January Program: How to Avoid an International Incident

Tips and Tricks for Communicating with a Global Team

Technical communication has gone global. Modern technology allows us to work with subject matter experts or other writing colleagues in other time zones and different environments, all coordinating and working towards the common goal of producing something meaningful.

Whether you work with someone down the hall, in another state, or halfway around the world – communication is key. Learn ways to avoid having a frustrated team struggling with a project that will be late and over budget due to communication issues.

NOTE: Prior to the program, we will discuss the 2014 STC Houston Demographic Survey results, during the business portion of the meeting (which starts at 6 pm). See our programs page for more meeting details.
