2008 IABC Business Writing Conference
Venue: The Allerton Hotel Chicago
|Event Date/Time: Oct 02, 2008||End Date/Time: Oct 03, 2008|
In todayâ€™s workplace, writing is considered a threshold skill for hiring and promotion among professional or salaried employees. â€œIn most cases, writing ability could be your ticket inâ€”or it could be your ticket out,â€ said one human resources director in a U.S. National Commission on Writing survey of 120 major corporations.
While all employees must be able to write, communication professionals must excel as the models for precise, coherent and engaging writing in their organizations.
The IABC Business Writing Conference offers training or retraining on the essential skills you need to write clearly and persuasively in the workplace. This conference will help you write for employees, shareholders, CEOs and the media. You'll hear from experienced professionals on writing for different media such as web and print. You will learn how to overcome information overload to reach your readers and how to improve your writing skills immediately.
Who should attend
Business professionals who want to improve their writing skills for job performance and career advancement. The conference is designed for communication professionals in the first five to seven years of their careers, although it may also serve as a refresher for more seasoned professionals.
