Dr Neil James explores both the serious and the light side of communication.
Writing at Work
A manual for effective, clear, professional writing.
In every workplace, even the best ideas can fail if you can’t communicate them effectively. Writing at Work, by Neil James, has been road-tested in our writing skills workshops with professionals from government and law, business and finance, engineering and IT. It’s a practical guide for anyone who needs to get it right the first time, whether they’re writing submissions, reports, letters, emails or memos.
When exactly did we all become ‘stakeholders seeking to leverage our paradigms to achieve best-practice scenarios moving forward’?
Modern Manglish by Neil James and Harold Scruby, illustrated by cartoonist Alan Moir, explores the world of linguistic traps. It exposes the latest Manglish in serially offending professions such as politics, business, and the law — all contenders for the Manglish crown. Mixed metaphors and mispronunciation, euphemisms, tautologies, and jargon ranging from sports talk to silly signs, and food speak to fancy-pants job titles.
