How would you create a winning pitch for your latest investment idea? Or persuasively argue for a major policy change? Or successfully ask your boss for a raise? The answer: clear and effective communication, whether in writing or through a presentation.

In Write For Your Life: A Guide to Clear and Purposeful Writing (and Presentations) Wheelan takes readers through the steps required to arrive at a coherent first draft, then explains the best ways to fine-tune your writing.

This event will be held on Zoom. To join us, please register online, and we will email you the link shortly before the program.
