Write to Influence! Fundamentals for Business Professionals

A very worthwhile workshop – well done!

The presentation on Word Sculpting Fundamentals was educational and engaging!  The practice exercises were applicable and challenging.

I recommend this workshop to others and we will use the tools presented to advance our communication.

Workshop for Middle Grade Students — Essential Tools for Powerful Writing

What a treat to have Carla Bass, author of Write to Influence!, speak to my 7th and 8th grade English classes.

Her presentation on powerful writing, which included tips on streamlining, editing redundancies, and using strong verbs, was specific, useful, and tailored for middle school students.

She included time to respond, discuss, and practice throughout her presentation.

Col. Bass kept my students’ attention with her effortlessly commanding presence and warm demeanor as well as her excellent presentation.

In classes following her visit, my students often referred to her presentation. One student wrote in her end-of-year self-assessment, “I have been trying to use the toolbox Col. Bass told us about, and I think my writing has gotten better.”

I warmly recommend Col. Bass to other schools.
