The weekend read

Here comes the weekend, communicators, like a brightly decorated egg you had to hunt for in the gigantic lawn that was your week. Time to work on getting smarter by Monday with my curated finds-of-the-week, shared on Twitter and here for you. No need to hunt further:
I've got workshops coming up. You are coming to them, aren't you?
  • On May 15, I'll be convening another session of Be The Eloquent Woman in Washington, DC. It's a subversive new workshop that helps women executives and public officials learn how women speakers are perceived and how to subvert those expectations with confidence, content and credibility. Go here to read how the first workshop went and what participants had to say. All registration closes May 8, and seats are filling, so sign up now.
  • On June 19, also in Washington, DC, I'll convene a session of Be an Expert on Working with Experts that's open to the public. Designed for communications pros who work with subject-matter experts, scientists and policy researchers, this is a popular workshop--and you get an early discount for registering by May 9. This is the workshop I wish I'd had earlier in my career, based on my own effort to understand why the smart folks I work with weren't always willing to cooperate with my communications efforts.
Whatever you're hunting for this weekend, I hope you find it. Thanks for stopping by here on a Friday as usual!
