In our jobs, we (rightfully) focus on meeting the needs of our constituents. But things fall apart when we are faced with logistical nightmares, bureaucracy, micromanagement, and miscommunication.
This session will focus on the basics: scheduling meetings, taking meeting notes, handling document versions, creating documentation, and writing effective emails. Anyone can do these things — but not everyone is doing them right. No matter your role, learn the tips and tools to help you communicate clearly, make your life easier, and get stuff done.
