Words that Make Waves: Writing to Win

Presented by Holly Bolton, FSMPS, CPSM

In the architecture, engineering and construction industry, clients, owners and teaming partners often make decisions based on connections and relationships. Whether it’s a blog or a proposal cover letter, effective written communication holds the opportunity to connect the writer and reader through the information and the way it is presented. However, in many professional services firms, narratives often suffer from too many words, yet lack of meaningful content. This interactive session explores how to write with purpose so your message resonates with your audience. It covers both the strategic message and the writing style used to deliver it.
