’s writing, and Jonathan’s efforts have made a major contribution here.”

Klaus Kraemer

Managing Director, Sight and Life Foundation

“To be able to explain your business through speeches, messages and the use of storytelling is essential for any company today. Jonathan Steffen provided very valuable support in this field during my time with Shell European Oil Products.”

Olaf Ljøsne

Former Director External Affairs North Europe, Shell European Oil Products

“Having worked with Jonathan Steffen for four years at DMS as editorial, design and translation lead for our global corporate newsletter, I can attest to the elevated level of creativity and professionalism of Jonathan and his team. This group acted as our communication consultants as we documented many happenings in the business, and launched many excellence initiatives across our organization in five countries. Jonathan and his team worked easily with each of our functional teams to bring concise and interesting news to our entire employee family.”

Guy Tiene

Former Director of Corporate Communications, DSM Pharmaceutical Products

“Together with Jonathan, I was able to set up the company magazine for DSM Pharmaceuticals, called DPP World. Jonathan made a very professional-looking magazine and was very instrumental in driving new issues for several years. At a later stage, we also managed to develop a special formula for our site in Italy, which was fully bilingual (English/Italian). The magazine helped to grow the team spirit and self-confidence of this site and was also instrumental in bridging the language barrier.”

Anita Maassen

Former Senior Director HR, DSM

“Jonathan has a lot of experience, he is a very innovative person and always advises positively on new  ways of doing things. He is always on time, delivering very good quality, and the professional relationship with him is very easy and convenient.”

Maria del Mar Arteaga

“I would definitely recommend Jonathan Steffen as an editor and a consultant. I worked with him for eight years and it was always a pleasure. He is efficient, creative, and on time, and he has very elaborated written skills and a great sense of British humour. One of the thing I also really appreciated working with him is that I did not have to brief him too much as he was picking up problems and offering effective solutions very quickly.”

Charlotte Frederiksen

Former External Communications Manager, DSM Nutritional Products

“Jonathan supported me in a major software release project. He brought great insights that enhanced our change communications, while his international experience served the team well as we worked between Europe and the United States. Jonathan is a real professional and is very good to work with.”

George Noon

Former Director Corporate Communications, Air Products Inc.

“Working with Jonathan has been a great pleasure. His experience in marketing and communication was a great asset in helping me to keep focused on strategic objectives and not lose track. He was always able to fully understand what I needed and to gently elaborate on this until he reached the best possible solution. I enjoyed working with such a professional person as Jonathan and have no doubt that many people share my same opinion.”

Sabrina Borghi

Former Global Business and Commercial Manager Nutritional Lipids, DSM Nutritional Products

“Jonathan is a dedicated corporate communications professional. The quality of his work (in Sight and Life and other DSM publications that I have read) speaks for itself. Based on my interactions with him, I have found him to be meticulous in translating complex technical and scientific concepts into layperson’s language without compromising on substance.”

Venkatesh Mannar

Former President, Micronutrient Initiative

“I have worked together with Jonathan a couple of times, and his creativity and marketing professionalism were far beyond average. Great pleasure to work with him.”

Fons Trompenaars

Partner, People & Change, KPMG

“Jonathan is a very reliable and professional communication expert. He is a magician with text. Although not always knowledgeable on the detailed technical subjects, he is able to swiftly grasp the gist of the subjects. He is open to feedback and willing to give feedback himself based on real-life experiences. I enjoyed working with Jonathan a lot, and will certainly consider hiring him and his team for future projects and businesses.”
