Graham's visibility within the field of technical writing is high, and he has been described by Canadian author Steve Slaunwhite as the "go to guy" for Fortune 500 companies such as Google, Rackspace and the Oracle Corporation. Also an expert on case studies, Graham has worked with Sprint, Intuit and Autodesk in the past.[4]

Graham is widely acknowledged as an industry expert on the topic of white papers. He has expressed strong views regarding what does and doesn't fall into the genre, as well as the notion that white papers as a genre have gradually become shorter documents with the passing of time.[5]
