Why you should keep learning – Podcast#3

Why you should keep learning – In Episode#3 of the TDW podcast Mike talks about the key reasons he believes why you should keep learning and that keeping your skills current and relevant in the technical information field is vital to survival!

Traditional technical information production and deployment methods is gradually and will continue to change! With the gentle shift for major OEM’s and Tier 2&3’s to outsource more and more technical publications requirements, Mike talks about the key data points he is seeing that is driving this trend and where organisations are now slowly investing more time, money and energy. We as technical communicators must be aware of this trend, this shift, this move, especially if we need to remain current and relevant to our organisations.

Mike Ingledew

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
