I want to say hello but I don’t have time. I have to get onto explaining that this is a place for turning your writing into a tool for success at work. And everything I say has to use smart words because, like me, you won’t have time to waste. You may be reading this post on the way to work or as your last task of the day. Whatever you’re doing now, you’ll soon move on to something else. And that’s what your readers do too: they move on, and fast.
So, this blog is here to help you write faster, smarter and better. It is about you taking control of your writing to achieve things. I will focus on workplace writing (see my Training hub), but you can use many of my ideas for personal writing (even your own blog). Whatever your writing skills, and whatever your goals, I want you to take a step up. Start to think about how words are created, used and manipulated in our small world, and how you need to be part of that writing evolution from your own desk.
And now that’s done, I can say hello and welcome!

Hi Rachael – so much to think about after reading this. The issue of communicating with non-English speakers is a key one for me, but your point about challenging the ‘traditional’ also has me staggered by the challenges faced. I still love the ‘right’ way of doing things – proper syntax/spelling/grammar etc, But the issue of communication is the key – are we getting what we want to get across to our many and varied audiences. I am going to have to think about this!
