The Houston Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (also know as IABC/Houston) is hosting a writing workshop as part of their monthly professional development luncheon.
Learn to write what you mean: The Writing Workshop will feature a hands-on training by The Writing Workshop‘s John Sturtevant.
This event will be held on July 28th. The luncheon starts at 11:15 a.m., and the workshop starts at 1:30 p.m.
I was lucky enough to take a brief workshop with John at last year’s PRSA Media Day, and it was well worth the price of admission. I don’t think I’m going to be able to go to this workshop, but I know that he’s slated to teach another 1-hour workshop at this year’s PRSA Houston PR Day 2005 and anticipate going to that one.
John’s bio, from the IABC/Houston site:
John Sturtevant has been a teacher and writer for nearly 20 years. He helps business people learn how to understand their business objectives, define clear goals, and create compelling communications.
John created The Writing Workshop based on his experiences teaching at Harvard Business School, where he helped design a business-writing curriculum for the MBA program. His course helped students learn to think analytically, develop a logical argument, and communicate clearly and persuasively in writing.
John also developed and taught two advanced writing courses at the European School of Economics in Rome, Italy.
