The weekend read

I know, communicators: By Friday, you feel like a distressed surface, a torn piece of paper, a shredded substance. Time to regroup and repair for the weekend, with my finds of the week, shared via @dontgetcaught on Twitter and curated here just for you. Rip right into this list:
I'm torn between having you come to one or the other of my two forthcoming workshops. Why not both?
  • For communications pros: If you work with scientists, physicians, policy wonks and other subject-matter experts, you'll find useful my popular workshop, Be an Expert on Working with Experts. The next session is February 4, 2015 in Washington, DC. Register at the link by January 9--that would be today--to get the best rate; all registration closes January 29 or when all seats are filled. Don't miss the workshop communicators call "informative and eye-opening." Of note to communicators in higher education: This workshop follows the CASE District II conference and is just a short Metro ride from your conference hotel.
  • For speakers, speechwriters, and conference organizers: What goes into a TED-quality talk, April 15 in Cambridge, UK, is a preconference session at the Spring Speechwriters & Business Communicators Conference which follows April 16-17. There's a discount at this link if you register for my workshop, which will  help speakers, speechwriters and TEDx organizers get a head start on TED-quality talks, whether you're aiming for the TED stage or for giving a talk in that style for everyday purposes.
I'm never distressed and always delighted to see you here on Fridays.  Sign up for my free monthly newsletter, register for one of the workshops above, or let me know how we can work together in 2015 with an email to eloquentwoman at
