Abstract:

The evolving multimedia and social media landscape create more opportunities for engineers to tell their story than ever before. You will get an inside look at how journalists strip down the technical details, capture attention, and get people to care when storytelling, selling, or pitching. Learn how to get your audience to stop their finger in their news feed and want to learn more about you, your research, and your work as an engineer.
