Communications: you know it’s important, but where do you start? When you’re rolling out a new initiative or communicating a change, how do you explain it to people and get them to take action? How do you get them to understand what’s happening and what you want them to do?

In this session, Cari Rutkoskie of Words Matter Consulting will talk through some communications best practices, then facilitate a workshop to help you build a plan to communicate in a simple, clear and compelling way. To get the most benefit out of the workshop, please bring a project, initiative or topic for which you’ll build a communications plan during the session.

Cari is the Principal & Owner of Words Matter Consulting LLC. She has helped large organizations, small businesses, and non-profits communicate clearly and tell compelling stories to shape cultures, attract talent, drive engagement, strengthen brands, and clarify vision, mission, goals, and strategy. She believes that words matter and is passionate about how they connect, engage, and inspire people and help organizations achieve their goals. Cari has over 20 years of brand and communications experience, with special expertise in employment branding and organizational communications.
