Use Pair Writing to Enjoy Collaborating on Content with Stakeholders

Write with your stakeholders and focus on meeting user needs together.

About this webinar

Imagine a world where you’re happy to collaborate on content with anyone—however different your perspectives—because you know that you’ll focus on meeting user needs together.Where every piece of feedback helps to make content more effective. Where you feel satisfied after every content session because you’ve created something together that you couldn’t create on your own.Imagine a world where everyone enjoys collaborating on content.This isn’t a fantasy world. It’s real. You may have experienced it, or at least seen glimpses of it. Would you like to enter this world? Do you want to learn techniques that will make it appear? Pair writing is one of these techniques, and you’ll learn how to use it in this webinar.Pair writing is a technique for collaborating on content in real time. Instead of exchanging drafts or correcting with a red pen, two people sit down together to write. You can use it to collaborate with subject matter experts, stakeholders, or clients. In this webinar Jonathan Kahn, organiser of agile content conf, shows us how to use pair writing. You’ll learn how the technique works, watch a demonstration, and plan your next steps for using it in your next content project.

What will I learn?

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • What pair writing is
  • Why it helps to build trust and speeds up publishing processes
  • How to plan and structure a pair writing session with your stakeholders (as well as explaining the benefits to them)
  • What the process feels like during a live interactive demonstration
  • Your next steps for setting up a pair writing session

Feedback from attendees

"I was sceptical about pair writing because in my experience, working with SMEs to create useful and usable content sometimes seems like a contest of wills that drags on forever. However, after the webinar I applied the approach with a current client. This collaboration turned out to be a beautiful, repeatable and best of all, very efficient experience!"

– Kirk Grayson, Principal at Pedamento Content Strategy
