Seminar: Managing Editorial Teams with Carolyn Brown – April 26, In-Person

We are pleased to offer this seminar in-person at the Sheraton Ottawa Hotel. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

If you are an editor thinking of moving up into supervision or management of other editors, or if you’re not an editor but you supervise editors, this one-day seminar is for you. Through sharing experiences, you will learn from the leader (an experienced editorial manager) and each other. 

Topics include:

  • Making the transition to management (for editors)
  • Editors are professionals (for non-editors): Motivation, autonomy, professional development, professional standards and ethics
  • Helping your team understand their role in the organization
  • Aligning with senior management expectations, or, Why do documents need to be edited and why does editing take so long?
  • Balancing tensions and resolving conflicts between professional roles and organizational expectations
  • Selling your organization on the value editing adds and promoting “upstream” quality control
  • Serving your organization by adding value such as plain language and web content
  • Creating a positive, consistent editing culture that meets industry standards: style guides, editorial issues, professional editorial standards
