There’s a lot more to technical writing than writing, and professionalism is about being competent at all aspects of the job. At this meeting hosted by the Canada West Coast Chapter Society for Technical Communication, Andre Lanz will explore the diverse tasks that constitute a technical writing project, the skills we need to complete those tasks, and the relative importance of those skills.

Along the way, Andre will draw from his long experience working in engineering environments to let you in on a few secrets related to collecting information, dealing with engineers, and establishing a successful career. This one’s sure to dispel some myths and provide some insights!

Speaker biography:
