Exclusively for PR Council Members
PLEASE NOTE: The two workshops will run on consecutive days, Tuesday, October 11 & Wednesday, October 12, and will be held each day from 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET.
Nothing delights a client more than effective and professional writing. Join this informative, engaging and hands-on workshop to learn Bold Type’s three-part process for more efficient, effective, and empathetic written communication in the professional setting. Bold Type’s ART (Audience, Response, Tone) tool will guide you in defining the purpose of each document or message you write.
Participants will examine research-backed ways to grab and hold the attention of busy, distracted readers and learn the power of clarity, brevity, and word choice at the sentence level.
You’ll bring a written draft (examples below) to the workshop. After learning each new concept, you will have a chance to think about how it applies specifically to your document and scenario so you can start improving your work right away.
- Project briefings
- Email campaign copy and/or templates
- Ghost-written thought leadership pieces
- Talking points
