✅ I make your profile visible, legible and credible. I am a Profile Doctor, improving profiles since 2006 at LinkedIn. Now I'm here, paying careful attention.
I recently published my Ten Top Tips for a better Polywork Profile in an interactive online document

I'm a Scotsman, former UK Editor at The Next Web 2008/9, and founded Arts & Culture EdinburghFestival.org in 2007.

A good profile here on Polywork will power your visibility, legibility and credibility. It will make you look better, sound better and connect better. It will bring you more opportunities. It will get you new gigs or full time work. See doc.scot/polywork for details of my profile surgery service.

Want to talk about your profile? Whether it's Polywork or LinkedIn, arrange a free 10-minute call with me to suit your agenda — my diary robot will take care of timezones and finding free time in my diary.
