Using Checklists to Increase Consistency and Productivity in Communications Tasks with Kelly Schrank

Using Checklists to Increase Consistency and Productivity in Communications Tasks

Join Kelly Schrank in her presentation as she offers a new take on how using checklists can help keep your workflow in check while ensuring your peace of mind!

Presentation Description:

Anyone writing, editing, or managing any type of communications for a living is feeling the crunch. There is less time to create and edit; more types and formats of content; more apps, software, and systems to learn. And we expect quality, accuracy, and consistency from ourselves because we take pride in our work. In this session, we’ll discuss how to address a multitude of modern dilemmas with a relatively old-school hack: a checklist.

Come to this session to learn how using a comprehensive checklist created and updated for a specific communication task can help you differentiate workflows, systems, and activities; spell out style and formatting details, track your progress, document metrics, and give you a sense of completion and peace of mind.
