Global Water Partnership makes a splash at the 5th World Water Forum

World Water Forum booth - GWPI was very excited this morning to see the photos of the booth that we recently designed for the Global Water Partnership. Launched at last week’s 5th World Water Forum, the booth’s design provides an attention grabbing boost to their already strong brand.

Though I wasn’t there myself, I’m told that it was a real success, with GWP’s dynamic team making the most of the opportunity to showcase the great work that their organization does around the world.

 All the best,

Jim

New website for the Global Forum on Agricultural Research

Sending Word and PowerPoint by e-mailWe’re very pleased to announce the launch of the new Global Forum on Agricultural Research website, as part of a whole communications strategy we’ve been developing for this important group. The aim of the work was to produce a vibrant, modern website that would guide readers to the information and tools they need. And the enthusiastic feedback so far suggests we’ve done just that.

So, if you’re involved in agricultural research, why not take a moment to visit the Forum’s new site? Simply running your cursor down the buttons at the side of each page will tell you what information is available in each section. And, if you have important news, events or publications to share with the world, this portal allows you to publish them instantaneously. To go to the site, click here.

All the best,

The Scriptoria Team

Trouble e-mailing PowerPoint and Word documents! Why didn’t you say?

Sending Word and PowerPoint by e-mailI’ve spoken at various government meetings in Africa this month on the subject of development communications, and I’ve also given a couple of training courses with other members of the Scriptoria team. Several people at these events have said to me that something they find very hard is emailing PowerPoint and Word documents containing photos to colleagues - because their email simply can’t cope.

What people don’t seem to realize is that you only have to press a couple of buttons in Word and PowerPoint to optimize images and vastly reduce file sizes - which means you can send them to your colleagues almost anywhere in the world, even when their internet connections are very slow.

So, I’m posting here step-by-step instructions. I’d value your comments.

All the best,
