Breaking the Silence: How to Build Influence as a Tech Writer

Track 4 Tools Neutral • Communication

As technical writers, we have something incredibly valuable to share with the world – best practices, efficient workflows, writing styles, and so on – yet so few of us choose to share it. Maybe you’re the only writer in your organization, or maybe you don’t know the best way to go about getting started. Or the likely scenario: Your friends still don’t understand what you do, so why share your expertise if no one cares nor relates? Well, the good news is technical writers just look like you are desperately searching for influencers. The kind of influencers with diverse skill sets and backgrounds who graciously share their expertise with fellow colleagues. And the best part: You have the skills to become that influencer. In this presentation, you’ll learn how to use your expertise to build your influence, including how to find what to share, learn how to share it, and choose where to share it.
