This is a repeat of the well-received workshop I ran for TCANZ last year. Some of the feedback from the course includes:

  • Hamish has a wealth of knowledge on Author-it, which he is happy to share. He provides high quality training that is practical and effective. - Graeme Wilson
  • Hamish's tips along the way were absolute gold! He really has a knack for providing really useful examples and workarounds... fodder for several aha! moments. - Myron Rodrigues
  • Excellent course, very good presenter who answered all queries thrown at him. - Max Hansen
  • Hamish certainly knows Author-it, and he is able to clearly articulate useful ideas and concepts.
  • The workshop was well pitched and covered a range of advanced topics. Hamish was able to customise the course to meet the needs of the group and explained things in a clear and concise way.

I have been recognised by Author-it as an Author-it Certified Consultant. Author-it Certified Consultant

I have been a technical writer since 1999 and have worked with Author-it since 2005. My first experience with Author-it was leading an implementation project for a 10, 000 page documentation suite. I specialise in customising output for Word, help, and HTML – pushing beyond Author-it’s out-of-the-box look and feel. Another area of interest is getting Author-it to work within the organisation by providing the right processes and procedures (including automating many aspects of authoring and publishing).

I currently provide Author-it consultancy on a freelance basis. If you have any questions about how I can help you, contact me.
