Time to spruce up your writing

If you’d like to improve your writing, you might like these tips here (link to: medium.com).

The author suggests we:

  1. cut out the word “that”;
  2. delete the words “I think”;
  3. avoid words ending in “-ing”;
  4. write short sentences and short paragraphs (we’ve spoken about this before); and
  5. start with a short opening sentence to make it more compelling.

 

Working on your presentation skills

How can you become a better presenter? You’ll find some great tips here that might be able to help you.

Some of my favourites? I like the idea of structuring a presentation like a detective story, finding inspiration from some of the best, designing a slide deck with love, and working with simple slides (they’re much more powerful than overcrowded ones).
