Wellington Branch Lunchtime Event - Technically Plain

Wellingtonians! Come and hear one of New Zealand’s best writing trainers talk about plain English and how it relates to technical writing.

Tim Sheehan, from Write Limited, will be presenting a fast-paced lunchtime seminar about how information can be complex and the dangers of not thinking about your audience. In this seminar, Tim will share some easy ways to make your information more usable and reader-focused.

You’ll come away with ideas for making the process of technical writing easier and more enjoyable. You’ll also find out how you can make your writing easier to read, understand, and act on for the reader.

About the presenter

Tim’s passion for language is wide-reaching. He loves presenting to groups on any topic related to language. He enjoys the challenge of rewriting instruction manuals into simple language (and has spent many hours doing so). He’s also taught English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) across the globe.

When he’s not busy with work, Tim is also a keen sportsman and loves fishing. He spends a lot of time fishing from his kayak, but admits he hasn’t caught anything… yet. “I’ve caught a lot of seaweed. My wife refers to me as ‘the world’s worst fisherman’. But one day I’m going to prove her wrong!”
