Course Description:

As we learn so often when we speak, how you say something is just as important as what is actually said. When it comes to creating content for your members, a similar concept can be applied. This session will offer easy-to-apply strategies for creating and sharing content in ways that your members will benefit from, engage with, and turn to as a trusted source.
