8:45am to 9:30am
It's no surprise to those of us working in technical and scientific fields -- in fact, just about ANY field -- that technical communication is (and always has been) changing. In our industry more than any, the only constant is change. And that change makes boundaries a very ambiguous concept. Sadly, human brains are wired to be habitual, and change makes us uncomfortable. But to move beyond survival in our industry to thrive and find great success, you must become comfortable with ambiguity and learn to love change. This keynote will help you to get started or to progress along your already change-embracing path. Expanding on the style of David Letterman and the Late Show Top Ten List, Andrea will describe her top 10 ways technical communicators should drive change and break boundaries...
