TCUK19 Speaker Ellis Pratt – What skills will technical communicators need for the upcoming years?

Ellis Pratt will be giving a presentation at TCUK19 entitled “What skills will technical communicators need for the upcoming years?”.

The ways organisations support end users has changed over time. This is because new technologies emerge, products change, and users become more confident in using technology on a daily basis. We’ll look at how User Assistance is likely to change, and the skills technical communicators may need to have in the near future. We’ll also look at how Designers are facing similar issues, and how they are adapting.
