What others have said
Rebecca and Step Two Designs have provided a valuable and much needed service to our intranet content authors by clearly demonstrating techniques and aspects to consider when authoring content. The session gave them time to get hands on experience using their own content to re-write in the session and allow Rebecca to provide feedback and areas of improvement. With these new techniques our authors with the support of the intranet team can now start the journey of improving the content and provide a better intranet experience for our people at Bupa.

Rebecca is one of the best consultants I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She has always provided excellent advice and support and all the projects we have worked on together have had terrific outcomes.

We had Step Two perform review of our new intranet three months after its launch. Rebecca Rodgers did a great job of getting to know our organisation and the goals we have for our intranet. The review accurately identified the strengths and weaknesses of our recently implemented intranet and provided a clear schedule of activities to focus on for the next 12 months.

As a one person intranet team, I personally have found Rebecca’s support, mentoring and guidance invaluable. Her broad experience with all things intranet, coupled with her experience in working with many different companies and cultures lends itself to anyone who needs first-class advice and assistance. Rebecca also runs web writing workshops for our staff – many of whom have responded well to Rebecca and her style of teaching and sharing knowledge. I highly recommend working with Rebecca. Your project, your intranet and your professional development will be so much better for it!
- Kristy Long, Intranet Manager and Staff Communications Consultant, Energex
We recently went through a CMS migration so took the opportunity to run a series of Writing for the Intranet workshops with our authors. They had never had this opportunity before and the feedback we received was very positive. Quite a few people said the workshops had not only helped develop their intranet writing, but also their wider business communication skills. The great thing about these workshops too is the focus not just on the writing skills, but understanding your audience and the role of your intranet. As a result, we now also have an intranet that is almost ‘vanity content’ free and an author community keeping it that way! Thanks Rebecca and Step Two Designs.
