How To Write Gooder

You may be the most talented creative in the world, but if you can’t communicate what you do, why it matters and why you’re awesome, you’re hooped. But what’s the difference between a clear and concise message, and one that’s flabby and vague? How do you grab someone’s attention and keep it? And how do you do it without sounding like a smarmy greaseball? In this talk, you’ll learn simple ways to whip your writing into shape and tell compelling stories – without selling your soul.
