Speaker: Augusta Branham, “Plain Language”

Augusta BranhamWhen a reporter calls you to ask if a “solid waste receptacle” is the same thing as a “garbage can,” or if you've ever been cc’d on a message to a resident from your boss that reads:

“Kindly allow the within to confirm that I am in receipt of your below correspondence. I understand that you appeared at the Governing Body meeting regarding same.” (Actual text.)

Perhaps it’s time to have a serious look at the language used in your organization.

Augusta Branham, Web Content Manager at the City of Fayetteville, AR, will explain how you can simplify your writing, eliminate jargon and adopt a consistent style guide to ensure communication that’s clear and precise – and accessible to people of all levels of education. More on Augusta's session >>
