Power word list


Pack your presentations whether written or spoken, with punch. You can make a difference to the way you present yourself and your achievements by simply selecting the right words. This can be in writing in your CV, cover letter or LinkedIn profile. Or perhaps when you are talking to your boss at your annual review,  introducing yourself in a meeting or at a networking event. Maybe you are standing up in a conference. Whatever the situation – be prepared to back up your key core message to back up your unique value proposition.


Get rid of “pudding words.” Pudding words are light and fluffy, easily digestible but with short lived energy. They include helped, worked with, assisted, coordinate.

It’s important to showcase your achievements using the right language. Make sure you pick the right words to reflect the value you have added. Enhance your personal brand by selecting impactful language which will make you stand out without bragging! .
