Presented session:  Expanding Your Toolbox to Make You a More Productive Editor

An encore presentation of the session I presented at the 2019 STC Summit. Of the 72 that registered, 49 showed up. I had some good questions, and I received some LinkedIn invites afterwards with good feedback and additional tips (some of which I will include in future LinkedIn posts on my company page).

STC – New England Chapter’s Interchange Conference

October 26 and 27, 2018, Lowell, MA

Presented session: Engineering Your Networking Experiences

The theme for this conference was Engineering Experiences, so I updated some slides I had used on networking to give a session called Engineering Your Networking Experiences. I  was in the first session of the first day, right after the keynote, so I did my best to send InterChange attendees out into the rest of the conference and the world with some tools for better networking. It was gratifying to hear attendees use some of my phrases in talking to me and others in an effort to network and use what they learned.
