Travel for perspective

Travel for perspective

I work with many writers in complex and technical fields who have to continuously write about a specialist topic. This can be a theme such as Social Protection or it can be the type of document such a s a formal report or an audit or an evaluation. 

Information no longer lives in hidden silos or on dusty library bookshelves. Almost everything written (in some of the agencies I work for) finds its way quite quickly into the public domain via the Internet. 

This is a potential disaster for the writer who had in mind a much more selective audience. 

So it is like my trip to France today. Looking at new sights, experiencing new ways of doing things, talking to new people – I get an understanding of the audience I need to reach and the perspective that needs to change. I stick my head out of the silo. 

Audience is king and if what you are writing doesn’t mean anything to your audience then you have wasted your time and, more worryingly, you have wasted theirs.

#LIVMUN goalless but @Alissonbecker as usual makes the difference when @LFC can’t score. It’s tough this year @SkySportsPL

Some early morning encouragement from #AppleWatch - I wish everyone else was so positive #sundayvibes

A cube with 43 quintillion combinations, only one of which is correct. From 1974 to a walk to school in 2021. Samu can solve it no time but never stops looking for new ways 👏. Must be a lesson in there.
