And now for a few words…
Printed, spoken, or online, words are still the best way to communicate with your target audiences. The right words − the right turn of phrase, at the right time, to the right people, and in the right format − can make a big contribution to your business and personal success! I offer writing and editing services, either as part of a larger project or as a stand-alone service.
When it comes to learning events, clear and purposeful communication can often make the difference when a potential registrant is considering whether to participate in your learning opportunities. Putting the focus on the benefits to participants − what they’ll receive in terms of practical value − is absolutely essential. Ask me about transforming your straight-forward session descriptions into objective-focused copy that addresses learning needs…and conveys a sense of “can’t miss this!” excitement!
Whether your writing need is specific to your organization’s learning activities, or for another purpose, let’s talk about your goals to see how we can achieve them together. Chances are I have experience in writing the type of material you need; I’ve written and edited news and feature articles, a variety of communications vehicles, and marketing materials of virtually every type. For more than 10 years I edited and published three association magazines, one of which was a refereed scientific journal.
