How to Create Successful Council Documents

Writing about technical issues

My particular skill is translating complex issues into accurate and easy to understand information. I am passionate about clear writing to support consultation and decision-making processes.

Keith Marshall, Chief Executive, Nelson City Council

Your contribution was illustrated by the way you grappled with the dog control policy and bylaw. You remained committed to high quality community engagement through being professional, actively listening and seeking the best solution for our city. You have promoted and demonstrated personal leadership and positive attitudes.
