I've made documents for

and I would love to help you .

Imagine this: you’re sending out a report or a presentation, and instead of it being just another document, it tells a story. Your story. That’s what I do. I take the plain, everyday documents you use in your business and give them a makeover, so they don’t just share information, they show off your brand’s personality and values. Whether it’s for government departments or upscale businesses, my job is to make your documents look good and work even better. It’s about taking what you want to say and presenting it in a way that grabs attention and keeps it. From the first chat about what you’re looking for to the final product, I’m all about making sure your brand stands out. My clients have seen the difference a bit of thoughtful design can make, turning every document into an opportunity to connect and impress. Let’s make your documents more than just paperwork.

Course

Make Better Documents

Quick and Simple Fixes Anyone Can Do

I put together an easy to follow along course with tips to improve your documents. It is just just about the look of the document but how well they function. And some tips to improve readability. 

 

I understand how busy you are so I have condensed over two decades of learning this stuff for myself into a course you can go through in an afternoon. There is even a checklist so after you have done the learnings, you can follow along with the steps.

 

Course is an instant download straight to your computer, no log-ins or websites.

Have an important document that needs to look better?

It is easy to get overwhelmed. There are so many things you could do to make a document look better. But where to start? Don’t have time to learn all the ins and outs of Graphic Design? This course will teach you some basic back-end things, how to add in way-finding and some tricks to help improve the readability of your content.

Is this course right for me?

Have you ever sent someone a document that didn’t get the result you were after? Would they have trusted a better looking document more? Would they have read all of it and understood it if it was easier to look through? Could you charge more if it was better?


Being able to create great documents is just as important as being able to speak clearly. This skill will pay dividends for the rest of your life.

Course is broken up into three parts:

Back-end things

Quick changes in the back end can make huge improvements to your document. Get these things right to start with.
1

Way-finding

Don't make your document difficult to navigate. Follow a couple of simple steps that will make navigation easy.
2

Content

Some simple tips to make sure your content shines. Learn some tricks that will improve readability. This is the visual stuff.
3

Use these skills everywhere.

What you’re going to learn here will work for you in all sorts of applications. We’ll be using Word, but you can follow along in Google Docs or Pages.

Group Coaching

Monthly Online Workshops

Do you learn better by seeing and going through a process? The first Tuesday of the month I run an online workshop where I’ll help you go through your documents to find ways to improve them. As a group, you share your document and other business owners will share theirs. The whole workshop goes for only 30 minutes and is very casual. My aim is offer everyone a chance to share their document and be given a fix to implement. Numbers are capped at 15 participants so I can help you with your document worries.

 

There are 10 things I make sure to do to every document that I follow along with. And these tweaks in combination can lead to serious #documenttransformation. 

Speaker

Have me as a guest speaker

I would love to talk to your audience about the importance of having good documents. It is not just that it is good for business (people pay more for better quality) but good for your confidence. I’ve seen my clients that teach others increase their rates after they had their workbooks redesigned. 


I could seriously talk about documents and design for hours. I am even a bit controversial in my industry because I truly believe that good design can happen inside PowerPoint and Microsoft Word. I believe it so much, I design templates for my clients in these software packages. I am open to ideas for how I can help you, help your audience.


Below are some suggestions but of course, reach out if you think that together we can help in a way that will have more of an impact.
