Upcoming Presentations

Over the next few months, I will be speaking at several events. If you’re there, please stop by and say hello.

  • Spectrum 2010, the annual conference of the Rochester, New York chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (April 9), where I’m delivering the keynote speech.
  • The Society for Technical Communication Annual Summit (Dallas, Texas, May 1-5)), where I’m scheduled to give a two-day certification program for technical communication managers.
  • Spring Symposium, of the Canadian Society for Training and Development (Calgary, Alberta, May 27-28), where, in a general session with Louise Grummit of Benchmark Performance, we’ll be unveiling the revised Competencies for Trainers and explaining how professionals can use them as a tool for guiding practice.
  • The Canadian Association for the Society for Adult Education (CASAE) Annual Conference, where I’m presenting three academic papers on various aspects of adult education for the workplace. CASAE’s conference is part of the annual Canadian Congress of the Humanities and Social Science (May 28-June 4), which my university is hosting.
  • The Canadian Association for the Study of Discourse and Writing (CASDW), where I’m presenting two academic papers, as well as a workshop on creating powerpoint capture presentations. This event is also part of the Congress, so I’ll be rollerskating between events.
