Good writing skills are essential in both business and academic life. Whether you can convey ideas, strategies, proposals and arguments depends largely on the quality of your written work. Well-written documents pave the way to success. Poor work can damage hard-won reputations.
Paul edits theses, dissertations, papers, reports, proposals and other important documents. Marked-up manuscripts are scanned and returned to clients, who then also have the opportunity to discuss the comments, corrections and suggestions over Skype, facetime or similar.
Paul has worked as a technical communicator, trainer and consultant for 30 years. He studied both electronic engineering and English, followed by an MBA at the London Business School. After periods at two UK technical publications contractors, he started the specialist consultancy Peterborough Technical Communication, offering technical writing, editing, communication training and consultancy services. Paul is a former Vice-President of the UK’s Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators and was the visiting lecturer in Technical writing and editing at the University of Twente from 2003 – 2018. He has also taught at Eindhoven University of Technology and within many commercial organisations.
