Professional Development Luncheon: How to be Your Organization’s Go-To Speechwriter

April 12, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm


Crafting powerful speeches and remarks requires more than a flair for writing. But what are those things? Don’t miss this special presentation by Mary Jo Bohr, a communications and speechwriting pro who’s written speeches for scores of CEOs and other executives. In her presentation she’ll explore:

— The key differences between writing for the “ear” and writing for the “eye.”
— How to make “tired” topics sound fresh … even riveting.
— Keys to capturing the voice and style of the person you’re writing for.
— How to grab and keep an audience’s attention.

Whether you’re a seasoned writer or someone newer to the field, you’ll be glad you joined us. A full lunch will be served.
