Ben Woelk, technical communicator and Information Security Office Program Manager at the Rochester Institute of Technology, talks about being an introverted leader and how it’s changed his career and his passion.
Bernard Aschwanden, President of Publishing Smarter, STC Immediate Past President, and Ed’s twin talks about certification, why your content is not your own, building a house (literally), process vs process, finding his spouse through STC, social networking, and more.
I’m very excited to present a workshop on jumpstarting your career at the new East Coast TC Camp next weekend, July 30th, at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. My talk focuses on what social media and podcasting can do for you and your career. Some great folks are going to be attending – and hopefully presenting – as well.
Todd DeLuca, a Pennsylvanian who manages a remote tech writing team, shares with us how volunteering and presenting has elevated his career, what it’s like to manage a technical communication team, volunteering with intention, and how to promote yourself and your team within your company.
It’s been a hectic and busy September, but my updated business cards came in time for me to attend two conferences this month.
I’m excited to be able to attend the Content Camp Philadelphia this weekend on Sept. 19. Philly is a great beer town, so let’s get a beer afterwards!
I’ll also be at Information Development World in San Jose from Sept. 30-Oct. 2. Somehow I managed to win admission by tweeting. Big thanks to Danielle Villegas of Dair Communications for the opportunity!
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to record a new Content Content podcast this month. But, I’m especially excited to meet a lot of people at these conferences, especially outside of my usual TechComm comfort zone. I’m hoping to line up some guests for future podcasts. For now, you can listen to the latest podcast with Marcia Riefer Johnston, which has been popular not only in the technical communication realm, but also the world of content marketing.
If you’re attending either of these conferences, please say hi!
