I have yet to find something that Linda Tate cannot do. From our first work together launching one of the first online K-12 education programs to our current collaborations on everything from scholarly articles to consumer eNewsletters, Linda is the essence of “can-do.” She is super smart, uber personable, and fairly vibrates with enthusiasm. She GETS it, no matter what IT is. I’ve recommended Linda to every client I’ve ever supported – before they even ask! – because I know they’ll love her, and I’ll look like a hero. I happily and unequivocally endorse Linda Tate. If only she’d run for office….
Collaborating with Linda has been an eye opener, showing me what productivity and effectiveness can look like in the professional writing and editing world. Her ability to organize thoughts, content, and work flow is remarkable. She reacts elegantly to well-perceived group or system dynamics, making her a valuable member of a working team. She lubricates the machine, filling gaps where she sees them. Her understanding of style and meaning allows for simple, clear, and enjoyable writing. I have watched her interact with many new people, and each person seems to walk away from her thinking, “At last, I’ve found her!”
I provided illustration services, where I worked with Linda on a special multi-day event. The engagement involved heightened communication around the needs of the client and changes to the schedule. Linda’s exceptional written and oral communication clearly guided me to the outcomes of the program. When on site, I enjoyed my interactions with her. She was cognizant of my needs and was always in service to both her clients and to the contractors. Plus she was fun, we shared many laughs and enjoyed our time serving the client. I thoroughly enjoyed partnering with such a professional colleague.
A writer’s best friend is the best editor. Linda Tate, friend/writer/colleague/editor, is the best of the best. Before I release important work, I fly it by Eagle-Eye-Editor-Linda. Her editorial skills are a rare combination of careful, detailed attention, and intuitive sensibility.
Linda’s expertise was invaluable. With her excellent writing and editing skills, we now have very professional and well-written marketing materials. Her ability to pull together the many bits and pieces of information we had into organized, cohesive documents was especially notable, as well as much needed. Thank you, Linda!
