Helping you to write legible, credible, compelling documents. 

"If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with a shortage of flowers."  - Doug Larson.                                                  

Yes, the English language can be confusing, but how we communicate needn't be. 

With all the rules and conventions that govern our language, creating word-perfect business documents can seem like a time-consuming luxury. Yet evidence tells us that it's the well-written that win us what the poorly written lose us - credibility and customers. 

There is a wealth of helpful advice available on how to write well, but as we know, not everyone has the time to seek it out. So please, enjoy this handy tip on us.

You and I, or you and me?

 

Tip:-   Repeat the sentence to yourself, removing the other person from it.

 
Example 1: This is what you and (I or me) look like.
Sentence without the other person: This is what I look like.
Correct complete sentence: This is what
you and I look like.
Example 2: This is clearly a sign for you and (I or me).
Sentence without the other person: This is clearly a sign for me.
Correct complete sentence: This is clearly a sign for you and me.
 Please note that in both examples the same rules also apply if 'you' is replaced by another person.
