When: Tuesday, May 18 | 1-4 p.m.

This workshop focuses on improving productivity – using writing as a powerful tool for getting things done. Attendees will learn how to write quickly and effectively, saving time for themselves and their readers. They 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.

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 our three models of organization
Write technical information to non-technical people
