Presentation Title: Two Simple Habits for More Effective Business Writing

This presentation will focus on two simple changes professionals can make to their writing process to make the outcome more effective. First, we will walk through the 7 critical questions to ask yourself before writing a single word, including questions to clarify your purpose and visualize your audience. Second, we will learn to separate drafting, which should be very fast, from revising, which should be longer and occur only after a physical break from writing. Discussion will include the neuroscience supporting these practices. The presentation includes practicing these steps on provided material and on participants' own work.

Audience Takeaways
  • The 7 questions to ask before writing anything
  • Why the 7 questions are important
  • When to revise
  • The neuroscience behind why proofreading is so hard
  • Techniques for proofreading
