The brief: Four explorers who won a competition and were familiar with social media but not experienced in writing, needed training to understand there’s a big difference between keeping a diary and writing for an audience – and needed illustrations of some of the pitfalls bloggers can fall into.
The delivery: An hour-long Powerpoint on editor’s tips, 1st v 3rd person writing, avoiding cliché, how to listen and recognize stories, defamation, photo theft and basic video.
The verdict: “Steve guided the team through the hazards of clichés and excessive use of exclamation marks; away from the perils of libel and defamation, towards the boundless potential of publishing in the multi-media world. Drawing on his extensive experience, he introduced the team to the art of digital story-telling and the treasure trove of tales one destination can yield” – Jill Lloyd, senior PR manager, Expedia EMEA.
