Presentation on technical writing in Lean and Agile environments

Cherryleaf’s co-founder, Ellis Pratt, will be speaking at the next meeting of the ISTC’s Southern Area Group. The event will be on Tuesday 17th May at The Keep, 29 Castle Street, Guildford, GU1 3UW from 7pm. Ellis will speak on Technical Writing in Lean and Agile environments. He’ll explain how to rise to the challenge of writing user documentation in an Agile environment and how Lean and Agile could be used to manage writing projects.

Doors open at 7pm, and Ellis’s talk will start around 7.30pm. Afterwards there will be the usual opportunity for questions, for serious discussion, or light-hearted chat, depending on your mood and inclination.

The event is free, and open to all, so tell your friends and colleagues! But if you are planning to come, please register on Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/technical-writing-in-lean-and-agile-environments-tickets-22468971298 and they can let the venue know how much space to reserve for us and how many people are likely to want to order food.

Parking is available in the Tunsgate Multi Storey right next door to the Keep, or the Sydenham Road Multi Storey about 250 yards away, but be aware that some roads in the area are one-way streets, so check your directions carefully.

Come and speak at our “Trends in Technical Documentation” talks

Cherryleaf is curating and hosting a programme of talks on trends in technical documentation. At these sessions, there’s a presentation from a respected member of the Technical Communication profession, plus the opportunity to network with your peers.

We’re looking for people who would like to present a case study or share their view of the future trends in technical communication with their peers. It’s a great place to practice a presentation you’re preparing for a conference later in the year.

Each talk is hosted by Cherryleaf in central London, and lasts approximately two hours. Spaces are limited to 12 delegates.

The first talk was held on 24/1/2012: on What will be the future for Technical Communicators if everything ‘just works’?

The second talk is likely to be on technical authoring in The Cloud (if we can find an additional speaker).

If you’d like to explore the idea of speaking at one of these talks, then contact us and we’d be happy to discuss it with you.
