‘Write Better at Work’ is the Q3 2022 workshop for OSAP presented by Teresa Zumwald
ENGLEWOOD, Ohio, Oct. 19, 2022 – Teresa Zumwald will teach the third-quarter workshop – “Write Better at Work: Six Ways to Be More Professional and Accelerate Your Career” – to members and guests of the Ohio Society of Association Professionals (OSAP) from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 25 via Zoom.
Zumwald is the CEO, speechwriter and storyteller at Zumwald & Company.
Here’s how Zumwald and OSAP describe the session:
If you have a hunch that the level of professionalism in business writing is slipping, you are not alone: 86 percent of employees and executives blame poor communication and collaboration as the main causes of failures in business, according to research by Salesforce.
“Clear writing is a sign of clear thinking,” wrote Basecamp founder Jason Fried in his book, “Rework.” “If you are trying to decide among a few people to fill a position, hire the best writer. … Writing is today’s currency for good ideas.”
During the workshop, OSAP member Teresa Zumwald will take a deep dive into how we write (and why that may be holding us back at work). In this practical, tactical follow-on session to OSAP’s third-quarter panel discussion on “Tailoring Your Style for Professional Advancement,” Zumwald will present:
- What unprofessional business writing looks like
- The risks to you and your organization when your business writing is less than professional
- The rewards of upping your game
- What to do first (that others can’t or won’t do)
- Five problem areas in business writing to fix now (if you want to get promoted faster)
- A bonus to help you invest in yourself starting today
Registration is now open on the OSAP website.
The cost for this 1.5-hour continuing education-accredited webinar is $75 for members and $115 for nonmembers.
It will also be recorded for viewing later.
