Minnesota Women in Marketing Communications Women@Work Workshop on Tuesday, May 18

Minnesota Women in Marketing Communications (MWMC) announces the Women@Work Workshop on Tuesday, May 18. This presentation focuses on improving productivity – using writing as a powerful tool for getting things done. Stan Berry, professional writing coach from Berry Writing Group, will teach attendees how to write quickly and effectively, saving time for themselves and their readers. Attendees will impress others with their ability to get to the point quickly, clearly, and concisely. Project managers will especially appreciate learning how to more effectively meet important deadlines and keep projects on target.

Workshop objectives: The concepts provided in this program teach people to present their ideas clearly in all business communications, regardless of length or medium including letters, memos, reports, business decision documents, voice mail and e-mail messages.

Attendees will learn how to:
• Clarify thoughts before writing,
• Separate the readers’ needs from the writer’s needs,
• Use the inverted-pyramid principle of organization,
• Use the three models of organization, and
• Write technical information to non-technical people.
