Communication Killers

Communication Killers will be led by Keith Robinson of Purdue.

Are you a communication killer? Let’s hope not. Keith Robinson, a 25-year veteran of The Associated Press and now coordinator of news and public affairs in Purdue University’s College of Agriculture, will help you see for yourself. This webinar is ideal for student writers and new hires who lack substantial experience in writing as well as veteran writers and editors who might benefit from taking a fresh look at their craft. In this 45-minute webinar, Robinson will show you how to avoid “communication killers” like jargon, wordiness, unquoteworthy quotes, poor syntax, telling - not showing, vagueness, misuse of words and clichés.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
