This year, to get to know our guest panelists and speakers, we’ve asked them to answer a few questions about language and writing in their daily lives.
A Few Questions
- What words define you and the way you work with clients or your internal teams?
The words that define me and the way I work with others are: honest, transparent, positive, and concise – I think it’s important to be transparent about what is going on and keeping communication concise so that it’s clear what you are trying to communicate. I always look for positive ways to work with people as that also helps motive others who are working on the project.
- In what situations do you say, “I really need to write this well”?
Anytime I’m writing and email, deck, presentation, etc. I think it’s important to make sure that you’re always thinking about who the audience is and that what you’re writing is clear.
- How do you close your email messages and why? (e.g. “best wishes,” “regards,” “sincerely”)
My everyday emails are signed off:
I find this to be professional yet not too formal to those people that I work with frequently.
When I’m writing an email to someone that I do not know as well or have an ask in the email, I usually sign it off as:
Thank you in advance,
These are both more formal and professional to those who I don’t have as much of a relationship with.
Thank you, Taryn!
