I am truly honored and humbled by these (largely unsolicited) testaments by my colleagues and clients.
Don and I were engaged as independent technical writer/editors by CCCi to work remotely for HP in Cincinnati, OH. HP was engaged by Pfizer to upgrade their telecommunications to VOIP. Although Don and I worked on documents for different project aspects, we collaborated practically on a daily basis. His knowledge and adequate way of converting information into readable material is an asset to any team.
Annelize Dean, Knowledge Manager / Senior Technical Writer at Hewlett Packard
Don White has impressed me with his extensive knowledge of various software applications and network structure that he has accumulated from his 30 years as a technical writer. Don is very professional and personal; he has never missed a deadline. Even though I managed him and his work load, I considered Don a valuable team member. Don has completed everything I've asked him to do regardless of the short/long deadlines.
Brian Beall, Program Analyst, HP Enterprise Services
Don is an organized, professional person and I enjoyed working with him on several technical communication activities. Don oversaw some STC activities I was involved with. He kept things rolling, and really had an eye for the emerging technologies.
Kay Whatley, President & Founder of Bright Path Solutions
I would strongly recommend Don for any web project. He has a deep level of expertise and delivers results. He quickly got a sense of how we wanted to use our website and then presented several options and suggestions on how best to accomplish our goals. I would definitely work with Don again on future projects.
Jeffrey Cannon, CIO, Fire and Life Safety America
Don was a highly valued member of the Knowledge Team at Eli Lilly. He is a very detailed and quality oriented technical writer. He is highly skilled in a variety of content tools. My team looked to him as our technical guru. He also developed and managed our SharePoint Issues log and worked with the reporting team when ad hoc requests were received from the client for specific reports. I highly recommend that he be considered as a viable candidate in any position he applies for.
Jean Spicer, MBA, ITIL , ITIL Knowledge Component Owner for Eli Lilly, Hewlett-Packard
As the Lead Technical Writer and Operations Lead, I performed the screening and recommendation for Donald to be hired as a contingent worker on an HP health care contract. I found Donald to be a detail-oriented technical writer, interviewer, and researcher. He has a broad-based skill set and is willing (and quite able) to show his expertise through tasks and collaborative team work. Donald met deliverable time lines consistently and achieved milestones needed to meet the high demands of the client.
Nancy Louise Stevens, Document and Records Management for Quality and Compliance Office at HP Enterprise Services
Donald arranged and managed the core of the James River STC Conference and I had the opportunity to present at this great event. Attention to detail was clear in the way the event was promoted, delivered, and managed behind the scenes. I often travel from city to city to present, and I can say that this event was very well run. The clear communication, professionalism of the organizers, and attention to detail were evident in the way the event was organized, promoted, and run. Based on these things alone I'd recommend him to anyone looking to work with a team player who provides value to partners. Great job from start to end.
Bernard Aschwanden, President, Publishing Smarter
Don White impressed our client, who had been picky about the quality of resource and work. Don had been very cooperative, was methodical and diligent.
Sree Pokala, Recruiter at PAE Group, A Lockheed Martin Company
Don worked for me twice, at Philip Morris and at Perot Systems as a Technical Writer. Don is extremely eloquent and his work is exceptional.
Lila Loutfi LaCroix
Don did a great job as the secretary of the STC Consulting and Independent Contracting Special Interest Group. His designs of the minutes, our new brochure, and the online book were superb. He was tenacious in following up on action items from the minutes and with the online book authors.
