The 2013 IABC International Chapter of the Year is thrilled to offer a full-day workshop with Ann Wylie of Wylie Communications Inc.

If writing is an important part of your job and you’ve never had the opportunity to participate in an Ann Wylie workshop or seminar; you’re in for a treat! And if you’re already familiar with Ann, you’re probably checking your calendar and looking for the registration link.

Ann has worked with clients around the globe and is consistently recognized as a top-rated speaker at IABC and PRSA conferences and meetings from coast to coast. Join us as she brings her “Catch Your Reader” full-day workshop to Tulsa.

Expect to leave this event inspired and motivated – ready to return to the office with fresh ideas and new tools that help you:

  • Think like a reader and move your audience to act
  • Go beyond the inverted pyramid and master the feature-style story structure
  • Cut through the clutter and make every piece you write easier to read and understand
  • Rev up your readership and lift your ideas off the page or screen with display copy

This may be the most valuable professional development opportunity you’ve had this year – or may even have next year. And IABC Tulsa is offering this workshop to members and non-members alike.

Members: $59 | Non-Members: $99 | Student Discount: $55

The registration fee includes continental breakfast, lunch, snacks and parking in the Bank of America building’s parking garage (enter from Boulder Ave.).
