Sanborn Hodgkins gave a presentation to the STC Silicon Valley chapter called Shape of a Modern Technical Communication Organization on April 18. In the presentation, she highlights the variety of roles — editor, videographer, information architect, content strategist, manager, writer, tools developer, and others — that tech comm organizations need to thrive.

Presentation description

Here’s a description of the presentation:

Modern writing organizations need skills very different from basic writing. This session will cover the job roles and skills that your organization might need to adopt best practices. For example: content strategy, analytics, web and app development, taxonomist, linguists, etc, and how can you best incorporate these new skills and roles to partner with your writing team.

For more details, see the STC Silicon Valley event post.
