The Editor as Collaborator: Communication Makes the Difference

Speaker: Lori Meyer

About the presentation

Editing skills play an essential role in quality technical communication. However, even the most skilled editors need to communicate professionally and effectively with writers. This presentation will discuss how effective communication with colleagues and clients is an enduring principle that helps editors enhance team communication, improve documentation, and provide writers with valuable insights to strengthen their writing.
