From Business Writing to Consulting
This webinar will demonstrate how you can leverage your technical writing experience and knowledge to directly support clients, not just write about others doing it. As a Business Writer working for a service-based consulting firm, I have found many opportunities to extend my technical writing skills to new areas. This includes providing business analysis, conducting assessments at client sites, and supporting business development efforts.
The goal of this webinar is to provide an introduction to business writing and how it can lead to new opportunities. The session will highlight:
- The differences between business and technical writing.
- Business writing as a viable alternative for technical writers seeking a change of pace.
- Business writing as not just descriptive of work performed by your consultants, but as a tool to position your organization for follow-on work.
- Leveraging the knowledge gained from writing about services to begin actually performing those services as a consultant.
