How Technical Writers Can Earn a Seat At the Table and Take Control of Their Careers in 2023

Speaker: Daniel Codella

About the program

Artificial intelligence. Educated consumers. Chatbots. UX design. These are just a few trends threatening to render the role of the technical writer extinct. To avoid obsolescence, technical writers need to look beyond their traditional duties and start influencing business outcomes. This requires them to get out of their comfort zones and become trusted partners to leaders across their organizations. By aligning their work more closely with business priorities and making friends with influential members of the C-suite, they have the opportunity to earn a coveted “seat at the table.”

You’ll learn:

  • Which skills can make you indispensable to your organization
  • Strategies for building influence
  • How and why to take ownership of business outcomes
