How to Get Gigs & Influence PeopleOur September 15 program will be an all-ACE event, with two of our writing experts facilitating an interactive exploration of the written word as we need it and use it. The main feature will be solutions to our common challenges and practical ideas from people just like you – except maybe they know how to write without the investment of excessive blood, sweat & tears.
ACE members Jim Milliken and Dave Griffiths regularly provide training and consultation in the various writing forms of the business and professional worlds. They will make that knowledge available in a lecture-free discussion based on issues and opportunities raised by ACE members. This free-form Q&A program will occupy the time slots usually devoted to a presentation and a member-led Round Table.
These two people have written frequently for many years, and they assist less-frequent writers for a living. For the price of admission to the September ACE meeting, you’ll get that benefit – and the best bacon around.
