My engineering background means that I grasp technical subjects quickly and am able to extract the key points and present them at the right level for either a technical or a non-technical audience.
I am extremely numerate and can present numerical information clearly and accurately with appropriate graphics.
I can provide guidance on search engine optimisation.
I can turn copy round fast for all types of marketing material, technical brochures, manuals, white papers and websites.
Area Covered: Northern England and Scotland and remote working
Summary: I have spent the last twelve years writing reports providing strategic advice on the telecoms industry for large companies. These have always been accompanied by press releases and short articles for websites and newsletters produced to length and to deadline. I have also written white papers and marketing brochures for Telecoms companies.
Prior to that I spent a decade working on European Commission research projects which necessitated writing proposals for funding applications as well as reports for a specialist audience who did not have English as a first language.
Some of my early technical writing jobs included software documentation and recruitment brochures.
