“Randy thinks outside the box, but he doesn’t discard the box either. Instead he connects, finds or makes common ground, brings into one project the wildly fantastic and the reassuringly ordinary and treats both with the respect and enthusiasm they deserve. It’s that equal-opportunity enthusiasm, the willingness to go beyond just ‘doing a job’ and to stretch a mundane task into a spiritual undertaking, that really distinguishes his method. An open, inquisitive, and reflective mind is the box from which this Jack springs, and no matter how far outside the box he travels he remains planted in that fertile mentality. It’s a way of doing business that is, in a word, cosmic.”
“His technical ability and knowledge are considerable, and his record in the corporate world speaks for itself, but the factor that sets Randy apart is his ability to incorporate a range of influences and interests into the job at hand, whatever it may be. I know him primarily through his creative work outside the high-tech corridor, yet that work is not truly ‘outside’ the corridor, not separate, for it’s in his nature and method to integrate, to mesh with, to bring all his experience to bear on what he’s currently doing. Randy brings a total person to his work, not just a person with particular business and technical skills, and with high levels of empathy and expertise he can serve well the role he’s undertaken.”

“Employing Randy Kemp’s company was the correct and timely thing to do, to correct my website. The work was done precisely as I’ve required them to do, and in a prompt way. My material was checked throughout all the site links, with accuracy and knowledge of the subject, and the corrections have brought the proper meaning for the site. I would really recommend that company to any one who would like to deal with a knowledgeable and honest company.
Michael Blitchtein – Australia (My first client, from the land down under)
“One of the first things to say about Randy has to be about the depth of his copywriting knowledge and skills. We share a common background in software development and as such, I had the opportunity to offer my advice to him in the past, while also taken some from him on similar topics;” ”BUT As a striving-future-to-be-copywriter I was overwhelmed at the level of know how and the insight Randy has on this subject. While many people preach that a copywriter should write in a seven-grade-language-manner to be better understood, Randy does the opposite and his message still penetrates like a hot knife in the butter even into my sometimes foggy mind. Remember, also, English is for me a Foreign Language, still!” ”My highest recommendation goes to Randy. For any copywriting project I have, I ask for his advice, even if he is too busy to take care of it himself. I suggest you read his blog for a sample of high quality writing.”

Note: Steve and I are connected on Linkedin and had many conversations via Skype. Here’s something you might not know about Steve – he has a Linkedin recommendation (in regards to copywriting) from Joseph Sugarman – the legendary copywriter, author, entrepreneur, and marketer.
“Randy Kemp’s writing is a surreal gumbo of adventure, humor, and philosophy. In Coyote Dreams (working title) he blends Native American mythology, world religions, and the philosophies of both East and West (and a few points in between), into a witty, darkly humored concoction that entertains, tickles the intellect, and yet manages to give food for thought.”
- Ron Edison – head of Writers at Work in Dupage County (Illinois, USA)
Note: Ron and I took several creative writing classes together over the years. He’s an excellent mystery and technical writer. I’m confident he will be book touring someday.
“I found Mr. Kemp to be a thoughtful scholar who enjoyed the challenge of seeking and evaluating new ideas.”

“Thanks for attending the conference and writing about it. It looks like you are a thinker and creative writer.”
- Preveen Gupta – author of Business Innovation in the 21st Century, and Business Innovation Conference organizer
“I have personally worked with Randy on a few projects in Motorola – he is a very good team player, analytically strong, has exceptional patience and determination, and adept at finding solutions to challenging problems. On the personal front, I have known him to be a spiritual seeker with a penchant for exploring different facets of spiritual life.”
Prabhu Vaidhyanathan Santhanagopalan – Services Business Practices Group Manager at Microsoft, India
“Randy is self-motivated, self-disciplined, responsible in meeting commitments, and able to complete a tremendous amount of reading and writing, while working full-time.”
- Elaine Q Nelson, Ph.D. – regional graduate psychology faculty advisor, Norwich University (the United States’ oldest, private military college)
“Randy has the ability to relate to a situation and to people like no person I have ever met. He can produce the most articulate and accurate products, ranging from sales letters to entire marketing campaigns like a second nature. My pleasurable experience working with him over the last couple of years has been life alternating and most valuable. He is also humorous, versatile and intelligent, making him an absolute asset anyone can benefit from.”
Richard Nelson – Independent Writer and Management Consultant
“Everyone on the team brought so much passion to Positive; it was amazing. The annual report did more than write-up who we are, it also refreshed us to have this group of strangers come in and care about our organization. This project came at just the right time in our organizations’ history. These volunteers brought a whole different level of volunteerism.”

Note: I have completed a Taproot Foundation project in March 2009, where I was the copywriter. This was for a non-profit agency annual report, with a creative team from various agencies.
