TCANZ in April

In April, TCANZ presents “Persuasive Communication – How to Make a Difference.” Popular presenter and successful consultant Heather Grace will be speaking to our Christchurch and Wellington branch meetings about “key tools you can use immediately to communicate with persuasion. Inspire others with your ideas, be convincing, get people to listen and take action!” Please register to join these branch meetings in Christchurch – April 1st  and in Wellington – April 10th.

Our Auckland branch has their meeting on April 28th, with Neil Airey  presenting about “Accessibility and Understanding of Processes“, demonstrating how you can document business processes to ensure that they are easy to access and understand. Many positions and contracts that overlap with technical communication involve business process documentation.

Speaking of improving your CV, in April you can register for our upcoming May workshop, Introduction to MadCap Flare. Presenter Emily Cotlier notes, “I’ve had several calls this year from recruiters seeking writers with MadCap Flare experience.”

During April, behind the scenes, your TCANZ committee is continuing to put together the October conference, and finalizing our new, responsive web site. We’d like to note our particular appreciation of Sue Brown and Bekah Neal, our Wellington branch coordinators, and of our new Marketing Communications coordinator, Rhiannon Davies.

And we hope that you have an enjoyable and safe holiday week between Easter and Anzac Day.
