AGENDA PRESENTERS WHO ATTENDS REGISTER NOW

We've all heard the conventional wisdom: Nobody reads anymore. All content must be visual. But every good story begins with words. Take a deep breath and remember why you chose this profession: the joy of moving an audience with your words. If you’re trying to recapture what that feels like, join Mark Ragan and Jim Ylisela for their new, one-day seminar.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Make every word count for impatient, distracted audiences
  • Write headlines and teasers readers can't ignore
  • Choose the right words to enliven video, photos, infographics and social media
  • Fine-tune your reporting skills to add color and texture to your storytelling
Don’t miss this unique opportunity!
