TCUK 2015

The Technical Communication UK (TCUK) conference for 2015 will be in Scotland for the very first time. TCUK 2015 takes place on 29th and 30th September and 1st October, and is at the Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre, at Dalmuir in Clydebank, just outside Glasgow.

TCUK is the ISTC’s annual conference for everyone involved in writing, editing, illustrating, delivering and publishing technical information.

This year’s special focus is Breaking the Boundaries of Technical Communication.

One of the exciting aspects of technical communication is its changing nature. Assumptions are being challenged, boundaries are being broken, as technical communicators meet the needs of users. You’ll be hearing from others about their experience of, and thoughts on, moving beyond the technical communication that we know today.

Meet up #2 for SW England area group – Wednesday 8th July 2015 at 19.30

Venue: The George Inn (head upstairs to “Abbot’s Retreat”)

General topic to underpin conversation for this meet is ‘productivity’. Some prompts to get the mental cogs turning:
* What productivity challenges do you have? What do you struggle with in terms of getting stuff done? Coping with email is sure to be a common theme – what others?

* What methods have you developed or discovered to improve your productivity in some area? Perhaps others can learn from it, suggest improvements or at least enjoy hearing about it?

* What methods have you heard good things about but never tried? Perhaps others have and can share their experiences with pros/cons?

Please use this link to Eventbrite to register your attendance

Hope to see you there!
