How do we ensure that everything we write is understandable on first reading? How do we motivate and inspire our readers? How do we make sure that our communication achieves its desired effects? The answer to these questions is simple: put the power of plain language to work! In this lively and interactive presentation, we’ll explore why plain language matters and how to achieve it. You’ll leave with some strategies and resources for ensuring that your written work is concise, clear, and credible.
