Wednesday, June 9th – Technical Communication Excellence: Crucial New Skills for the Coming Boom

Speaker: Paul Gustafson


As the pandemic eases, the economy improves, and we begin to settle into the new normal, technical writers see increasing global competition, advancing disregard for our profession, and dwindling resources leading to more difficult times. Others see vast largely untapped opportunities. This month, Paul Gustafson, CEO of Expert Support, perhaps Silicon Valley’s premier technical communication consulting firm for the last three decades, will present observations drawn from his unique vantage post working with clients ranging from industry titans to tiny start-ups. Paul will share his vision of an emerging, bright, near-term future for technical communication, and the crucial new skills required to realize it.
