Project Description

For this course we are going to workshop a topic that you need to communicate with someone, but you're worried it might be dull.

We'll apply the principles of the course to learn more about our audience and tailor our message for them in the most interesting way possible.

Start a document with something that is important for you to share with an audience, and what you hope will happen after you have shared your message. You'll be building on this throughout the course, so be sure you've made it clear!
