Speechwriters and coaches: Up your game when working with experts and scientists

Speechwriters and speaking coaches spend plenty of time with smart folks--policy wonks, subject-matter experts, scientists and engineers. Now here's a chance for you to get smarter about working with them effectively. Be an Expert on Working with Experts is a popular workshop I'm offering on February 1, 2012 in Washington, DC.

The one-day session is designed to help you learn how to identify experts' default communications styles and behaviors; understand how they're likely approaching that next big talk or speech to a non-expert audience; and how to handle effectively the challenges they present you. If you've ever had an expert accuse you of "dumbing down" their content, walk out of a coaching session, or freeze at the start of a speech, this workshop will help you figure out how to better prepare them and work with them.

You get a break on registration if you book your space at the workshop no later than January 25, for $300; after that, registration is $350. The workshop is limited in size, so book your space today. You'll get the benefit of my experience working with all types of technical experts, scientists and engineers--this is the workshop I wish I'd had!  Please email me at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz with questions. I look forward to seeing you at the workshop.
